The New Manager In You Leadership Program

Leadership Series - The New Manager In You - 2 Days

Program Overview

We have all heard before that, what makes a good worker need not necessarily make a good manager. Similarly, what worked well in the past may not be sufficient to support the new manager to be effective. The transitional shift for an individual member of any organization to the position of responsibility as a manager is probably the single most challenging factor in organizational life. In every given situation, there is a profound need to transform our thinking about work and relationships by learning new skills and knowledge.

However long ago you learnt to ride a bicycle, it’s likely an experience you’ve never forgotten. The skill remains with you today. When was your last corporate training program? How much of what was learnt is actively applied in your business today? Are all that remains the workshop manuals left on your shelf?

These changes make an impact on results where it matters.
