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
  • Managing personnel issues
  • Creating a climate for motivation and positive work relationship
  • Facilitating innovation and problem solving in a hybrid work setting
  • AND MUCH MORE!

This program is designed for:

  • New Supervisors / Managers
  • Employees who desire a supervisory role
  • Employees new to managing people
  • Team Leaders
  • Project Managers
  • Engineers

If you are looking to enhance your supervisory / managerial skills and advance your career, this program is for you!
