Whether you have been promoted to a management position because of your leadership on an existing team, or because this is a goal you have been aiming for your whole career, you are an early career manager.
Your first management job is a huge challenge: you have to learn new terms and skills, make a lot more decisions, and find ways to motivate, challenge, and communicate with a team of employees. Many of your new team members may have been your co-workers before. Your peer managers may not yet be used to seeing you in a leadership position. A new manager role is challenging for everyone.
This interactive and engaging session will empower you with leadership tools and techniques so you can earn the trust and respect of your direct reports and thrive in your new management position to lead engaged teams with buy-in and a sense of purpose.
