It is common for companies to promote outstanding or high performing individuals to supervisory or managerial positions.
The management does this as a form of reward and recognition for the invaluable service that these deserving individuals have rendered. However, little attention is given to the leadership maturity and proficiency needed to perform well in their new jobs.
This seminar seeks to provide guides and tools to help the "new" leaders of your organization gain clarity and direction in the way they lead their people, manage their resources and attain the results expected of them and their teams.
What makes this seminar different?
This seminar is different because it uses a supportive approach that is responsive to the various challenges that each specific participant encounters.
The seminar modules provide practical information and suggestions, with the right combination of theory and skills application to suit those who are already engaged in supervising and managing.
What are this Seminar's objectives?
1. To help new managers and supervisors appreciate the importance of their roles
2. To provide guides that would help unleash their leadership potentials in challenging situations
