    General Descriptions
    One of the most influential roles within an organization is that of a manager. Managers make decisions every day that affect their entire organization and ensure a commitment to honesty, equality and workplace ethics. They direct the work of organizations' most valuable resources - their people. But who supports the manager? 

    This series of courses outlines the role of an ethical manager in the workplace. It develops the skills to motivate, empower, and grow employees in a culture of respect.  We look at management from a perspective that recognizes WHAT you do is as important as HOW you do it. Reputation counts – yours and your organizations. Join us to develop the skills of ethical management. 

    Session One – Being an Organizational Leader
    In this session, we focus on what it means to be an ethical manager and to have a culture of respect. We examine what practical steps must be undertaken to leave behind the role of individual contribution and to pick up the mantle of manager and leader. Lastly, we look at how to regulate yourself while under stress and to help your employees navigate their emotions under stress to ensure a professional work environment of mutual respect.

    Skill to practice: Letting go of Individual Contributor role and adopting management tasks, keeping control under stressful situations

    Session Two – Building an Exceptional Team
    In this session, we examine team development and the use of feedback to help teams to evolve into self-sustaining, high performing units within your organization. We practice being honest with employees to help them grow and to validate what they are doing well. We identify what motivates people and what incentives them to give their best. 

    Skills to practice: Feedback, coaching and employee engagement 

    Session Three – Setting Vision and Goals
    In this session, we focus on how to ignite employee passion for the work they do and setting clear, actionable goals so employees know what is expected of them and what success looks like.  We’ll discover how to influence teams to perform and discuss how change can affect employee’s focus.

    Skills to practice: Influencing, goal setting, and change management

    Session Four – Managing Team and Work Execution
    In this session, we show respect for the talents and gifts of employees and helping them to use them through practical delegation and empowerment practices. We recognize how to organize our work and the work of our employees to ensure we respect our own boundaries yet meet the needs of our organization.
