Functional Manager Program

A performance management program for experienced managers.

Effective leadership is more than just knowing fundamental concepts of management. It's about successfully applying those concepts in the workplace, with the employees being supervised. The Functional Manager program, through a series of experiential workshop sessions, allows participants to explore and practice key areas of management. These areas build on an educational experience designed to develop competencies beyond the typical supervisory skill set. After completing the program, participants should be able to apply new management knowledge to current industry challenges, in addition to issues such as 'doing more with less" and "sharing best practices."

Participants in the Functional Manager Program will learn to:

  • Lead change in an organization
  • Develop and lead teams
  • Manage time and priorities more effectively
  • Help employees grow
  • Manage a diverse workforce
  • Resolve interpersonal conflicts
