Making the Transition to Management

This course is designed to be taken in its entirety, or to be taken as an individual component.  Making the Transition to Management involves a good deal more than accepting the position and moving to a new office space.  Learning how to think and behave like a successful manager is the overall objective of this course. 
The four modules are as follows:  Delegation and Time Management, Problem Solving Skills, Personal Development, and Strategically Addressing Workplace Issues.  Participants will develop their skills in these areas by participating in interactive training exercises, viewing and critiquing staff developed video lessons, reading assignments, and listening to lectures.

Target Audience/Advance Preparation:  Supervisors, managers, and professionals who want to build and maintain positive workplace relationships.
