Making the transition from individual contributor to leader is the toughest workplace transition an individual can experience. One day you are working side-by-side, "in the trenches" with your friends, and the next day you're in charge.

Learning how to lead is a skill and, like any skill, it can be learned with education and practice. This interactive program will provide new managers and supervisors with the broad set of skills they need to successfully transition into management.

The experiential nature of the class will provide participants with multiple opportunities to practice using newly acquired skills such as assigning tasks, holding employees accountable, providing feedback and creating documentation, and enhancing performance.

Participants will establish written goals and will receive a reminder of those goals in the mail 30 days after class. Participants are also welcome to follow up with the faculty through email, telephone calls, and text messages.

  • Successfully navigate the transition to management and supervision
  • Explore the impact of leaders and leadership roles
  • Set the tone on the first day as a leader
  • Build strong teams by
    • Enhancing employee motivation and engagement

    • Providing and receiving meaningful feedback
  • Clarify expectations
  • Comply with employment and labor laws
