1) Leadership Perspectives (2/21/20)
What does it mean to be a leader – to lead others? How is being a leader different than being a manager – and is there even a difference? Is there a right way to lead? And what makes one leader more effective than another – is there a secret formula for leading? This course will cover these and other vital perspectives on leadership, providing a manager with a solid foundation and right perspectives on leadership.
2) Performance Management (3/20/20)
One of the most critical areas of responsibility of a manager is the day-to-day management of an employee’s performance and development. Performance Management is the process a manager follows to create a work environment that enables employees to perform to the best of their abilities. This course will lead managers through the essential steps of the Performance Management Process, providing practical and effective action steps, forms, and checklists a manager can use to manage the performance and development of their employees effectively. This is a must-take course for any manager who wants to set their employees up for success.
3) Leading Change (4/17/20)
Improvement, innovation, and growth in the workplace often require a change of some sort, whether it be to an existing structure, process, procedure, or action. This change in current reality can be hard for many people. Luckily, there are purposeful actions a manager can take to help his or her employees transition effectively through change. This course will equip managers with essential strategies and actions needed to lead the way through smooth transitions and changes at work.
4) Engage & Motivate Others (5/15/20)
The best managers get peak performance from their employees. How do they do it? The best managers know that it’s critical to meet the intellectual and emotional needs of their employees. In meeting those needs, managers create an environment where employees feel passionate about their jobs and perform at peak performance. This course outlines the six basic needs all employees have, providing highly-effective but straightforward actions any manager can take to engage and motivate their employees. Managers leave this course with momentum and a tangible plan of action to make employee engagement a priority and something they can positively influence.
5) Build & Lead an Effective Team (6/19/20)
One of the most important priorities for a manager is the building (and leading) of an effective team. But how does one do that? And what makes a team effective? This course will help managers understand the characteristics of an effective team, allowing them to focus time and energy on critical areas of team development and leadership. Leaders will have the opportunity to evaluate their current team against best-practice characteristics, leaving the course with a concrete action plan and specific action steps they can take to build and lead an effective team.
