Management for New Managers
One of the mysteries of management training is that it is frequently offered after the manager starts their new role. We all know that first impressions are critical, so why let new managers endanger their credibility by managing without a solid management skill set in place?
Common areas in which managers require support are in; effectively understanding their new environment, prioritizing the issues to be tackled, making smart decisions, communicating effectively, and managing their team.
Join a select group of people who are at the same junction in their careers, and learn the fundamental management mindset that sets managers up for success. Learn an effective system to evaluate the performance of employees across different divisions from IT to Marketing. Discover the basics of a critical thinking framework which supports effective problem solving and decision making.
We have arranged for Kepner-Tregoe, the most respected critical thinking training and consulting company in the world, to provide insight into what you will need to tackle core management principles head on. Discover for yourself why leading companies worldwide insist their managers have a background in Kepner-Tregoe’s thinking processes to ensure their personal and corporate success.
If there’s some certainty that a person within your organization will be making the jump to a managerial position don’t wait until it’s too late. Failure to prepare can damage a would-be manager’s reputation along with severely compromising a company’s internal/external communication structures leading to lost productivity and internal conflicts.
The half-day seminar won’t be the be-all and end-all of management training but a start of an on-going journey to becoming a respected, trusted and inspiring leader who delivers results.
