Virtual Seminar: Managing the Work of Your Direct Reports

Managing the Work of Your Direct Reports

Date: Jan 18, 2022 | Time: 1:00 pm EST | Length: 3 hours


For organizations to achieve their goals, managers must be able to create a work environment that helps employees succeed to the best of their abilities. That means communicating expectations clearly, collaborating with employees to identify goals, and helping employees develop their skills and abilities.

Managing employees’ performance effectively ensures that the right work gets done in the right way, reduces turnover and lost workdays, increases productivity, improves morale, commitment, and motivation, and reduces problems that can ripple through the organization.

Learning to manage employees’ performance effectively also benefits you. An increased ability to help your employees succeed makes you more valuable to your organization and helps you achieve your unit, department, or division goals. It also improves your career prospects by providing you with an essential management skill.

This instructor-led course will provide you with the tools you need to manage the work of your reports. This three hour-program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
