Improve leadership skills with powerful training modules



Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) invites local professionals to learn leadership skills immediately applicable to their job with two great training series, “Leadership: Beyond Management” and “Frontline Leadership.”

Taught by experienced instructors, EICC’s leadership training provides affordable, flexible and high-quality training aspiring managers, current managers and even seasoned executives can use to improve performance and increase organizational success. Participants who complete the courses will learn how to become more effective, adaptive and confident leaders.
