Course Description/Agenda

Growing People Is An Essential Leadership Skill

As a leader, it's not just a good idea to develop your employees - it's expected of you. In fact, developing people so you can produce superior results through those people is the name of the game in leadership.

Sadly, most managers are getting a FAILING grade in this area. Why? They just don't consider it a top priority ... or they have no idea how to go about making it happen.

That's why we've introduced The Manager's Role in Developing People ... to take the time-consuming hassle and confusion out of growing your employees' talents and skills.

This training offers a practical approach to learning the ins and outs of employee development. You'll learn how to develop your "high potentials", your "competent core", and those underachievers who are constantly giving you headaches. We'll show you how to align individual development needs with the ever-changing talent needs of your department and your organization. Plus, you'll get hands-on practice solving tough development challenges through our fun and enlightening simulations and practical application exercises.

It's a day of professional development for you that'll pay for itself time and again throughout your career. Don't miss this powerful learning experience. Enroll in The Manager's Role in Developing People seminar today!
