The instructor-led, highly interactive course will focus on the skills and tools needed to help front-line and middle-level managers and supervisors understand themselves and become more productive in the workplace by coaching, mentoring and motivating employees.
In this course, participants will become aware of the impact of verbal and non-verbal communication in order to capitalize on strengths and improve upon weaknesses. Participants will examine the communication process and potential for breakdown.
