Management and leadership are two entirely different things. Many people function as supervisors without exhibiting the traits that position them as leaders with their staff members and peers within their organizations. Leadership is an intangible quality, yet it is key component of professional success.


What is it that separates leaders from managers? It's a fact that the most effective supervisors are viewed as leaders by their subordinates and that the quality of a company’s leadership impacts its potential for strategic growth and long-term success. Whether you’re a small business owner, an executive, a supervisor, or a human resources professional, if you want to learn leadership and management skills and find out how to reach your potential as a manager, this webinar is for you.
