Overview

Are you a new manager and finding it hard to adjust to managing a team? Were you a high-performing specialist and presently find yourself struggling with the feeling of a loss of control that comes with managing other people? Do you find yourself stuck when it comes to creating accountability, credibility, and trust among your former peers?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you are not alone. According to a recent study:

  • 26% of first-time managers felt they were not ready to lead others to begin with.
  • Almost 60% said they never received any training when they transitioned into their first leadership role.

You will learn ways to build credibility and trust, discover how to cultivate positive workplace relationships, provide direction, and motivate your team with clear objectives in mind. You will also learn about different leadership approaches and gain clarity and insights on what you need to adapt to be successful in your role.
