Program Overview: 
As the pivotal connection between organizational leaders and the workforce, managers are uniquely positioned to influence and impact performance provided they have the right skills and knowledge. The Essential Management Skills certificate program provides new managers—and those looking to assume managerial responsibilities—with the fundamental knowledge, skills, and confidence to deliver results. Each session assists with making the realignment in mindset and behavior required to become effective managers. For each training session, participants will be required to complete a pre work assignment. Participants will also be asked to develop an action learning plan for implementation back on the job, as specific concerns and challenges are similarly addressed to ensure success in this initial managerial role.
Program Consists of 3 Critical Skill Area Workshops
  • Mastering the Managerial Role
  • Leading Others for Success
  • Communicating for Results
  • Building Effective Work Relationships
  • Performance Management
  • Coaching for Optimal Performance
  • Analyzing Performance Problems, and Planning for Improvement
  • Building a Positive & Motivating Work Environment
  • Making Decisions and Solving Problems
  • Resolving Conflicts with Employees, Peers, and Others
  • Building and Managing an Effective Team
  • Engaging Today’s Workforce Through Innovation and Change
Each critical skill area is a two day session (scheduled 1st and 3rd week of month); 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Each two-day session is offered at least twice a year in Piscataway. An additional Essential Management Skills program will be offered in spring 2016 in Freehold (3 two-day sessions for each critical skill area will be offered back to back; 2 consecutive days each).
Participants may register for any number of the three critical skill areas in any order, however, we strongly recommend attending all three to maximize the development of essential management skills.  In order to obtain an Essential Management certificate, all three critical skill areas must be completed (6 training days).
