Effective Management Skills for Today's Workplace
In our 'not-quite-Post-Pandemic' world, managers and supervisors need to approach new workplace challenges with fresh thinking and a steadiness that others can count on. No leader is going to fully succeed utilizing the skill-set they obtained Pre-Pandemic. Understanding that workplace needs have changed, NECC is proud to introduce our new Effective Management Skills for Today’s Workplace 10-week certificate program.
Managing and supervising in today’s workplace will now require:
- deeper empathy,
- well-developed self-awareness, and
- an energy level that brings employees together for a common purpose
Engaging new employees, while re-engaging an existing workforce, and deciding how employee safety and well-being will be re-built for these times are only two of the many opportunities for current and near-future leaders to pioneer.
Classes will cover (but are not limited to) the following topics:
- Increasing your self-awareness
- Deepening and expressing empathy that employees feel and appreciate
- The supervisor is a leader
- Leading the work team
- Delegation and performance feedback
