CPM 2.0 Develop Your Leadership Mindset

This four-class series is the next step for CPM graduates to continue developing with a focus on leadership.

The Collaborative Performance Management Program (CPM) focused on helping you to improve the way you manage the performance of others. The focus of CPM 2.0 is to develop yourself as a leader. You will build on the knowledge and skills you gained in the CPM program and become more aware of your approach and the opportunities you have in leading others. The four classes in this program will be conducted in cohort style and will only include those who have completed the full CPM Program. This program is offered at least twice per year.
