  Fierce Communication: Conversations That Achieve Results
Crafting clear communication in difficult situations is both a skill and an art. Supervisors and managers need the communication skills to create open, clear communication that results in a clear understanding of work tasks and priorities, individual performance and joint goals. They need to sort facts from opinions, ask difficult questions, and open lines of communication. Participants will learn to: develop the ability to focus on results, not activities; practice direct communication without skirting issues; explore techniques for setting priorities and learn ways to effectively confront performance issues.

  Managing Smarter: Coaching to Make a Difference

This workshop will help you transition to a style that brings the best out of each employee. Spend two days practicing new skills to coach your staff to increased responsibility and effectiveness.
For specific course objectives please contact course administrator.
