In business today, managers and supervisors - or team leaders - are the main link between the organization's goals and the people who are responsible for the daily activities that make those goals a reality. Many everyday decisions required within the management role affect profits, productivity, service levels as well as attitudes and morale. Because of the necessary and integral role that these positions play, it is obvious that good managers and supervisors are key to the success of any organization. While the management role is complex and varied, there is much knowledge and many skills that are common to all in management.

This course offers many specifics, all of which fall within three essential elements: Attitude Development,  Behavior Management Skills and Goal Accomplishment. Understanding that "managing" is part skills and knowledge and part attitude, self-confidence and experience, attendees will leave this course better prepared to lead confidently, communicate effectively and manage intentionally.

Who Should Attend: Managers, supervisors or team leaders who are relatively new to leading others, those who would benefit from accelerating their leadership development process, and those who could benefit from a refresher on the latest management best practices.
