People are promoted because they're good at their jobs, not necessarily because they are good leaders. Being in a leadership position is a very different job, for which most are not trained. This workshop dispels myths associated with effective leadership and provides common sense approaches. Participants will: learn what works and what doesn't; assess and re-think commonly held beliefs about effective leadership; learn ways to enhance communication and increase motivation; leave with immediately applicable skills that they can incorporate into their management and supervisory styles. Time will be allotted for how best to share potential changes with employees and colleagues. In keeping with the topic, the session will be both didactic and experiential.
This is part of the Leadership & Management and Supervisory Skills Certificate Programs, but you do not need to enroll in the programs to take this workshop.
