Management / Leadership Development Program


Training Managers How to Lead People and Create High-Performance Work Climates and Foster Employee Engagement


This onsite Leadership and Management Development Program provides a complete curriculum to train managers and supervisors in the skills required to lead and manage people. This training is customized and designed to develop four critical skills for management and supervisory success. 

The Four Skills for Management Success:

  • Leadership skills
  • Communication skills
  • Performance management skills 
  • Decision making and planning skills



Developing effective leadership and management skills creates a competitive advantage for your organization. Unfortunately, these skills do not come easily for most people. Most supervisors are promoted to their position – not because of their management skills – but because of their ability to do the tasks assigned. 
Training these skills is critical to their success.
Additional and supplemental management training can be added to create a complete curriculum for all your managers and supervisors. (These additional programs 
are listed at the bottom of this page.)



Who Should Attend

This curriculum is intended for supervisors and managers wanting to develop and enhance their core competencies in the skills of professional management. This course is designed to be given over four days, which can be continuous or spread over time. Optional “next step” topics are shown at the end of this outline. Using the tools of strong leadership, effective communication, performance management and organizational development, the attendees will maximize their own potential while achieving the goals of the organization.



Training Benefits

  • For newly appointed supervisors and managers: the opportunity to become equipped with the tools necessary for success in their new role.
  • For the experienced supervisors and managers: the opportunity to revisit the building blocks of management excellence while focusing on the specific challenges of their present situation.
  • For the employer: the opportunity to have a professionally developed, custom designed, targeted learning curriculum for its employees and industry without high cost or adding to overhead.
