Professional Development: Leading Teams

The City of Alliance graduated 20 employees in its first class of a new training program for employees who supervise staff or may do so in the future. The program, Professional Development: Leading Teams helps employees grow and develop soft-skills like communication, motivation and team building. The goal of the program focuses on supervisors and their ability to develop a greater understanding of how their leadership affects those around them. This online, self-paced program included seven courses covering topics like developing your team and its culture, motivating and optimizing performance, effective leadership communication and collaborative strategies for resolving conflicts. Another group of participants will complete the training this fall.
