PCC's Continuing Education programming offers professional development workshops in addition to its long term certification programming. This Fall, PCC Professional Development & Training offers 4-8 hour courses in communication, leadership, delegating, resolving conflict, supervision and project management.
Oct. 3 - Powerful Communication Skills
This condensed workshop provides managers with an overview of the impact communication skills have on other people. Managers will explore how improving these skills make it easier to get along at work, in life, and provides an orientation to the same tools front-line staff and supervisors use. Register here.
Oct. 10 - How to Lead Without Power
Change can be difficult. It can be more challenging when charged with implemeting a change without holding a formal position of power. This training was developed to support individual contributors who find themselves supporting colleagues and co-workers on critical work but hold no influence or power as perhaps a manager would. Concrete steps can be taken to make changes more palatable: build relationships, understand reasons for hesitation, and communicate a strong case. In this workshop, participants will identify strategies and techniques to be even more influential and effective in achieving collective goals. Register here.
