Stepping up to Leadership | Hawk Training | Monday, 30. September 2019


Management is doing it right; leadership is doing the right things.


Being a first-time manager is not easy and often does not come with the necessary training. 68% of the UK's managers are accidental, having performed extraordinarily well at their role; these managers are thrust into management positions without the new skills needed to effectively lead their teams into the future. We also find that more senior/experienced managers lack the right skills to lead effectively from the front.
This highly interactive course tackles the challenge of transitioning from being a team member to a team manager head on. Providing the tools, methods and structure to balance time, tasks, team needs, performance management and individual development.
The workshop will cover:
Plan your first monthsLearn how to set expectations, build confidence and trust with your new team.
Balance your new responsibilitiesBalance time for tasks, team needs, individual development and performance management.
Inspire othersSpeak with purpose, listen with intent and translate the potential in others to action.
Assess and ManageReview team competencies and provide stretching development opportunities.
