The Advanced Front Line Leaders Program is the next step for front line leaders in their leadership development as they build upon the learnings of the Leadership Skills for Front Line Leaders program. Nearly half of all new leaders fail – not because of ability or effort, rather because they haven’t been equipped to succeed. They are usually selected from among their peers to lead a group, team or a shift. While they have mastered the technical side of the job, leading people is an entirely different matter.
Participants who have completed the Leadership Skills for Front Line Leaders program have learned communication, conflict resolution, providing feedback and time management skills. The Advanced Front Line Leaders Program builds on those skills and presents new topics such as building a network, presentation skills, understanding the differences in generations, understanding their contributions and impacts on their organization’s bottom line, handling workplace nuisances and much more.
