Gallup’s research on employee engagement finds that 70% of employee disengagement is due to the manager.  It’s exciting moving into your first management role, but it requires learning and developing new skills that aren’t always clear.  In this 3-part series, you will learn the skills needed to make the transition successfully so that you bring out the best in your team members.

This training is ideal for those that are new to managing and those that would like to deepen their skills in effectively managing others.

In this 4-hour workshop you will learn the biggest mistake new managers make and how to avoid it.  Explore:

  • Your role is changing:  Understand how to make the shift and set a vision for the kind of leader you want to be.
  • Moving from doer to delegator:  Let go of Superhero Syndrome to delegate effectively across the skill levels of each team member.
  • Great expectations:  Set clear expectations for your team so they know what success looks like, and learn about the team’s expectations of you (yes, they have them).
  • Time management:  Your team will appreciate you respecting their time through effective meeting management, evaluating work loads for hidden time wasters, and updating procedures that streamline how work gets done.

In this class you will walk away with practical tools for creating core competencies and making the most of team member time that you can implement right away.

And don’t miss the other sessions in this series: Management 201: Productivity Hacks & Team Recognition Strategies and Management 301: Hiring, Managing, and Succession Planning.
