Management Fundamentals

Research consistently demonstrates that highly engaged employees are instrumental in the health of the team and critical to the performance of an organization. When people experience a meaningful partnership with their manager and their team they are likely to be more productive, be more creative and to feel more engaged.

This two-week program will provide you with a grounding in the core elements that drive effectiveness in leading people & teams and will build skills around the most important people management practices that people leaders need to have to drive great performance.

Together we’ll explore the most important insights and practices that underpin great management and team leadership and identify ways to integrate these into your own personal leadership practice.
