Seminar Overview

    Track One: Becoming a More Effective Manager and Leader

  • Session 1: From First-Time Manager to Seasoned Professional
    • This session will give you an overview of basic management skills and help you identify and overcome common problems. You'll leave with the knowledge you need to maximize your performance and the performance of people you manage.
  • Session 2: Managing Multiple Projects and Priorities
    • How do you decide which task to tackle first when they're all "urgent"? How do you decide what's really urgent and what's just important? How do you keep tabs on several projects at once without losing your cool? In this session, you'll learn ways to set priorities and manage tasks more efficiently.
  • Session 3: Powerful Communication Skills
    • Communication is more than what you say — it's how you say it. Clear communication is among the most important tools of effective management. This session will give you the keys to successful communication, so you can get your position and ideas across.
  • Session 4: Making the Transition from Manager to Leader
    • There's a world of difference between managing and leading. This session will show you how to draw on every inner resource you have, and become the kind of leader who inspires others to perform at peak capacity.

  • Track Two: Overcoming Management and Supervisory Challenges

  • Session 1: Overcoming Negativity and Attitude Problems in the Workplace
    • Negativity and bad attitudes constitute one of the most difficult challenges a manager or supervisor will ever face. This session will show you how to identify the causes of negativity and attitude problems, help you develop a strategy for addressing them, and reveal ways to create a work environment that encourages cooperation and harmony.
  • Session 2: Using Criticism and Discipline to Turn Around Problem Employees
    • The ability to criticize or discipline employees without breaking their spirit is among the most important skills a manager must develop. Learn how to avoid making others defensive so that your message gets through, what should happen if the problem doesn't go away, and how you can turn a negative situation into a positive experience for the employee and for you.
  • Session 3: How to Handle Anger and Emotion in the Workplace
    • Learn how to manage emotions — yours and others'. You'll leave with tools to help you react appropriately when the anger is directed at you, and you'll be able to defuse potentially explosive situations.
  • Session 4: Managing Through Change
    • Change is constant — that's a given. How to be an effective manager or supervisor in the midst of change is not. This session will show you what steps to take when change threatens jobs and how to communicate change and position it positively.
