Upcoming sessions on leadership, communication

Two-part courses will be offered by Alexandria Technical and Community College called “You’re only a leader if others follow” and “Communication and conflict.”

These sessions are being offered with the goal of helping others gain the knowledge and skills required to be a successful leader and build a high-performing, engaged work team.

Participants will engage with interactive, experiential activities, and debriefs will illustrate key theories and techniques. Practice opportunities will be available to try out, using the learned theories and techniques with job-related examples.

All sessions will take place on Wednesday mornings from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and be held virtually over Zoom. Each course is $89, which includes the two sessions and all required materials. Online registration is available at www.alextech.edu/CustomizedTraining.
