A short message from your facilitator



More about what we'll cover

As leaders in your org, one of the best sources of leverage are your managers. If you help them become better at developing people, they will increase your impact.

This workshop by LifeLabs Learning will give you easy-to-implement hacks to increase your effectiveness, clarify decision criteria, motivate, and deliver difficult messages well. You’ll have a chance to practice what you learned and take home a plan to create a learning culture across your organization.

This is a live, online workshop where you will interact with your People Ops peers over video. That means you'll need a quiet space (e.g. a meeting room) as well as a computer with a camera and a microphone.
