Can you learn Management and Leadership?

A lot of people think that good managers and leaders are born and not made but in fact the very opposite is true. Good managers and leaders are made when they encounter certain scenarios and when they solve those scenarios in positive ways. Some managers and leaders end up learning by trial and error; but this process can be expedited and improved with the help of proper training and case study evaluation.

The fact is that good management and leadership is what makes a good organization tick, and identifying and nurturing new managers and leaders is essential to the future of a successful organization. Management and leadership training gives individuals new insights into the process and the necessary experiences needed for continued management and leadership growth. Candidates will evaluate and learn from case studies and role playing and in the process gain a greater understanding of how personal behaviors affect specific workplace interactions. They will also gain personal insight from intensive assessment and self-observation, and leave with a greater self-awareness and knowledge of their personal strengths as well as areas that need improvement.

Excellence stems from many factors, and breaking these elements down and focusing on each of them will help candidates grow and develop their career. Proper training can give individuals the critical strategies they need to improve their management and leadership performance and achieve organizational success. In addition to self-evaluation and assessments, one on one sessions help candidates discuss their strengths, areas for development and identify next steps necessary for further development in a private, safe and supportive environment.

Core competencies learned include:

Conflict Management


Developing Others



Interpersonal Skills

Oral Communication and Problem Solving

The Richness of Learning...

President Jones, members of the faculty, assorted notables, proud parents and financially indebted graduates. I come before you on this auspicious day to say something about the degree you have just been awarded. You have been told it is not worth the papyrus it is printed on. I am here to tell you it is worth a fortune. In preparing for this commencement speech, I assembled a file of newspaper stories about the cost of college, the burden of student debt and how much you can expect to earn in your first year after graduation — assuming, of course, that you can even find a job. The numbers are daunting. Unless you are graduating from one of those name-brand elite institutions — Harvard, Yale, etc. — you’re probably not going to make much your first year out. In fact, we now have many examples of community college graduates earning more than those with bachelor’s degrees. In Virginia, the difference can be $20,000 a year.To read more click here.
