Why not make it a lunch ’n learn? Bring your team together for this convenient online training opportunity!
Leaders in the career development sector have diverse educational and professional backgrounds. Some who have come up through the ranks of front-line practitioners bring limited training in management or leadership; others from outside of the sector bring strong leadership competencies but have limited sector-specific knowledge or skills. In an increasing complex context of career development programs and services, leaders need a unique combination of leadership and career-related competencies.
This 4-part webinar series, facilitated by a panel of leaders within the career development sector, is designed to provide emerging and established leaders with an overview of leadership competencies for diverse contexts.For more details about each sections, please click here!
