It is often said that too many businesses are overmanaged and underled, which is not to say that managing is bad; rather, it implies that managers often get bogged down in the daily process of managing and neglect the fine art of leading.


What is the difference between leading and managing? How can you make room for both of these critical functions in your role with your team to ensure that you will all achieve the very best and most productive results? What does leadership look like – or what could it look like – at your job every day?


This program was designed  to  create a powerful, three-day Effective Leadership Skills corporate leadership training workshop to equip you with the strategies and techniques to become a highly successful leader as well as an exceptional manager.
