Many managers lack fundamental training in managing people. Every manager messes up at some point. What really matters is whether he or she responds with grace and humility, is quickly able to formulate and enact a recovery plan and learns from the mistakes - things that not everyone does.

This webinar will help you recognize and learn how to avoid the biggest and most common mistakes important for anyone in a managerial position. Managers and supervisors who have recently been promoted, those taking on new responsibilities, those with little or no formal training - even seasoned professionals need a refresher every now and then- will benefit from the ideas, techniques and tools that are offered in this session.

Objectives of the Presentation:
  • How to be an effective Manager?
  • How to delegate effectively?
  • How to build trust & engage your team members to identify areas for improvement?
  • Learn to manage up and communicate to all stakeholders
  • How to mitigate obstacles and conflicts?
  • What are the essential tips and techniques to mitigate risks?
Why Should you Attend:

Avoiding major mistakes is the beginning of the new manager's journey, not the end. It takes years of small steps and daily effort to become a truly great manager. How you can mitigate those mistakes to turn around a potentially disastrous outcome.

In many instances, managers have not been trained in how to deliver constructive feedback and they are unduly concerned that any critical conversations will turn people against them. People leave managers, not jobs or employers. So, this is why educating them and coaching them for success matters to you and your employees. And this webinar will offer tips and tools for engaging, motivating and building high performance teams.

Areas Covered:
  • The importance of building your credibility and managing tasks while leading people
  • Doing instead of managing - you're now being paid to direct and oversee others' work - not do it yourself
  • Not managing realistic goals and expectations - Develop attainable, measurable goals together
  • Lacking boundaries - Disciplinary process
  • Micromanaging - micromanaging ultimately derails your team's motivation and creativity
  • Not providing or receiving feedback, not listening - communication issues, lacking in two-way feedback
  • Refusing to listen to employees - steps managers take that can improve employee relationships
  • Lack of personal accountability and integrity in the workplace
  • Not managing personnel performance - Importance of partnering with human resources
  • Managing with a negative attitude - Beware of replicating negative behaviors instead of forging a healthier path. The road map for success is important in engaging team members
