How to transition from team member to team leader

Course Code: CEPS 1073E
If it were easy to be an effective manager or supervisor, bookstores would have an awful lot of empty shelves. The truth is, it's an acquired skill, something you learn from the experiences of seasoned professionals like Sophie Lemieux and Kathryn Peterson. In their two-day workshop, you'll learn the conceptual and personal abilities you need to influence and lead individual employees and teams. You'll improve your self-awareness, active listening, communication and assertiveness—four vital keys to success. Most of all, you'll leave the workshop with greater enthusiasm and the confidence you need to improve your performance as a supervisor or a manager. Ready for the challenge?
