The transition to management isn’t just a promotion and a pay raise - it’s a shift into a new type of role that requires new skill sets and you are bound to trip up along the way when you are first starting out.
Sure, you were good enough to get promoted but being a manager has challenges you never dealt with when you were an employee. Being good at your job doesn't guarantee that you will be a good leader or manager.
When taking on a leadership role, the learning curve can be steep and frightening, but there are plenty of ways to make the transition easier for yourself—and your team. If you approach your role as a leader with the right mindset and focus on these key leadership skills, you will not only survive but thrive.
This webinar will benefit those who have transitioned into a new management role with tips and tools for engaging, motivating, and building high performance. How quickly you can formulate a plan and learn these fundamentals matters most.
Management is a set of processes that keep an organization functioning, measuring performance, problem-solving clarifying jobs. Managers control a group or team to accomplish a goal. So, you may have come up through the ranks as a worker bee, maybe you were the top employee and can implement strategic tasks. But just because you excel at the day-to-day work of an organization doesn’t mean that you will be great with big-picture initiatives.
No one is born knowing how to be a manager. You will need to rise to the occasion and help the whole team see how their work fits into company objectives. And there’s a lot more that you will need to do to be successful, so let’s discuss some of the things the best leaders do.
