Western Continuing Studies

For the first time in history, there are four distinct generations working together in the workplace.

These employees work together but have very different expectations and views.

While these differences may create misunderstandings and stereotypes, learning to leverage age diversity can be a strategic advantage in your organization. 

Leading Across Generations

This course will help you to appreciate the differences between generations and develop the skills needed to be an effective leader across generations.

Are you the unofficial project manager in your office?

Does this sound familiar? You have created a schedule, everybody is busy working on the tasks that you assigned and you assume everything is going as planned.

 

No project goes as planned. There are problems, and you should start looking for them now rather than later. The longer you wait to find problems, the worse the problems get.

Project Management Essentials

Our Three Day Workshops will provide you with a practical overview of project management and will give you the essential skills, tools and terminology to deliver projects on time and on budget.
