Preparing a New Manager for Success

This is the description from our webinar that was presented in July 2018. Please check back for a modified description. Topics may be updated, but registration is now open.

Equipping New Managers with Creative Success Strategies
What is the value of creating a true onboarding process for a new manager? For starters, it positively affects engagement, turnover and the bottom line. The blowback of putting someone in a managerial role without giving them the necessary tools and know-how is a real setup for failure, at worse, and delayed success at best. New managers that are ill prepared for their role will meet morale issues, compromised quality and over the top stress. When have you ever met a stressed-out manager, who had a calm team. Learn how to reduce the risk of a mediocre performance by both the manager and their team.

What are common mistakes when appointing a new manager?
Just because you named someone manager, doesn’t mean they are one. There’s more to be done than simply hope for the best. Don’t convince yourself that no news is good news! It’s also a bad idea to throw everything you can at them. Onboarding a new manager requires you to stay connected, create feedback loops, do pre-checks and maintenance checks, and create a professional development plan.

What is the difference between a management development program, which gives employees the skills needed to become a manager in the future and a manager onboarding program? A manager onboarding program includes skills that an employee needs the minute he or she becomes a manager. This online seminar will explore what not to do as well as creative success strategies.
