3 Online Courses to Help Managers Excel

Invest in your managers with an online leadership development program to boost their skills, knowledge and confidence.

The North American Hardware and Paint Association’s (NHPA) Foundations of Leadership program provides leaders with home improvement industry-specific training. The program offers three different nine-week online courses, including Intro to Leadership, Leading Your Team and Financial Management. Together, these courses lead to a certification in leadership.

As part of each course, managers will also complete a real-world capstone project for their business where they will apply all the knowledge and skills they have learned. The project will focus on solving a problem or capitalizing on a missed opportunity in the business.
