Management Skills 101:  Performance Management and Development


Many talented employees find themselves supervising others, yet few receive sufficient training in the skills needed to succeed in the role.

In this one-day workshop, participants explore the role of manager and acquire practical tools and resources to transform from an individual contributor to a highly regarded leader.

Participants learn how to set organizationally aligned goals and how to mobilize performance; participants also acquire the essentials of effective delegation and a model for delivering objective feedback.

As part of this workshop, participants create their own personal Manager Roadmap and action plan based on real life examples, discussion, and active practice.

  • Write organizationally aligned performance goals
  • Discover what really motivates employees
  • Explain the role and key elements of effective recognition
