Create great leaders


January 6 – February 17, 2022
Virtual  |  Thursdays 9:00 – 11:00am

Develop leadership skills


Communicate more effectively


Create high-performance workers and teams

“Pivot” became the 2021 word of the year as we all scrambled to adapt to rapidly changing conditions. It’s crucial for leaders to acquire new skills and competencies such as openness, empathy, resilience, and communication to effectively manage their teams. Great leaders attract, hire, and inspire great people – key to reducing turnover and filling the talent pipeline.

RI Bio’s virtual Leadership Training for Emerging Leaders will help young professionals become strong leaders who can empower and coach employees, create a culture of creativity and adaptability, and develop a more productive workplace. Seven modules, one coaching session and a capstone project is included.
