BECOMING A LEADER: STRATEGIES & TOOLS FOR NEW & EMERGING LEADERS

 

When employees are promoted to managerial positions based on their performance in their current roles, they may need more support and preparation to lead and manage others effectively. Success in this role requires a critical set of skills, including performance management, motivation, team development, communication, delegation, and priority management. It's important for managers to develop these skills to ensure the productivity of the people they supervise.

This program focuses on equipping managers with the knowledge and tools they need to effectively manage people and increase productivity in their areas of responsibility. Participants will explore basic managerial concepts, discuss common situations and challenges, and learn how to apply specific strategies and tools to successfully manage people.
