Why Should You Attend?

By attending, you will take advantage of a great opportunity to advance as a manager to the next level!

Too often, we focus on getting things done and results and miss working on our self-development. Let's face it: this is how we get paid yet this is also how we keep falling behind when it comes to our careers. It's time to get ahead! Don't miss an opportunity to advance as a manager again!

We'll take you through peer discussions addressing leading and managing, integrating finance and quality, managing your time effectively, managing performance and managing up.

Join us as we help you report back to your manager that "I'm ready to take the next step in advancing my management career!"

By attending, you will understand how to even more effectively:
  • Lead and manage
  • Integrate finance and quality in your organization
  • Manage your time, including prioritizing
  • Manage performance
  • Understand behavioral styles, so you can manage more effectively
  • Handle performance conversations, especially difficult conversations
  • Coach with purpose and focus
  • Manage to Action Plans, both by your team members and yourself

Are you concerned about getting ahead, taking the next step in your management career, yet you never seem to have the time?

Would it make a difference if you could coach more effectively with purpose and focus?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then come laugh, listen and learn as Chris DeVany leads us all through these important topics, key questions and answers we all need to be able to address effectively to improve our team members' and team's performance, all of which helps us manage even more affectively and rise up the corporate ladder!
