Management Skills Development Series

Three competencies lie at the core of the most effective middle and senior managers. Such managers have developed mastery in Communicating, Performance Management and Leadership. In response to the gaps most identified by direct reports and Learning and Development managers, Knowledge Works Consulting has created the Management Skills Development Series.

This programs seeks to develop the competencies of Communication, Performance Management & Leadership in a short and powerfully interactive way that suites the busy schedule on middle and senior managers. The key skills of each competency are developed through 4 interactive webinars delivered around modules from the award winning online program, the Harvard Managementor. The Webinars create the space for training, collaborative learning and successful on-the-job execution. Each module covers a pre and post assessment, core concepts, executive insights, audio downloads, steps, tips, tools and interactive exercises in the skill area. Each program in the series ends with the participant completing an on-the-job project from a module of their choice after which a certificate of completion is presented.
