You used to be a job developer and now you’ve been promoted to the role of supervisor. Or, maybe you’re new to the field altogether and find yourself managing a staff of 2 or 20. Regardless of how you got here, people are looking at you to lead! In this class you will learn how to transform your employees into a high-performing team.

  • Handling difficult conversations with employees
  • Effectively delegating to your staff in order to promote inclusion
