Executive and Professional Development
Because there is a fine and sometimes confusing line between leadership, management, supervision, innovation and engagement, this year we’ve decided to put them all in one place. These topics are closely related and deciding where to start can be difficult. We’ve divided them into introductory or foundational programs and more advanced ones with a final section on management topics. We hope this makes it easier for you.
