In-depth skills practice using the Situational Leadership® II model combined with interactive activities takes you through the paces of motivation, delegation, coaching, communication, performance management, and leadership. You will be able to improve on critical areas, play to your strengths, and get the best results from every member of your team.

Management Skills fot New Manager Training Course provides an introduction to Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership® II – a model for developing people and a way for leaders to help their employees become self-reliant achievers. Management must adapt to the skills and commitment of the people they want to influence to be truly effective in their leadership. With some people, managers have to provide a great deal of direction. With others, encouragement and appreciation trigger the best results. Still, others deliver their best when allowed to take the ball and run with it. Situational Leadership® II helps managers become more flexible and responsive to their employees’ needs.
