Essentials of Leadership for Managers


Leadership is a critical part of helping employees achieve higher performance levels. This interactive workshop helps supervisors and managers build the skills they need to be effective leaders and explore their own leadership potential. The course is built on the book Developing the Leader Within You, which should be brought by each participant to class. Participants will also complete a detailed self-assessment to receive feedback about their own leadership style and its effectiveness in their role of leading others.

Completion of a brief, online assessment prior to the course is required; to ensure timely analysis, we recommend enrolling at least 3-5 days prior to course start date.

  • Identify essential leadership qualities for success
  • Draw from critical leadership behaviors, including setting priorities, creating positive change, solving problems through others, and developing people
