The First Time Manager
Becoming a first-time manager is one of the most challenging and overwhelming career transitions an individual can face. Research shows that less than 10 percent of managers were prepared for a leadership role. Promoting a high-performer without the proper management skills can have serious consequences for both the individual and the organization. New managers fail when:
- They don’t establish goals
- They don’t communicate expectations
- They don’t give effective feedback
- They don’t move from “doer” to “leader"
This course covers essential topics such as hiring and firing, leadership, motivation, managing time, dealing with superiors, and much more.
