Foundational Leadership Series with eLearning Cohort The role of the manager in today’s uncertain and quickly changing workplace has shifted dramatically. They need to do more to meet the needs and expectations of their talented, independent and, in many cases, remote workforce. They must serve as coach and mentor, be accessible and remain communicative. Their responsibilities are larger than assuring the work is performed; they have to ensure that workers are content as well. The level of responsibility and accountability placed on managers is greater today than it has ever been which is why your managers need training and support now more than ever.  Our Foundational and Advanced Leadership Series will support your managers with meeting these demands.  Through our blended learning approach, participants learn the critical management skills they need to succeed.  The skills are first introduced in our instructor-led workshops and then supplemented through the eLearning courses.  In the new group coaching sessions that have been added to the series, participants are given the opportunity to reflect upon what they’ve learned to date, discuss what they’ve been able to apply and explore any roadblocks.  This blended approach includes all the elements necessary for learning and applying the new and necessary skills. Managers, supervisors and team leads will have a chance to explore six critical topics for their leadership development. Click on the content tab above  for a description of each course in the series. MEA's training format, "Cohort Learning," is when a group of attendees start and finish an entire training series together.
