Leadership Skills Program (Managers)

Program Overview

In this time of rapid change and aggressive competition, organizations must either be flexible to change or perish. It is no longer enough for a single leader to provide direction; every member of the team must be committed to goals and to developing the ideas and abilities of their team members.

Participants in this hands-on workshop will create a vision that meets the needs of the current ever-changing business environment, set a clear direction for the path forward, discuss ways to develop their people so that they can excel, and learn from the failures and successes of others.

Based on the leadership concepts put forward by Harvard professor John Kotter, participants will think about their own situations in detail, and strive to walk away at the end of the course with a viable action plan in hand.
