As a manager, the measure of your success is not based on how well you can do the job, it is defined by how motivated, focused, skilled and successful your entire team is. This challenge introduces a wild card into the equation that many managers have never had to deal with before: the people factor. Somehow, you have to become adept at taking a diverse group of people with differing needs, skills, opinions and experience levels, and inspire and equip them to go out and do for you what you used to do on your own. This course will help you do just that.
This workshop enables supervisors and managers to practice and develop skills in communication, conflict management, motivation, delegation and evaluation. These five concepts are developed on a foundation of managers knowing and understanding the employees who work for them. By identifying the behavioral styles of employees, managers can more effectively communicate with, motivate, delegate, manage and evaluate employees.
Both new and experienced managers will benefit from the principles and skills presented in this hands-on workshop. This workshop translates important management and behavioral concepts into practical management steps for improving productivity and job satisfaction for both the manager and the entire team.
Participants will learn to:
Gain a clear understanding of the goals and tools of effective management.

"This class was the best professional training I've had in years! The instructor
was truly excellent. Her casual, personable style made learning and interfacing
with classmates easy. The class was lively with lots of participation. We seldom
got off track. When we did, she skillfully guided the focus back to the concept
being taught. Movement from one concept to another seemed naturally connected."
