Successfully Managing Your Employees: Stepping In to Step Up Performance

Management is both an art and a science. Bearing this in mind, this seminar will expose you to specific scenarios and management practices and allow you to examine concrete solutions that are:

  • Manager-specific
  • Suited to a given situation
  • Targeted to obtain the desired outcomes.

You will be encouraged to explore your own management style and subjectivity, to leverage your leadership potential and to cultivate your management talents. Drawing inspiration from your fellow participants’ experiences and points of view, you will determine which approaches are the best fit for your objectives and your organizational culture in order to boost the engagement of your staff members and get your business one step closer to its ultimate purpose.
