General Management Courses

Step up to your management role

Our General Management Program is essential for new and developing managers who wish to learn best practices for success in managing teams and handling on-the-job challenges. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of what makes an effective manager — from building positive relationships to setting performance expectations to coaching and mentoring.

In these flagship courses, you will develop both hard and soft skills to bring out the best in yourself as a manager. You will reflect on your own strengths and weaknesses and open yourself to new possibilities. You will develop your people skills and learn how to inspire and engage others, how to lead teams, how to manage conflict, and how to build, sustain and expand your network.
