Course Description

Any leader is only as good as the people they lead, and it is the very rare leader whose team is comprised only of skilled experts at every position. For everyone else, employee development is key for effective leadership. Individual and team development must be a priority for you and your organization when seeking a competitive edge in the marketplace.  

In this course, you'll learn how to use motivational factors and actions for developing your team.
