Leading Others is required for all new supervisors. This course fulfills Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 357-34-055 that requires new supervisors to attend management training within their first six months of assignment. You will learn tips, tools and techniques that you can use immediately. The Leading Others course focuses on the mindset, interpersonal skills, and technical knowledge it takes to successfully lead others in the public sector.

Leading Others combines self-reflection, e-Learning, classroom instruction, cohort and small group work, and experiential learning. In this course we will explore how to motivate staff, manage risk, and develop effective teams to meet your organization’s objectives. You will learn to communicate better, manage conflict, and help those you supervise to navigate change effectively.
