Why Should you Attend
Avoiding major mistakes is the beginning of the new manager's journey, not the end. It takes years of small steps and daily effort to become a truly great manager. How you can mitigate those mistakes to turn around a potentially disastrous outcome.

In many instances, managers have not been trained on how to deliver constructive feedback and they are unduly concerned that any critical conversations will turn people against them. People leave managers, not jobs or employers. So, this is why educating them and coaching them for success matters to you and your employees. And this webinar will offer tips and tools for engaging, motivating and building high performance teams.

Areas Covered
  • The importance of building your credibility and managing tasks while leading people
  • Doing instead of managing - you're now being paid to direct and oversee others' work - not do it yourself
  • Not managing realistic goals and expectations - Develop attainable, measurable goals together
  • Lacking boundaries - Disciplinary process
  • Micromanaging - micromanaging ultimately derails your team's motivation and creativity
