It is a pleasure to announce the arrival of a new item recently added to cIRcle, UBC’s digital repository resulting from the collaborative efforts between a world-renowned scholar and several of UBC’s academic research units and community partners – School of Music, Hong Kong Studies Initiative, Centre for Chinese Research, Museum of Anthropology, and St. John’s College.

 

Nancy Yunhwa Rao is an Associate Director of Academic Studies who is both the Head of the Composition Program and the Head of the Music Theory Program of the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. As “one of the leading scholars in Chinese American music studies”, she has amassed award-winning research which focuses on the “musical history of Chinese in the United States, Canada, and Cuba” which she “mined [from] immigration files” and so forth.

 

Examples of her published research are found in a variety of journal publications such as the “Cambridge Opera Journal, Journal of the Society for American Music, Journal of 19th Century Music Review, as well as several collections of essays”. Interestingly, she has published ‘a book on Chinatown Opera Theater in North America via the University Illinois Press’ which is completely filled with the “analysis of playbills, performing networks, opera arias, stage spectacles, and more”.

It's no secret that business owners need many different skills to succeed: they're responsible for everything from making strategic decisions to making sure the water bill is paid on time. But amid the daily bustle, one important skill is at risk of being overlooked: management.

Why Does Management Matter?

Good management is essential for small business survival, but many entrepreneurs might not have strong management skills. Management skills are often learned on the job and are "understudied and undertaught" compared to leadership skills, largely because it can be difficult to describe what managers do on a day-to-day basis.

In addition to writing job descriptions and recruiting candidates, entrepreneurs need do a variety of managerial tasks like figuring out how to give productive feedback to your employees and creating a healthy workplace environment. Because of this, entrepreneurs who successfully launch their product or service can struggle when their employee count begins to grow.

Support for Managers

For those interested in brushing up on their managerial skills, we have good news – you’re not alone! There are a variety of resources designed to support BC entrepreneurs who want to bolster their managerial skills, covering everything from the basics to high-level concepts.

On the Web

Canada Business Network, a government information service for businesses and start-up entrepreneurs across Canada, and WorkBC, the provincial government organization that helps employers and employees navigate BC’s labour market, both offer a wealth of relevant online resources for entrepreneurs-turned-managers.

Canada Business Network highlights include a list of questions to ask yourself to see if you are ready to take on employees and a comprehensive handbook that covers your obligations and opportunities when it comes to hiring employees, as well as tools for streamlining human resources administration. Work BC has outstanding information on how to ensure workplace health and safety and how to strengthen your business by hiring from a diverse population.

Classes

Many institutions across BC offer classes, certificate programs, and diplomas in small business management. On EducationPlannerBC, you can search for programs by subject area, program length, and geographic location.
If you don’t have the time or resources to attend to in-person classes, Lynda.com, a subscription-based online learning platform that is accessible through many public libraries, offers a series of courses that cover how to manage people and projects effectively. 

Books

Management is a growing field of study, and as a result there are many great books about management out there. We recommend checking out First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently from Gallup Press and Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent by Sydney Finkelstein - two of our recent #sbalibrary Summer Reading Challenge picks. And of course, your local public or academic library can give you tailored recommendations to meet your specific needs.
