The transition from individual contributor to manager can be a daunting task. A survey by CEB, now Gartner, revealed that more than 50% of new managers fail. Balancing new responsibilities while learning how to lead former peers is a common challenge that most first-time managers struggle to overcome.

During this webinar, Learning & Development Manager Libby Mullen will discuss this challenge and five others that new managers face. She’ll explain why management training is a crucial element to success as your newly promoted managers transition to roles that require new, and frequently unfamiliar, skills and competencies.

After this webinar, you should be able to:
  • Identify key strengths and improve weaknesses of first-time managers
  • Improve the relationship of new managers and their employees through emotional intelligence development and coaching techniques
  • Create a training plan that builds confidence and increases productivity for your new managers
