Effective Management Skills

Independent Contractors and Businesses Association
Everyone agrees that the most important asset of any organization is the human asset.  Thus, the all-important question becomes - How much-untapped potential, energy, commitment, and creativity currently exists within your organization, team or department?  What would it mean to your culture and bottom-line if you could learn to unleash just 10% more of the latent human potential?
This course is for all managers, supervisors, team leaders or anyone who is responsible for achieving results through people and who want to bring the best out in people.
Participants will deepen their understanding of motivation, engagement, delegation/empowerment, and practical feedback skills in this interactive (NO role plays), high energy and thought-provoking seminar.
