Great management is difficult to see as it occurs. Great management happens in one-on-one meetings and with other managers all in private. It's hard to learn management by example when you can't see it.

Find out what goes on Behind Closed Doors and see how a skilled manager turns around a tricky management situation in seven weeks. You'll learn how to provide and use feedback effectively, and become a better coach and mentor peers and team members. As you begin to build a cohesive, "jelled" team you'll learn how to use your influence across the organization and make better choices daily to survive and thrive.
