DEVELOPING NEW MANAGERS
“Great leaders don't tell you what to do, they show you how it’s done…”
How many times have you seen somebody who is technically gifted, get that first promotion onto the management ladder, and then seen them flounder at best or heard them ask ‘now what?’.
Providing your Line managers with the right mindset and skillset to manage individuals and teams effectively is a basic requirement to set them up for the success that they and the team deserve. Nobody likes to work for a bad manager.
From her experience, there are certain behaviours that set apart the good boss from the bad boss. Jo has brought the best of the ‘best bosses’ together in a programme of activity to support Line managers to think differently and to recognise what their teams need from them.
While the programme will be tailored for your organisational needs, key topics will include:-
- Effective Leadership Styles
- Understanding and inspiring teams
- Personal impact and influencing
- Managing time
- Managing change
- Big picture thinking
