New Leaders and Managers

We often promote associates to positions they are not trained for, thereby setting them and the company up for failure, or at the very least a painful and extended learning process. Training new Leaders and Managers to identify and address the new issues they will be facing is essential to their success. Training will provide the knowledge, experience will provide the wisdom, and practice will lead to greater leadership and management experiences. This 1-day course is packed full and designed for the newly promoted or future leader in our companies. It is also suitable for junior leaders and managers who have not been formally exposed to management styles and philosophies.
