The ongoing COVID-19 health crisis will present a decidedly different work environment this winter. A successful outcome hinges on how effectively resort managers, supervisors, and directors lead themselves and staff through the inevitable challenges that will arise. This situation calls for a specific set of leadership skills. In this course, we’ll help you identify and strengthen them.
