Course Overview

Management is harder than it seems. You have to understand people — their wants, their needs, their professional aspirations … and you have to know how to get results. It’s a tricky balancing act. One that requires strong communication skills, profound knowledge of human behavior, and a deep understanding of how your business operates.

This course utilizes applied activities like case studies, self-assessment questionnaires, observational exercises, and reflection worksheets to give you the skills you need to manage conflict, keep things running smoothly, and lead with authority (and empathy).
