Presentation Description

The shift from employee to manager has always been a transition that we have taken too lightly. Organizations now realize that their best performers will not always make the best managers. In addition, economic and structural shifts have changed our organizations and the expectations that we have for managers forever.

This engaging workshop will help you understand these dynamic issues, and provide you a clear picture on the essential competencies and best practices organizations are using today to on-board and develop effective managers and leaders.

Attendees of this program will learn:
1. The real challenges managers face in the transition from individual contributor to manager.
2. The significant shifts in expectations for managers operating in our “new normal organizations.”
3. The crucibles every new manager needs to succeed within your organization.
4. The methods organizations embrace when identifying, on-boarding & developing new managers.
5. The price of ineffective management selection and development.
