Effective Managerial & Supervisory Skills

Course Overview

It is an achievement to become a manager or a supervisor. Most reach this coveted position due to their domain expertise, hours spent in a role and a variety of soft skills that they demonstrate. However, very few are formally coached to assume this responsibility. As a result, many managers spend years in a trial and error mode.


Managers also face an unenviable task of managing not only their own or their team’s performance but also to manage bosses and stakeholders.


This two day course attempts to provide the newly minted and experienced managers with several insights, ideas and techniques to build up their ability as a successful and an effective manager.


This course shall also introduce some concepts of leadership that all managers are required to demonstrate in varying degrees.


This course is equally beneficial for experienced or new managers.
