Building High Performing Teams: The Essentials

This workshop is intended to introduce managers to the critical success factors for building high-performing teams, including competencies and processes essential to achieving group goals.

Coaching for Excellence

The test of a good coaching session is that the person you’re coaching leaves it both more able and more confident” (Being the Boss, p. 203). This program will help supervisors enhance their coaching skills so they leave the session both more able and more confident.


Have you ever caught yourself saying one of the following when considering delegating a task:  “It will be faster if I do it myself… I’m not sure this will get done correctly if I don’t do it myself… I really like doing this, so I’ll do it myself?”  If so, this workshop is for you. Participants will learn more about why, what, when and to whom to delegate.

Guiding Change and Transition

The ability to manage constant change is essential for all of us. Supervisors have the added challenge of helping their employees navigate change in the workplace. Guiding Change & Transition will help supervisors understand their own reactions to change and transition and learn how to guide their employees through the changes and transitions they share.

Guiding Students at Work

Work study and co-op are parts of the academic experience for many Drexel students.  Balancing work and school can be difficult.  For students, this can be a daunting task and can have a direct impact on their overall student experience.  This workshop is geared toward’s helping supervisors better understand the student worker and what they can do to help make the student work experience a positive and productive one for everyone involved.

Inspire a Shared Vision

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.

Productive Conflict Part I

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

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.

Leading with Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence can be described as the ability to understand your own emotions and the impact they have on you and those around you, as well as the ability to understand the emotions of others and use that understanding to build relationships. While technical capability and conventional intelligence are critical components of management, without emotional intelligence to support them, these may not be sufficient to ensure success. This workshop will use a blended learning approach to support participants in understanding the fundamental concepts underlying emotional intelligence, assessing their own levels of emotional intelligence, and planning specific actions for developing attributes of emotional intelligence in themselves.

Managing Performance Issues

The purpose of the program is to ensure that Drexel University managers know how to correctly identify and address employee performance issues through the University’s Performance Improvement Process, so that they are able to use their time appropriately and productively to respond to these issues.

Legal Interviewing

Have you ever seen news of a lawsuit that is a result of unlawful interviewing or hiring practices? All hiring managers need to know how to avoid these consequences. This session is intended for anyone involved in the interviewing and hiring process. The session focuses on the laws relevant to interviewing, the consequences of illegal interviewing, and ways to keep interviews legal. An overview of the hiring process and tips for each stage of the interview process are also provided.
