The Certified 2030 Manager - Virtual Learning

Why Attend

Several powerful trends are forging a new type of manager on the modern business scene. Working from home, operating in unprecedented crisis mode, dealing with demographic diversity, maneuvering global supply chain challenges, and pursuing ongoing innovations are all powerful challenges managers need to confront and become comfortable working with. This course equips managers with skills they will require throughout this decade and beyond to address these powerful trends and prepare the next generation of leaders to be more flexible, inclusive, responsive, and resilient.

So, are you ready to address these new requirements and learn what actions you need to take to capitalize on the emerging business realities? Are you flexible enough to lead your team members differently and along four vital dimensions? Do you know the corporate changes that will dominate the upcoming 10 to 15 years?
