Participants will learn more about why, what, when and to whom to delegate.

This program is designed to help managers discover their own leadership values and begin to develop a vision for their work that connects to the hopes and aspirations of their team members. Participants will learn the elements of an inspiring vision and techniques for using images, language and passion to enlist others in their journey toward a better future.
The Productive Conflict workshop explores the possibilities of a workplace where the productive power of conflict is harnessed and its destructive power is minimized. Participants will examine their own approaches and reactions to conflict, and learn how to choose appropriate strategies for different conflict situations.
Productive Conflict Part II extends strategies from Productive Conflict Part I to create conflict competent teams that achieve better results. Managers will learn how to recognize common pitfalls and challenges that arise during conflict situations, and use specific techniques to overcome those hurdles.
