Annual Leadership Development Training Registration

Conflict is inevitable in life, and conflict in the workforce is no different.  This year’s training will focus on having difficult, but necessary, conversations with employees.  We will look at  healthy problem-solving and conflict resolution techniques and skills.  We will also discuss strategies for successful communication in the backdrop of the challenges that COVID has placed upon businesses and leaders.

The observation and intervention steps for the employee distracted by chemical abuse will meet participating state requirements for an hour of drug and alcohol supervisor training in drug testing in their drug-free workplaces.

Please Note: Connections EAP Leadership Development Training will be held online for 2021. See the table below for a list of times and dates.
