The High-Impact Practice Management Workshop is a series of three independent, professional development courses designed especially for practice managers and other up-and-coming members of the team. The courses focus on developing strong people management skills and creating a culture of excellence for high-impact practices by:

1. Engaging the strengths of individuals and team members;

2. Providing practical skills that empower learners to address difficult conversations with colleagues; and
