New Manager Jumpstart
One of the biggest mistakes new leaders make is assuming the skills that got them promoted are the skills they’ll use in their new management role. Nothing could be further from the truth. As an individual contributor, it’s easy to work independently; you’re in control of the work you complete. When you get great results through diligence, knowledge and technical expertise, you’re rewarded, and sometimes even promoted. That’s NOT the job of a leader, however, which is why it’s so difficult to go from individual contributor to first-time manager. A manager’s primary focus is getting work done with and through others. Your role is about your ability to guide others to accomplish the work. The leap can feel enormous, especially if you have limited experience supervising others, yet with the proper framework, awareness, and training, you can do it successfully, standing out as a manager just as you did as an individual contributor! This session covers the skills you can use to evolve into a leader who builds a high performance team and shares tools for getting results through others. Learn how to:
- Make the critical mindset shift from individual contributor to successful manager;
- Build relationships and teamwork based on trust;
- Become a deep and powerful listener for greater influence and impact, and
- Leverage the power of questions to lead more effectively.
