Management Workshops

Managing for Engagement and Innovation- Female Founders Special

Management Training

In January, we’re dedicating our manager workshop to female founders and leaders. If you identify as female, please join us and your colleagues for an engaging session with facilitators Gary Ford, Rebekka Goldsmith and Jennie Helman. We’ll take a special look at how women can succeed in leadership.

As startups grow, you may have moved quickly into leadership role where you’re managing teams, and sometimes even managing managers for the first time. As a new manager there’s a lot to know, so why not speed up your learning curve? uniquelyHR has created this manager boot-camp to provide practical tips and hands-on experience helping you improve team engagement, learn to coach your direct reports, and foster innovation. As a bonus, you will also build a network of peers in Seattle’s startup community!
