Fundamentals in Practical Leadership Series

Skills and Tools for New and Emerging Leaders and Managers 

HOSTED BY The Centre for Organizational Effectiveness

Over the last 20 years at Centre for Organizational Effectiveness has heard from many 
organizations that they’d love to provide some practical skills and tools to support new and emerging leaders on their journey, but they just don’t have the time to mentor every person in depth or pull together a cohesive program. CfOE is looking to support these organizations by doing just that!

  • 1-hour webinars on topics valuable to people in the early stages of their leadership and management journey, who will be able to reflect on and practice the skills we teach
  • Practical tools such as videos, resources and templates
  • The opportunity for any and all leaders to join (registration by an organization allows anyone in the organization to participate in the webinars)
  • Optional certificate stream for those who participate in the full series and complete a reflection on each topic
