What to Say When™ Mentoring Series
10 leadership training courses that teach managers how to get the most from their teams
Managers need to be able to provide help, assistance and feedback in a wide variety of difficult situations. They need to say the right thing at the right time in order to get optimal performance from their team.
ServiceSkills.com created a series of 10 leadership training courses to teach your managers just that—what to say and how to react in tough managerial situations. These scenario-based courses will give your managerial staff the situational training they need to be successful in their positions.
And, because every course comes with an overview sheet and a quiz, you can monitor your team’s progress and retention every step of the way.
Here’s what each of the 10 courses will cover:
