Our classes are all being run virtually right now. We look forward to the day we can be face to face again.

Powerful Lessons in Six Management Training Sessions

Confidence Management

In SESSION 1, you will learn how to assess your employee’s job task readiness and intervene appropriately.

Objective: Teach managers how to assess how “ready” their employees are to perform their assigned tasks, and how to employ the most effective management style to get the best results and highest engagement.

Emotional Intelligence

In SESSION 2, you’ll learn about the concept of emotional intelligence quotient (EQ), the quality that makes everyone, but especially managers, better at working with other humans. EQ accounts for 70 percent of managerial success and is a higher predictor of success than IQ.

Objective: Teach managers what EQ is, why it matters, how to assess their own EQ and techniques for increasing their scores over time.

Skillful Conversations

Strong communication skills are paramount to success. Difficult conversations are part of every manager’s day. In SESSION 3 we teach you how to prepare for meetings and have tactful and dignified conversations.

Objective: Show managers how to have difficult conversations in a way that is productive and enhances, rather than harms, the relationship and increases the level of understanding.

Goals, Gaps, and Guidance

How to help employees grow and what to do if things are falling apart and get really difficult. In SESSION 4, we help you understand what needs to happen to help employees grow or how to let them go.

Objective: Teach managers how to set expectations with their employees, create checkpoints and coach employees to reach their highest potential, as well as what to do if things are NOT going well and alternative interventions are needed.

Hiring Great People Who Last

Discovering how to solve problems as a manager is important, but learning the best practices for hiring the right people helps keep problems from arising in the first place. In SESSION 5, we teach you how to find, interview and hire the best people.

Objective: Teach managers how to hire people who are a great fit for the position and guide leaders in on how to ask good questions and employ other measures to assess if an applicant is the right addition to the team.

Reality: Action and Life

Integrating effective management practices into your company will help make you more successful. In SESSION 6, we pull all the material together to help you put it into action.

Objective: Provide a comprehensive review of the material and best practices to help participants immediately address their companies’ greatest needs.

What Our Participants Say About Our Management Training Program

Benefits of Using Turning the Corner - Saves Time: Reviewing lots of resumes, thoroughly checking references and backgrounds, interviewing, and follow up, even if the candidate isn’t the right match, takes a lot of time, especially to do it well. Relieves Anxiety: It’s hard to tell people they didn’t get the job, especially when you’ve spent time interviewing and getting to know them. Greater Pool to Hire From: Turning the Corner has a wide range of resources to find great candidates. Make Better Hiring Decisions: No more feeling stressed to make a decision sometimes just because you know you don’t have time to do more interviews. Added Expert Insight to help you make the right choice: Having to make the decision solely on your own without another informed opinion can be stressful and overwhelming. We first engaged Turning the Corner, LLC in 2013 to help us find a Controller. After the successful completion of that project, we hired Kendra and her team as the outsourced provider for our human resource functions. Engaged services have included staffing, annual performance evaluation, onboarding of new employees, termination and outplacement services, and benefits evaluation. They also helped us construct, review and distribute our employee manual earlier in 2015. Turning the Corner has become an essential and trusted partner for our small business. I highly recommend Kendra and the team at Turning the Corner, LLC for any human resource need.

"I have worked with many other organizations before as an HR professional in my field for 13 years, and Turning the Corner offers excellence beyond any services I have ever received. They understand what it means to run a smooth organization, and most importantly understand the value and importance that the HR function has. Recently I worked with them on a project for my organization (Camp Bow Wow) and working with them has increased my ability to strive for excellence in my HR department. As a solo HR individual, having an organization like Turning the Corner allows me to think through strategic decisions, and help with projects as I need them. I can't thank them enough for their support, and I can't wait to continue our relationship into the future!"
