Exclusively for PR Council Members


People don’t magically become great managers – it takes focus, skill, and practice.

To accelerate this journey, we are introducing a new workshop with a highly regarded organization, Mark Strong Coaching. During two 2.5-hour sessions, participants will review core strategies and tools to improve critical skills around modern management. By teaching a foundation of essential manager skills for employees at various levels and then applying them through role-playing, this course provides a high level of engagement, interactivity, and practical tools participants can put to work to immediately inspire team members and drive better results.

Prior to the session, each participant will complete a DiSC assessment, a simple and practical tool to help managers understand their own style and the styles of others. The assessment, which is done online and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete, will be explored in the beginning of the first session to uncover the following:

  • One’s personal work style and how that style affects all aspects of their management and communication
  • How to predict the styles of others to better understand how they work to optimize performance and drive success
  • Strategies to adapt one’s style to work more effectively with others and optimally address challenging conversations

Building on that, the program also features sections on sharpening general feedback skills, handling tough conversations, and becoming an effective coach for the team – especially in remote and hybrid work. The two-day schedule incorporates group, pair, and individual activities to allow participants to practice applying new skills.
