Most companies promote from within and promote individual performers to first line supervisor. This is a good step to help create a career path to develop management people. It makes good business sense, because managers represent an investment in the future.
There is just one problem. The new supervisor has not been prepared in getting results with people rather than doing it all alone. Before long problems with staff occur either because the new manager is applying his own individual work habits and standards to others or he is stepping in doing things himself and micro managing. This should not happen and won’t if new managers are set up for success.
Objectives of the Presentation:
- Learn to recognize potential leaders in your organization
- How to prepare future leaders by designing an individual career path
- The most important performance factor (it is not skill)
- How to become an effective team leader
- Understand the role motivation plays in job performance
Why Should you Attend:
Unfortunately, in many businesses, formal management training is rare. If employees show themselves to be good workers, they get promoted whether they are ready to manage or not. It can be challenging to be the middleman between the employees and the owner. Manager and executives concerned with staff retention and in particularly high performer retention should not miss this webinar. The first line supervisor is the key to the work team.
Majority of the new managers promoted recently receive little to no formal training for the new role which has been assigned to them. It is no surprise that they struggle in the new roles. The natural instinct for most of these new supervisors is to fall back upon the skill sets which made them successful as an individual contributor. But these skill sets are often found inadequate as they grapple with the responsibilities of being a manager. This webinar is for the people new to the role as well as those who can use some additional training to assist with their day to day job activities.
