Essential Management Skills

Build core competencies for managerial success

Delivered online in real time

Program Level: Fundamental

This comprehensive program builds a solid foundation in the soft-skill competencies needed for managerial success. Understand yourself as an effective leader of people. Diagnose typical business situations and determine how best to manage them. Engage in practical exercises that focus on your own day-to-day issues, and come away with tools and techniques you can apply immediately back at work.

The content is specifically designed for individuals who have recently assumed a managerial role and wish to make an effective transition to their new position, or for those who want a refresher in the basics. Experienced managers looking to advance their career will benefit from Advanced Management Skills—an exploration of the hard skills required to lead a department or business.

Online program format

This five-day program is distributed over a two-week period, with live, facilitator-led online sessions delivered in the morning and afternoon. The sessions are highly interactive, enabling you to network with peers, brainstorm ideas, engage in skill-building activities, and receive constructive feedback. You will also have access to self-directed resources (readings, videos, self-assessments etc.) that you can review at any time.
