New Leaders and Managers

October 7 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm

One Day, 8-hour in person seminar

October 7, 2022
7:00 AM – 3:00 PM


We often promote associates to positions they are not trained for, thereby setting them and the company up for failure, or at the very least a painful and extended learning process. Training new Leaders and Managers to identify and address the new issues they will be facing is essential to their success. Training will provide the knowledge, experience will provide the wisdom, and practice will lead to greater leadership and management experiences.

This 1-day course is packed full and designed for the newly promoted or future leader in our companies. It is also suitable for junior leaders and managers who have not been formally exposed to management styles and philosophies.

  • The difference between Leadership and Management
  • The relationship between responsibility and accountability
  • Learn to be a critical thinker
  • Effective delegation including feedback and assessment
  • Shared responsibility for an outcome
  • Common reasons for individual failures and successes
  • Constant and continuous improvement

  • The structure of a successful Team

It is often said that Leaders have one thing Manager don’t…followers. The participants in this course will learn to develop skills that will encourage volunteer followers through effective Leadership.
