Management Best-Sellers Discussion Series

Class Summary

Many of our Supervisor’s and Manager’s Academy graduates have asked for ongoing development opportunities. They’ve expressed an interest in keeping skills sharp and in staying current with new trends. They are also interested in continuing to network with peers from other organizations.

In response to these requests, AGTS has created a series of facilitated sessions where participants, through instructor-led discussions, will uncover key lessons from respected, best-selling management books.

Participants will meet three times in the upcoming season for two and a half hours each session. The discussion leader is Laura Royal, M.S. Ed., whose background in management and leadership development will guarantee a stimulating and high-payoff series.

Ask us about bringing a discussion series to your organization. We have a variety of titles available, and your book suggestions are also encouraged.
