ONLINE COURSE: From Peer to Manager: Skills for New Managers
Welcome to your career in management. But most important…Welcome to leadership.
Even for the most gifted individuals, the process of becoming a leader is a rigorous and many times an exhausting journey. The rewards, however, can be enormous. I surveyed a group of managers across many disciplines and asked the question, “As a new manager, what do you wish you learned early in your career?” What follows in this course, is a result of the responses, as well as my personal experience coaching and mentoring new managers.
I will begin by asking you to be patient with yourself. You do not develop leadership skills overnight. It takes practice, it takes trying new things, it takes making mistakes. Yes, sometimes you will fail. That is ok. It is ok to acknowledge when something doesn’t work, it is ok to celebrate and build on your successes.
I have broken this course into individual modules. These are small bite sized modules that you can view either one after the other, or one at a time as you drink your morning coffee. Feel free to jump around and view the modules that are of the most importance to you. Take what works, challenge what doesn’t, try new things.
The Chapters include:
- Introduction to Management
- Developing Your Leadership Style
- Leadership Responsibilities
- Leadership Communication
- Team Development
- Your Growth and Development
- Managers Toolkit
I’m excited to join you in this journey. It’s time to think about success. Let’s Get Started.
ONLINE COURSE: Writing Emails That Get Read
This course is for everyone who sends emails in their professional role. Writing emails is second nature for most, but if you are interested in fine tuning your email communication to be more effective in the workplace, this course is for you. Why? Because, it’s time to rethink our email communications.
You might be someone who is just now entering the workforce after graduation. You grew up with technology as a daily part of your life, gaming, texting, Facebooking, Instagramming, and Snapchatting. This is all a normal part of your daily life. So, email, you believe, is just an extension of this activity. Hmmm. Perhaps not. Or perhaps you are a seasoned professional with many years of experience behind you. You remember the time when your mailbox had a weekly delivery from AOL, CompuServe, or similar companies, with discs inviting you to enter that new and mysterious online world. These magic discs brought communication to the world with them, including email communications. The 3-ply business memo was soon to be retired from your daily work life. Or….you might be somewhere in between. No matter where you fall on this scale, I am here to take you on a journey to re-think your email communications.
This course will provide you with the opportunity to evaluate and improve your current email communication style.
