Below are a few sample courses:
Unlocking Your Leadership Potential: This two-week virtual course offered through eCornell allows participants to create a leadership development plan designed to guide their career development. The course is based on an online 360-degree assessment, in which ten of your colleagues assess your leadership skills prior to your taking the course. You will use this feedback as a basis to create your personal leadership plan.
Personal Empowerment - Taking Initiative: This half-day workshop offered in a traditional classroom setting at Bristol-Myers Squibb helps employees see that they can and should look for improvement opportunities. Participants will learn to take responsibility for their own success in multiple aspects of work life.
Manager Development: This three-day program prepares new managers to transition to a leadership role using experiential activities, practice and self-reflection. At the end of the course the new manager will demonstrate self-awareness and interpersonal skills, prioritize work, assign resources and delegate. In addition, the new manager will know how to energize others and retain key talent, including providing ongoing and appropriate feedback and coaching.
Coaching for High Performance: This one-day workshop provides an overview of methods and skills to help managers in coaching a direct report on an ongoing basis. Participants will learn to communicate company work objectives to their team and to work with each team member to optimize performance.
Everyday Business Etiquette: As middle management and the concept of seniority are being replaced by a flat organizational structure, the need for appropriate behavior is especially crucial—particularly if you are looking to advance your career. Learn the best ways to address your peers and superiors, and how to conduct yourself with poise and confidence.
Working as a Team: Participants learn to commit to the success of the entire team, not simply their own success. This course highlights the personal, interpersonal and organizational advantages of working together, whether in teams or work groups across the organization.
Additional courses include instruction on: communication skills, time management, team building, desktop computer applications and giving effective presentations.
