Managing to Lead: Advanced Skills for Proven Managers - Professional Development Workshop 

“Hey, you are unbelievable at getting stuff done! What a machine! Now how about you stop doing things yourself and get a bunch of other people to do it instead?” Sound familiar? That’s the extent of the training most mid-level managers receive. Stars get promoted, and off they go!


Join us for our Professional Development Class for Mid-Level Managers.  

This practical workshop helps mid-level managers leverage current strengths and add new tools to develop high-functioning teams.  

The class is limited to 30 participants and is shaped to target our field. 

Registration and Payment Due by Wednesday, February 8, 2017.  Refunds ONLY available if there is a waiting list.

3.5 Professional Development Credits/ Non HSW 

Participants leave this session with the ability to: 

    • Uphold high standards and push a team to greatness through advanced goal-setting
    • Deliver effective feedback and understand when to offer direction vs. support
    • Understand and adjust to different communication styles to manage team dynamics
    • Delegate effectively and schedule routine check points without micromanaging
    • Recognize stellar performance with responsibility, autonomy, flexibility, and visibility


Class will be led by Buddy Bush of JB Training Solutions
