LEADERSHIP TRAINING - MODULE 2: THE CLIMB TO TOP PERFORMANCE
Bringing out the best in yourself and others leads to an engaged and effective team focused on organizational goals. Aligning daily work with the big picture ensures that everyone is on the same page and is able to share information that helps everyone do their job better. All employees are able to make meaningful contributions to the best of their ability.

- Giving Constructive Feedback Get information to the right people at the right time, bring problems to the forefront and build strong working relationships that foster ongoing learning and mutual respect.
- Addressing Emotions at Work Discover skills for managing emotions in the workplace, helping to prevent runaway emotions, and remain productive and focused toward cooperative goals.
The program certification includes seventeen (17) individual modules designed to be completed by attending four consecutive, two-day sessions. These sessions are offered once or twice each year (as necessary) over a two-year period. Because the modules need not be taken in sequence, a participant may stop or miss a session if an emergency prevents regular attendance, and re-enter when space in the program is available. The Basic Principles: Building Trust Under Pressure is a pre-requisite for all other modules. This is scheduled prior to some of the modules to allow new participants to begin the program. Subsequent modules may be taken in any sequence.
First timers must complete Basic Principles. Modules 1 - 4 may be taken in any order.
PRESENTATION & MATERIALS
Class size is limited to 20 people to provide maximum opportunity for participants to benefit from the instructor-led multi-media activities. Each participant receives a binder containing workbooks for each skill unit, including observation and planning.
