Course Overview

In these stressful, some would say chaotic, times, there is an increased need for managers and supervisors to meet objectives and requirements of the organization AND maintain the well-being, health and safety of their employees.

It is no secret, employees – at all levels – are concerned about what is going on in the world. Some organizations will emerge stronger and more productive from this crisis; others will falter. The difference in success rates depends on how leaders empathize, engage, motivate, inspire, support and use the talents of their people.

The purpose of this session is to assist participants in understanding that their primary job in any organization is to create value; create value for stakeholders, employees and especially those who are served by the enterprise.
