Learn how to build a new manager training program that prepares individuals to make the transition from a contributor to a leader. This program will help you increase your managers’ effectiveness, prevent them from creating liabilities for your organization, and reduce their learning curve.
New managers have unique needs. They are making a critical transition into a position of greater responsibility; and this change requires developing a number of competencies quickly. Designing a new manager training program requires a clear understanding of the skills participants will need to succeed in their new roles.
Discover strategies and best practices for achieving the right learning outcomes for your new manager training program, including those for effective coaching, training program roll-out, and training evaluation. You’ll also learn how to determine the right content and methods for your program—you’ll start by using a planning map tool in class to begin designing your own manager training module.
