Webinar 1: Strategies for a Successful Transition for the First Time Supervisor

Transitioning from peer to leader is difficult, and 50-60% of first-time leaders fail within the first 24 months of their new role. Why? Most people taking on a management role for the first time have had little or no management training, so they are forced to learn as they go—or, the skills and work that got them the job aren’t the ones needed to be a successful leader. To set new managers up for success, you first need to identify their leadership expertise and fill in the gaps with outside training, on-the-job coaching, or a combination of both. You also need to understand who they are. By identifying their behavioral preferences and natural leadership style, you can channel their strengths and improve their weaknesses to create self-aware, successful managers.

During this practical webinar, you will learn about tips and resources to set new managers up for success by:

  • Identifying employees’ strengths and challenges before promoting to a leadership role
  • Creating a culture of success for first-time managers through self-awareness and coaching
  • Understanding the keys to success during a new leader’s first 90 days
  • Avoiding the common pitfalls of first-time leaders
