Executive and Professional Development

CMTW banner 16-17

The complex diverse working environment of today requires greater flexibility, knowledge and skills than ever before to achieve the results demanded by employers. Modern science has given us greater insight into the motivation of personal behaviour and also challenged the effectiveness of many traditional models of leadership and management.

The Certificate in Managing Today’s Workforce is designed to address these situations, giving the participant new insights, knowledge and skills in managing people to achieve the best results. Through exploring perspectives, heightening understanding, exploring new theories and models and developing practical applications, managers will walk away with a more complete picture of what is required to be a successful leader today.

This program is designed for managers with at least two years experience who are looking to assess the effectiveness of their current skills, further develop their potential and/or update their repertoire/toolkit to achieve better and sustainable results.

In every course, we answer why, what and how to make the changes necessary to reach your full potential. Through assessments, peer learning, and dynamic instruction, participants will develop awareness of their strengths and challenges. Relying on interactive learning principles, participants will engage in group discussion, co-create action plans, and build skills in a collaborative learning environment.
