That is exactly why the “Mastering Leadership course was created - to help newly promoted supervisors successfully transition into their new role through a unique learning experience that combines classical organizational theory with cutting edge research and realistic training. The course culminates in a comprehensive, scenario-based leadership exercise that builds confidence and accelerates mastery of the subject matter by allowing learners to apply the concepts effectively to a variety of problems commonly faced by new supervisors.
