The transition from star player to team coach is a tremendous leap. All too often new managers are thrown into challenging circumstances with limited support and resources. With the move to virtual environments, managing is more stressful than ever before.
During this program, Dr. Woodward will share the latest research on what makes a successful manager and also share a model used by highly effective managers. In addition, there will discussion on how to facilitate self-insight along with providing simple techniques for developing self-insight, building trust and fostering psychological safety. This program blends rich content with individual exercises and group discussions.
I loved how this IMS program effectively blended an interactive lecture with engaging individual exercises and group discussions. I will be able to use a great deal of this in my workplace.
