The New Manager
Most people get promoted to the position of People Manager based on their technical expertise but managing people
calls upon a completely different set of skills. Because of this, surviving as a new manager can be difficult. 40%
of managers new to a role don't survive in the role beyond 18 months*.
At best a novice manager without training can just be ineffectual; at worst, they can create detrimental precedents that are hard to manage out of staff. They can also create conflict and demotivation.
The New Manager Course is designed to give you the foundation skills and practical techniques necessary to assert yourself in your position, win over your direct reports and get the best from them.
The program is structured to help an individual gain self awareness and understand how their approach impacts others and what to do about it. The third day is specifically spent on conflict resolution; an important skill set in a manager's toolbox.
Anyone who is new to the role of managing/supervising people or who has been in the role for a while but has not had formal training.
