Our new Communication in Leadership program is designed to provide up-and-coming managers with the skills they need to run their departments more efficiently and improve team performance. Each session runs between 1 hour and 90 minutes. A minimum of six participants is required. While we highly recommend implementing the entire 12 week course, some modules will work as stand-alones. Please schedule a meeting with one of our associates at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may evaluate your specific needs.
