Leadership Study Group: The 6 Habits of High Performance Leaders
Would you like to gain more clarity, productivity, and courage as a leader?  Do you desire to reach a new level of excellence as you lead your team?  Join us as we read the recent New York Times Bestseller High Performance Habits.  We'll journey together for six weeks and examine how each of the six habits can challenge us to be better leaders through lively discussion, video clips, self-reflection, and shared conversation. The weekly at-home readings and goal-setting exercises will energize and focus you in ways you've never experienced before.  You'll leave this class knowing what the six habits are, and how you can implement them to greatly increase your leadership influence.

Emotional Intelligence 
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is based on the set of behavioral skills that enables us to consistently engage, influence and motivate ourselves and one another. Leaders and teams with high emotional intelligence are more successful and more resilient than those who are only technically qualified. EI is based on such competencies as respecting yourself, persistently working to achieve your full potential, valuing and motivating others, and engaging creatively when conflict happens. Best of all, because emotional intelligence is learned, we can learn new, more effective skills, eliminate ones that aren't working, and learn to do the things we already do well even better!

HR 101: What Every Supervisor Should Know    
Be proactive in your new supervisory role by learning important human resource laws and regulations. Serious legal problems can arise when supervisors ask inappropriate questions, fail to properly document poor performance or inadvertently create a hostile work environment. This knowledge is critical for you to make good decisions in your day-to-day work overseeing your team without violating the law.
