Do you want to accelerate your learning ability? Learn new skills with ease? Improve your IQ? Balance your time between learning and managing? "Learning Skills for Managers" is all about what managers need to know about learning. A practical mix of tools, techniques, models, learning maps and mnemonics, this book aims to accelerate your learning ability, so that learning is no longer a necessary distraction to the "day job", but a regular, achievable, fascinating - and fun - part of your job. In today's business world of rapid technological change and fierce competition, knowledge is the manager's most powerful weapon. Continuous, lifelong learning is the key to staying ahead of the pack. Many managers find they must learn new skills and upgrade their old skills, both on- and off-the-job, through training, experience and sometimes a return to formal education. Yet many managers lack the skills to increase and improve their learning power.

In "Learning Skills for Managers", Samuel A. Malone discusses how to: integrate the analytical and creative parts of your brain; discover your own learning style; improve your learning IQ and your memory; explore the learning organization; balance your time between learning and managing; learn essential study, writing and examination techniques; and become an on-the-job and off-the-job learner. This book should be of value to all managers who need to learn new skills or upgrade their old skills. It is intended for both those taking part in on-the-job training and to those who are returning to formal education.
