There are thousands of people being promoted into management roles each year, and the transition from successful employee to successful manager is a difficult one, requiring a completely different skill set. Our First-time Manager training program sets your new managers up for success by providing them with the training and skills needed to make a smooth transition. New managers are often chosen from high-performing individuals. These highly proficient doers quickly become struggling new managers, without the methods or skills needed to succeed. The failure rates are daunting.

GREAT STARTS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE
First-time managers who receive the necessary tools, skills, and training, right from the start, are set up to become effective leaders who can foster engaged, productive direct reports and drive greater results for your organisation.
Build early momentum – Training helps managers make a smooth,
successful transition and feel good about themselves and their new role.
Create High-Performing Teams– Properly trained managers know how to support,
motivate, and empower their team members to drive performance and results.

This is a one-day, face-to-face facilitated workshop. There are two pre-class activities that take about 15 minutes. The workshop is a fast-moving combination of content, engaging activities, entertaining videos, and skill practice. After the workshop, participants have access to the First-time Manager Challenge, which guides learners through a set of tasks to practice new skills back on the job. They also have access through their learner portal to workshop videos and worksheets for a year.
