What you will learn:
Now more than ever, managers are responsible for making sure their teams are happy, fulfilled, engaged with their work, and able to manage the stresses coming from multiple angles. But, great managers are made, not born. And management skills can be learned from the very first day of your very first job. In this workshop, we discuss the foundational management skills employees needed to be a great manager and how employees can start building these skills immediately regardless of whether they are a manager. Through interactive exercises and discussion questions, as well as supporting templates, participants will practice these skills during the workshop.
