Essential Skills for the First-Time Manager or Supervisor
Effectively communicate, delegate, and manage priorities to achieve management success with this first time manager training course
You earned your new supervisor position … this training program will help you make the most of it!
In your previous position, you did a great job. Yet, you're smart enough to know the skills that made you a
great team player won't necessarily make you a great supervisor. For any new supervisor, training is key to success
in this role.
- It's not enough to follow directions … now you must give directions about what
gets done, when, and by whom.
- It's not enough that your projects are accurate and on time … you have to
help others keep their projects on track, and see that everyone works together.
- It's not enough to focus only on your department … suddenly you're a member
of the management team. Your new peers will expect you to have a broader perspective, including other departments.
- It's not enough to keep yourself motivated … you have to be a coach, cheerleader,
and "strong shoulder" to people who have bad days, conflicts with each other, and other demands that
you might not be able to satisfy.
Make your move into your new supervisor position smoother and more successful.
Attend this one-day class and gain all the skills and insights you need to lead with confidence
and conviction, including:
