Just for Managers: Leadership + Supervision Trainings

What distinguishes a good leader from a great one? In my experience, it’s threefold: effective communication; self-reflection; and an emphasis on teamwork.

Join Barbara Williams and I at these Howard CC training sessions to brush up on one, two or all of these skills. 

1. Managers and Conflict:  “Let’s Talk!”

57% of employees report not being given clear directions, and 69% of managers are not comfortable communicating with employees in general.

*learn constructive communication skills

*build and maintain team morale

*learn how to resolve conflicts before they get out of hand

2. Introspective Insights for Better Communication

We can all agree: The best managers listen, motivate, care and support. So how can you become that person?
*become a more self-aware manager

*understand “where you come from”

*learn more about yourself—then use that knowledge to be a better coach

3. Approaches to Dynamic Teamwork

Managers are the most important factor when building successful teams.

*learn the latest research on teamwork

*walk away with new, groundbreaking strategies for optimizing team performance, increasing sales, profitability and productivity

*decrease turnover and absenteeism
