New Supervisors and Managers: Essential Training Tactics to Sharpen Leadership Skills and Strengthen Team Performance - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to effectively train new supervisors and managers to lead effectively and excel in their new roles.

It’s a big leap for an employee to go from being an individual contributor to a manager. Part of the reason is that those contributors have exceled at what they do, so they’ve been promoted, which means they’re going to stop doing what they’re good at to manage a team—and knowing how to manage people isn’t an innate trait everyone possesses. The good news is that it can be learned.

HR plays a key role in new supervisors’ success. By focusing on developing the different set of skills new supervisors and managers will need, you’ll be setting them up for a successful transition. For instance, training new managers requires attention to communication strategies, knowing how to listen and lead, and finding ways for former employees to feel comfortable and thrive in their new role.

Use this on-demand webinar, for an in-depth webinar that will walk you through many of the landmark changes that new supervisors new to adjust to. Mary Anne Kennedy, a skilled consultant who regularly trains organizations on practical approaches for successful staffing, leadership, and organizational development, will explain the many shifts recently appointed supervisors need to make to start getting comfortable in their new, and sometimes lonely, role as leaders and motivators, and how they can make those adjustments successfully.
