People are hard, so why are they called “soft skills”? Much like technical skills, there is both science and art, theory and experience, to becoming good at leading, managing, coaching, mentoring & developing people. In this workshop, we’ll look at some of that theory, share experiences and boost your ability to develop yourself and others.

Topics covered

  • The science behind motivation
  • Characteristics of high performing teams
  • Coaching & mentoring
  • Managing & leading
  • Developing yourself & others
  • Giving & receiving feedback
  • AMA on gnarly situations

Prerequisites

No prior experience leading, managing or developing people is required, but those who are going to get to use such skills in the near future will probably get the most out of this workshop.

Format of the course

No laptop needed.
