This two-part course will include brief homework assignments to help attendees practice new skills and apply their learning to their work.


Professionals from multiple disciplines whose job descriptions include team management, supervision, staff training, and/or performance evaluations who experience high turn over, are new to their position, or who would otherwise like to improve their performance.

We also welcome those for whom the topic is within their scope of practice, students and others who are also interested in the topic to join us. Note that continuing education credit may not be available for all professionals in the target audience. ABAC will provide a certificate of attendance for those who attend for professional development purposes.
