Mastering the Leap to Management: a webinar for new managers

Recorded Session
60 Minutes


    Anyone who’s been a manager will tell you that there is a huge difference between doing and managing.

    • Instead of doing the work you love, you spend your time in meetings, filling out forms, writing projections and dealing with personnel problems.
    • Instead of just making sure you get to work at 8:00 AM, you now worry that your team gets there at 8:00 AM.
    • Instead of worrying about whether your work is sufficiently done and turned in on time, you must worry that your team is sufficiently doing their work and turning it in on time.
    • Instead of ignoring the toxic team member, you have to do something about him.

    And the list goes on.

    In most organizations, if you are the best at your craft, it’s likely you’ll be selected to be the next team leader, supervisor or manager. The irony is that very few new managers get the leadership skills training on how to actually manage the new manager challenges. The reality is that you must leap into a whole new set of tasks that require a whole new set of skills.
