Course: Working and Communicating as a Team (formerly Managing People IV)
This course will help to empower participants as leaders by showing them how to create and work with a strong team. This course will use group activities to help explain what a high involvement team is and how to lead that team. This class will also look into how to implement effective participative decision making with a team. Interpersonal communication is key to any effective team, so this course will also discuss ways to improve interpersonal communication in a team. Finally, this course will look at lessons that can be learned from excellence in the public sector.
Payment is required in advance, except employees of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

Most classes begin at 8:00 a.m. or 8:30 a.m., and adjourn between 3:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. You will receive exact times through your confirmation letter two weeks prior to the course.
To help a participant get the most out of each training course/workshop, attendance is limited. However, without the required minimum of 15 people, a course will be cancelled. All courses are subject to change. If there are any changes, the registered party will be notified immediately.
NOTE: State employees wishing to register for a Roads Scholar course should contact their District Training Coordinators. All state registrations must come to us from the Training Coordinators.
We understand that circumstances may arise that could require you to cancel your registration and we make every effort to accommodate your needs. Due to commitments to our instructors and facilities, please cancel your registration at least two business days prior to the workshop. If we do not receive advance notice of your cancellation, you will be charged the full registration fee. Someone may substitute for you at any time. All cancellations will be given a cancellation number.
