Management Essentials Online Course

with Dr. Patricia Thompson

So here you are.

You finally made it to leadership, and you couldn’t be prouder of yourself. Kudos to you!

Yet, sometimes you have the feeling that you’re a little unprepared to manage others in the best way possible.

  • Do you ever feel unsure, misunderstood, or just a little over your head?
  • Do you wish you knew what to do to motivate and excite a team?
  • Do you want to know how to coach people so they can fulfill their potentials?
  • Do you want your meetings to be ones that people actually want to attend?
  • Do you want to be able to delegate and hold people accountable in a way that actually works?

I’ve got you covered.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
– John Quincy Adams

This is a great quote, but talk about pressure! Luckily, I have the perfect solution for you:

  • Creates a culture of accountability that results in high standards.

The course is based on my years of experience consulting and coaching leaders. and it’s designed for anyone who needs to learn their management basics.  So, whether you’re an aspiring leader, new leader, or a leader who needs to brush up on the leadership essentials, this course is for you.

And in case you haven’t met me yet…

I’m Dr. Patricia Thompson, and I’m a corporate psychologist who helps leaders engage and inspire their people by teaching them how to develop their talents, unleash their authentic selves, and use research-based strategies to help others fulfill their potentials. On my way to getting my PhD, I was educated at the University of Toronto, Georgia State University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Emory University School of Medicine. I’ve won awards for teaching, research, and being a general over-achiever in the classroom.

For the past 10+ years I have been consulting with organizations ranging from small businesses on up to Fortune 500 companies, helping them to foster growth, development, and results in their people. I get a great deal of personal gratification from helping people, whether it is a college student determining his career path, an entry level manager working on being more productive, a CEO determining how best to motivate the people on her team, or a random person needing directions on the street. I LOVE what I do, and am committed to helping you get the best outcomes possible.

Why I Created the Program

I created The Management Essentials Online Course to help new leaders to feel more confident and be more effective in their roles. As an executive coach, I work with a lot of individuals, and am all too familiar with the insecurity and feelings of overwhelm that can go along with leadership.

Because I know that everyone doesn’t have the luxury of being able to work one-on-one with an executive coach, I decided to put together a program that would provide lots of information, resources, and step-by-step guidance to help people to develop into outstanding leaders. It’s my passion, and I’m proud to be able to share this course with you.

In my work, I have seen the effects of great leadership.

Great leadership elevates people, inspires them, and allows teams to accomplish audacious goals.

It is truly a beautiful thing, and I want to cultivate more of that in the world. But the course isn’t about me talking. It’s about you learning, experimenting with new behaviors, and growing, both personally and professionally.
