TTC Project Offers Live Virtual Training to Support Managers

To help managers and supervisors engage employees in conversations about updated titles and position descriptions, the Title and Total Compensation (TTC) Project is offering live virtual manager trainings.

In this interactive training, supervisors and managers will prepare for conversations, explore ways to engage employees in the process, and learn from other managers. Skills gained in this session may also help managers have effective conversations in the workplace.

During this session managers/supervisors will practice:
• Customizing communication to meet individual needs
• Listening empathically to understand employee concerns
• Exploring ways to empower employees during a time of change
