Interested in how to be at the top of your game?  Most of us are never taught how to manage.  We are suddenly promoted and thrown into management, trying to learn from those around us and not repeat mistakes we’ve encountered in our own professional lives. Interactive exercises will help illustrate management best practices.  Participants can use this information to create better strategies for self and team management.  Great training for anyone who is a new or existing manager and wants to improve the impact of their management style!
