Free Webinar: UnCommon Sense
Wednesday, July 22, 2015
2pm – 3pm EDT
You may be a great accountant. That doesn’t mean you’ll be a great manager of accountants. And yet, that’s the system the business world was built upon. Basically, if you were good at what you did, you were promoted to something you weren’t good at doing. And we wonder why we developed so many workplace challenges?
In this light-hearted, but tool-packed webinar, we’ll look at the skills managers really need, we’ll laugh at the ways we’ve been developing managers by eliminating their common sense, and we’ll discover real world ways to develop skills both inside and outside of a classroom environment.
Humorist, award-winning author, and business/governmental consultant Christee Gabour Atwood will draw on decades of consulting and training projects to give you samples of best practices that go beyond buzzwords and promote your managers to the level of “UnCommon Sense” — because common sense isn’t so common anymore…
Participants Will Learn:
- The shifting sets of challenges facing today’s managers
- Tools and techniques to identify developmental needs
- UnCommon Sense Principles for effective management
- How to create ongoing learning opportunities for managers and management candidates
Who Should Attend:
- Human Resource Professionals
- Organizational Development Professionals
