Being a leader is complex; a leader is typically responsible for aligning department and organizational goals, managing their own interpersonal relationships with others, dealing with people dynamics and/or conflict on the team, communicating and motivating others. This is all in addition to their deliverables and functional responsibilities. This 2-hour online workshop addresses these challenges with best practices, insights and tools to be successful in a leadership role.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the differences between a technical and leadership role
- Adapt their leadership style to match the individuals they are leading
- Provide both positive and corrective feedback to others in a motivating way
This seminar will be held over Zoom.
