Making your new management position successful

Topic: Management & Leadership

Very often, an employee is promoted to a managerial position on the basis of his or her recognized expertise. When a new manager takes over, he/she face real changes in the situation as well.

But managerial expertise is different. Managers have to learn to delegate. They also have to learn to motivate coworkers. This is one of the main lessons any new manager has to learn.

This is a 2-part module.

Part A Learning objectives:

Analysis grids to help you understand your new environment. Practical methods to help you identify group and individual coworkers’ imperatives.

  • How are things different when you become a manager.
  • What to prepare for your new appointment with your boss.

Part B Learning objectives:

You will learn to resolve difficult situations through role-plays, and will engage in group and pair work to tackle complex management issues.

  • What to expect in your first meeting as a manager with your coworkers.

Learning outcomes:

  • You have been prepared on the changes to expect as you become a manager. You will learn about the demands of a management posting and your medium-term priorities, and how to prepare for your new appointment with your boss.
  • In Part B of this module, you will learn how to lead your first meeting as a manager. You will then be able to handle initial interviews with your coworkers or manage more delicate situations, such as managing former colleagues, experts and more senior coworkers. You will also be able to identify and differentiate between tasks that are urgent and important, thereby helping you to delegate effectively.

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
