Why should you attend?

Do you have a hard time saying “no” to your staff? Many people in today’s society fear conflict and criticism. Let’s face it: it can be very difficult to assert yourself when dealing with staff that you are friendly with or with whom you have worked with for a long time. Often times, when dealing with conflicts or problems, it is easier to procrastinate or try to sweep things under the rug than to lose face and cause irritation of others. However, it can be crucial to deal with conflict and problems head on.

This webinar will discourse why, as a leader, one of the most important skills to master for your success in leading people effectively (as well as earning cooperation of individuals around you) is the ability to deal with all types of people and situations in a confident, poised, self-assured manner. The program will teach attendees skills to command attention, be respected by others, and to lead your team effectively.
