Emerging Leadership Essentials

The Emerging Leadership Essentials course unlocks personal leadership potential for new managers in the workplace. This two-day program will explore decision-making, problem-solving, and conflict management techniques through a leadership development lens.

Quinlan faculty will guide participants through personality testing (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument) and present leadership techniques based on the results. Informative lectures followed by interactive scenarios will allow participants to put these new, personalized methods in action. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of their leadership style, along with the skills to effectively and confidently manage their workforce.

As a bonus, you'll complete a series of assessments that will provide insight on your leadership and conflict management styles and you'll meet one-on-one with an executive coach who will help you interpret your assessment results.

This program is designed for new managers in the workforce or managers with less than five years of experience.
