Managing Skills for Non-Managers – Level 1 (P856)

How to Lead People That Don't Report To You

Course dates listed will be delivered as live, instructor-led sessions online. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER for the May session.

Learn how to inspire, influence and motivate people to accomplish important goals – when you have no formal direct reporting authority over them. Managing people when they don’t report to you can be tough. How do you deliver feedback? How do you hold people accountable? How do you keep them on track? How do you arrive at consensus? How do you mediate conflict? In this highly interactive and practical workshop, you’ll get the skills and knowledge you need to help work colleagues perform at their best.

This is a one-day workshop in Ottawa.

Note: there is also a one-day follow-up course, called Managing Skills for Non-Managers – Level 2.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
