With the great resignation upon us, the role of a manager today has never been more crucial to the success of an organization. According to a 2021 McKinsey & Company report, the top reason employees cited for quitting was that they didn’t feel valued by their organizations or managers.

The skills that made leaders effective prior to Covid are no longer sufficient for the current world of work. Managers are now facing unprecedented challenges as they navigate leading in remote and hybrid work environments, all while attempting to build resilience within themselves and their teams. Managers who are able to take a relational approach to cultivating their employees’ development will help their teams thrive.

This course will provide managers with the knowledge and tools they need to do just that. Specifically, we will cover how to foster psychological safety, give and receive feedback, build positive relationships, lead by coaching, and facilitate career conversations.

Throughout the course, you will learn through class discussion, breakout exercises, and individual assignments to help you grow your leadership toolkit. You will be paired with another classmate to serve as peer coaching partners, deepening your learning and reflection outside of class. You will come away from this course with a clear understanding of how to effectively lead with empathy and compassion, cultivating a thriving team.
