The Benefits

Knowing how busy new managers are, the benefit of this course is that
participants can participate from their desks for 1 hour during each of
the three weeks the course is scheduled, with a week off in between

Who Should Participate?

This course is designed for those who have recently moved into a
managerial position or will be during the next 3-6 months, who want a
few key strategies for starting off and staying on the right track. All

time allows for out-of-the-office training.

* Communicating: in all directions, clearly and succinctly
