Leadership Development Program
HR Tech Group is pleased to present a Leadership Development program this Fall, facilitated by Kwela Leadership & Talent Development.
The purpose and focus of this leadership development program:
- To provide a substantial development experience to high tech leaders.
- Focus on foundational skills - team leads and managers will benefit the most from this training, as well as directors who do not yet have a great deal of people management experience.
Format: Due to Covid-19, the program will be offered virtually where participants engage with the facilitator and their peers seamlessly and can collaborate in breakout sessions in small groups just as they would if they were in a classroom.
