Leadership Training


One day you’re their colleague and the next you’re their boss! Moving directly from co-worker to supervisor can be one of the most difficult transitions in work life. The number-one challenge is switching from doing the job to leading people doing the job. This leadership training program will help you understand your personal style for interacting with others. You will learn skills for communicating and relating to former peers who are now your subordinates so you can handle these changing relationships in a way that's comfortable for everyone. You'll also learn how to motivate and encourage people to do their personal best so you can build a high performance team that resolves conflicts quickly and effectively.
