Why Should You Attend:

Many managers lack fundamental training in managing people. Every manager messes up at some point. What really matters is whether he or she responds with grace and humility, is quickly able to formulate and enact a recovery plan and learns from the mistakes - things that not everyone does.

This webinar will help you recognize and learn how to avoid the biggest and most common mistakes important for anyone in a managerial position. Managers and supervisors who have recently been promoted, those taking on new responsibilities, those with little or no formal training - even seasoned professionals need a refresher every now and then- will benefit from the ideas, techniques and tools that are offered in this session.

You will learn how to deliver constructive feedback and what tips and tools can be used for engaging, motivating and building high performance teams.
