PIA Members - "How to Succeed as a First Time Manager"

About this webinar

New to management? Or relatively new, but with no formal supervisory training? Do you find it challenging to let go of the tasks you’re used to in order to effectively lead a group? If so, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many first-time managers struggle to transition from individual contributor to the one responsible for the output of a team. And to make things even more interesting, the skills and work that got you promoted aren’t necessarily the ones that will make you successful as a leader. And that’s okay too. You’re moving from an “all I need to worry about is me” mentality to a whole different mindset. You have to rely on other people now, motivate them, engage them, and even address performance liabilities in a productive way. Management, like anything else, involves learning a new set of skills and it requires practice. Adding management to the list of skills that got you promoted in the first place will increase your success in the role, as well as give you long-term job satisfaction. Be the best manager you can be by recognizing the pitfalls of first-time managers, and avoiding them. In this session, you’ll learn to shift your thinking and focus your energy on the “we” not the “me”.  

What You'll Learn:

  • Switching from a “me” role to a “we” role
  • Gaining team focus – it’s not all about you
  • How to effectively establish healthy team dynamics
  • Tip on how to motivate your team, and to keep yourself motivated at the same time
  • Keys to success in the first 90 days in your role as first time manager
