They provided insights into how to solve problems within teams and how to work towards creating a high performing team.

“The professors discussed real life scenarios mixed with classroom dialogue to take you back to some very basic concepts. Key point being that a good manager should be an even better coach. Communication and coaching creates those directed activities that encourage and form psychological contracts with your employees. These psychological contracts lead to organizational citizenship. Organizational citizenship creates engaged employees who truly believe that they can make a difference.”
