Role of the Manager
Managers hold a critical role in every organization, with the ability to influence others and lead change. They also come with the hefty weight of making hiring decisions, adapting to circumstances, pressure to perform, and poor communication.

The Management Essentials Program will provide you with the tools and skills to manage the dynamic daily challenges of leading others while building a team that is positive, forward-focused, and determined to deliver strong results.
The inherent ideology to any organization is that we can do more as a group working together than we can individually.

This course aims to provide you with better conflict resolution skills, enhanced team performance and better adaptability and resilience within your team.
