Sometimes, being a middle manager can be challenging.
But with key skills and high confidence in our abilities, it can be manageable AND enjoyable to undertake this key position in an organization.
In PLC’s succession work, it has become very clear that there is a need for training at the middle management level to help managers both step into their leadership potential and develop the skills needed to manage people and resources effectively. Communication, supervision, financial management and a better understanding of leadership were all key areas that EDs and managers identified as crucial to helping middle managers not only survive but thrive in their roles. This is why we created the ‘Leading From The Middle’ program. We enable middle managers to connect and learn together to grow their network, their skills and their confidence.
There is no financial cost but participants will need to commit to the full program as we have found that full attendance gives the most benefit. This program is for Peel Region leaders only.
THE ART OF LEADERSHIP WEDNESDAY, MAY 2ND, 2018
What kind of leader do you aspire to be? What is the difference between managing and leading? This workshop is a dialogue on leadership that balances practice and theory, using storytelling, promising practices, and reflection on our own experiences.
EFFECTIVELY NAVIGATING WORK WITH EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ) WEDNESDAY, MAY 9TH, 2018

This workshop helps you to fine-tune your abilities in supervising, coaching and developing healthy teams. We will also learn about emotional intelligence and why it’s so crucial to cultivating a positive and motivated work environment.
COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS THURSDAY, MAY 17TH, 2018

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS & COLLABORATION/PROGRAM REFLECTION THURSDAY, MAY 31ST, 2018
Relationships are an important part of our work-life. However, in the nonprofit sector they are of crucial importance as we collectively work towards the social change we want to see in the world. We cannot solve social issues by ourselves or even within our own organization. This session is all about networking, making connections and developing better collaborations in the sector. We will talk about the different stakeholders we will come in contact with as managers and how to grow our own and our organization’s professional network.
The other half day of this session will be an opportunity for participants to bring together their learning and set action goals for the future.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR 2018!
