Individual Contributor to Leader Workshop

Too often, individuals are promoted to supervisory, or management roles based on
technical experience without an investment in developing their management skills.
This one-day seminar supports the transition from an individual contributor to a
manager and provides skills to enhance communication, provide feedback, delegate
tasks and prioritize responsibilities on a larger scale.
