Do you know how to engage a team?  Do you have a vision that others buy into?  Are you able to help others define and achieve their professional goals?  Can you get your work done without appearing frazzled, fizzled, and overwhelmed?  Skilled supervisors and managers can do all of these things.  They lead, and people follow.

Some were born with a natural ability to inspire and drive people to perform.  However, the vast majority of successful managers have had some help along the way in the form of training or one-on-one coaching.

Whether you’ve found yourself in a new role or you believe you should have had training years ago, our management training courses, seminars, and multi-session programs are designed to improve a host of skills: defining boundaries, setting goals, coaching, counseling, speaking in public, thinking critically and creatively, managing time, building a team, hiring, and planning for the future.

We have developed targeted programs for those new to supervising others and for those who have managed people for decades.  These classes can be delivered as described in the workshop overviews or tailored to address issues specific to your group.

All of our leadership and management training sessions are highly interactive and filled with practical activities.  They are not just a PowerPoint with a script and an opportunity to sit down.  Instead, they follow a model of watch it, try it, reflect on it, and try again. 

Who leads these programs?  Our course facilitators have had decades of experience supervising and managing others.  They are published authors with proven track records.  All are comfortable working with groups of 10 or 10,000.

In addition to our short courses, we offer leadership keynotes and an intensive six-month leadership development program called Lessons in Leadership.  This program is ideal for groups who desire measurable change and who are willing to commit to the process.
