Managing employees can be challenging. Not only are you responsible for your own performance and results, you must also maximize your employee’s efforts so you can meet established goals.

This course will help you identify and use your natural leadership style to create a more productive and engaging work environment.

You will also learn communication skills, particularly in difficult discussions where conflict may exist.
