  • This course has reached capacity. Sign up for the certificate series waitlist at the link below, OR consider joining one (or more) of our new Management Accelerators, covering skills and tactics critical for managing individuals, teams, and strategy.


Being strategic involves setting the path for the organization. Moving away from operations and into a strategic role requires spending less time on day-to-day issues and more time looking ahead. Participants in this course will learn how to be more strategic, effectively coach employees to increase performance, and help staff identify and grow into their fullest potential.

  • Distinguish between tactical and strategic ways of thinking.
  • Incorporate coaching into daily contact with employees.
