Training leaders for now and the future

Directors, Managers, Team Leaders, Billing Managers

Too often in the recruitment Industry, consultants are promoted to be a manager or team leader, because they've been successful as a recruiter.

Unfortunately, the two jobs are not necessarily complimentary.

Managing and leading others takes a different set of competencies - especially if you are still billing yourself. Through this L & M Essentials course, we'll cover all of them.
