    Full Series


    Many of us are promoted into supervisory roles based our technical skills, our work ethic, or our past performance, but we never receive training on how to effectively manage and lead others.  Add that to the generational and gender issues of today's workplace, and the role can become even more challenging and stressful. 

    Whether you are a seasoned or aspiring manager, Leveraging & Managing Talent, will give you tools to successfully navigate the more challenging aspects of managing and leading others.  This includes how to give appropriate feedback to employees, as well as motivate and coach them into an engaged and effective team.  This training opportunity is an investment in YOU, but your employees and workplace will benefit greatly! 

    This four-workshop series will be led by Cindy Biggs, CPCC, ACC, president C. Biggs and Associates 

    REGISTER NOW – LIMITED TO 25 SEATS*

    Workshops will be held on the following Thursdays from 8:30-11:30 a.m.:

    September 12 Supervision:  Leading with Your Strengths

    October 3 Motivating Employees: Know What it Takes

    October 24 Coaching:  The Way to an Excellent Staff

    November 14 Feedback:  The Value of On-Going Communication

    Self Advocacy by Cathy Posner: October 23

    Getting promoted is intentional. You can cultivate "executive presence" but what do you do once you have it? How are executive presence and leadership related? How can you build your professional "brand" and credibility in your work environment, making you the obvious choice for a promotion? This workshop will help you create your talking points for a promotion, detail the strategy you need to position yourself for a promotion, and help you craft a road map to get there.  Cathy Posner is the owner of Transition Consulting and Coaching.


    Time: 8:00- 11:00 am *8:30am start 

    Location: Sikich, LLP, 274 White Pond Dr., Akron
