Success strategies to fast track new managers


Fast track New Managers. Moving into a managerial role requires the development of leadership skills and techniques to enhance your personal and team outcomes. Very often, however, many new managers fail to grasp how their roles have changed; that their jobs are no longer about personal achievement but instead about enabling others to achieve; that sometimes driving the bus means taking a backseat: and that building a team is often more important than making a sale.

New managers have these challenges:

  • Adjusting to unanticipated reality of managerial life: Not being in control because of the often-conflicting demands of your boss, staff and peers
  • Switching from relying solely on their formal title and authority to establishing credibility and influence with their team and other stakeholders
  • Letting go of old ways of working from being responsible just for your own results to now being responsible for the work and results of the entire team

Using the analogy of an orchestra, a new manager must move from being a talented violinist who concentrates on playing his or her instrument skillfully to being a conductor who coordinate the efforts of all the musicians.

In this webinar ‘Fast Track New Managers’, you will be presented with:

  • A New Manager Transition Guide to accelerate your success in your new role
  • A case study and executive coaching of a new manager who has been tasked with “shaping up” his department.
  • “Real world” examples and strategies in addition to research on new manager development

In this program, you will learn:

  • Seven critical mistakes of rookie managers and why they make them
  • The importance of knowing your boss, your job; your staff, your peers, your customers
  • About your personal power and emotional intelligence to understand your impact on others
  • Four influencing strategies and be able to determine which to use in different situations
  • Five “rules of the road” from peak performers on how to ramp up quickly and start getting results
  • The key tasks, you as a new manager, need to accomplish in the first 90 days
  • The skill of influencing up, down and around
  • How does a young new manager deal with older team members who have been there a long time
  • What do you do when you’ve made a decision that did not turn out as you expected

This session will benefit New or Recently Promoted Staff and Operational Managers, Team Leaders, Supervisors, Managers Who Have Not Had Leadership Development or Anyone Transitioning Into a Leadership Role; Team And Project Leaders, VP Human Resources, Human Resource Professionals, Chief Learning Officer
