As a manager, you are faced with new challenges constantly. Sometimes this comes from outside of the business from customers, suppliers, and the like. Other times this comes internally from your team. Being a manager is truly an art and can require a great deal of trial and error to become successful at it.

Rick Graham created this course to help curb the learning curve so you can lead your team from a position of strength regardless of the personality you may encounter along the way.
