Managing people is hard. And managing people as a woman brings its own complications and considerations. Management and leadership training specifically designed for women can help, but if traditional in-person training isn’t an option for you, there’s plenty of online women’s management training out there, and that’s what Reader K is looking for. She asks:
Do you have any suggestions for online leadership/managerial training programs for women (or anyone really)? I am a government lawyer stepping into a managerial position and there is no formal training beyond my past experience watching my supervisors. I would like to take a more proactive step toward developing better managerial and leadership skills, but don’t know where to start. Thanks!
