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

 
Employees who are deservingly promoted into managerial positions because they do well in their current jobs often need additional support and better preparation if they're to successfully manage and/or lead others. In order to be successful and ensure the productivity of the people they supervise, managers need to develop a critical set of skills related to performance management, motivation, team development, communication, delegation and priority management skills. This session will focus 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.
