Management Skills Workshops
Management skills may not be an integral part of law, architecture, accounting, consulting, medical and other professional programs. That doesn’t change how essential they are to running an efficient and effective practice. Whether your team has demonstrated aptitude or not, rest assured that management skills can be taught and they can have immediate, positive impact on accountability, engagement and performance.
At Bekhor Management, our management skills workshops address the sensitivities and requirements of professional practice. We also tailor content to meet the needs of your specific challenges, so that you’re not just learning abstract theory but able to apply practical concepts to real world scenarios, the very next morning.
Packages include: an initial needs assessment, a survey of participants’ challenges, evaluation forms and a follow-up session to provide you with recommendations for further integration of the new concepts. Workshops are offered exclusively on-site at your location, ensuring a private learning experience for your team to practice and discuss their own actual challenges that relate to the material. Each learning module is two hours in duration. Modules may be combined for full or half day workshops.
