Frontline managers—often called people managers—are a vital part of any organization. One of their primary responsibilities is to develop the talent of their direct reports. Recognizing their importance ATD has developed the ACCEL skills model, which focuses on five key skills necessary for managerial success: accountability, communication, collaboration, engagement, and listening and assessing.

This webcast will center on applying these skills to developing direct reports. You will also hear recommendations for overcoming some of the barriers to exhibiting ACCEL skills, and suggestions for creating ACCEL skills training.
