This event is being rescheduled to a later date. We’ve decided to follow the Governor’s recommendation and apologize for any disruption it causes. 

The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and Bentley University are proud to announce a new partnership that will benefit professionals looking for comprehensive training for managers in an exciting new certificate program.

Overview of Empowering Managers Certificate

The jump from individual contributor to leader or manager of direct reports can be challenging and derails many talented, aspiring leaders. In this four–part leadership development series delivered in partnership with Bentley University, we will address common leadership challenges that often hinder managers, especially first-time managers, as they grow in their roles. You will work to move into a leadership mindset, explore methods to influence employee motivation and address poor performance, learn how to coach employees through development opportunities, and improve your ability to manage up and across organizations. Throughout these sessions, emphasis will be placed on employing practices that foster an inclusive work culture. A digital certificate will be awarded upon completion of three of the four sessions.
