Managing effectively includes developing, teaching and coaching staff. As in parenting, the goal is to develop autonomous, productive adults. Life and work intersect. Professionals often find their parenting and people skills overlapping – with mixed results. This webinar will focus on the similarities between commonly accepted positive parenting techniques and management best practices. This webinar will explore how this overlap can enhance – or complicate – managing adults, and present strategies for getting the balance right.
