Supervisor Skills 2.0 –  Sustained Leadership Program (CEU Credits: 1.5)


Good leadership is not just characterized by the ability to motivate a group toward a common goal—it’s the ability to cross over from being someone employees must follow to someone they want to follow. The Center’s 18-hour Supervisor Skills 2.0 course will further equip participants with the knowledge and skills needed to become effective leaders. The participants in this interactive course will be acquainted with additional leadership skills necessary to relate to subordinates, peers and their managers in a productive and efficient manner.
