My Time to Lead Series (New)

Making the transition to leader is not easy and it is certainly not natural.  Yet most companies invest little to nothing preparing new leaders for their new role.  This often results in poor morale and higher turnover since many people just replicate what they have seen in the past.  This leadership "gap" is prevalent in most companies.  Our new and updated leadership series prepares leaders for this new role.  Our 3-day leadership series (non-consecutive days) includes an 86 page work book and a copy of “Listen Up Leader”.   We cover leadership essentials such as:

  • Learn the difference between communication and effective communication
  • Differentiate between accountability and blame
  • Set goals to communicate accountability as a supervisor
  • Recognize the essential nature of trust
  • Create an environment that promotes trust in the workplace
  • And much more…
