First-time Managers

Putting Management Skills into Practice


“Congratulations. You’ve just been promoted to manager!”


Being a manager is an amazing opportunity, but it also requires skills and abilities that weren’t demanded from you before you were promoted. For the first-time managers, making the transition from being an individual contributor to a manager can be a dramatic shift. First-time managers are mostly always promoted to that position because of their individual success in their previous positions. They are high performers who have been accountable and performed.


According to the research, 60% of newly promoted managers fail within the first 24 months of their new position. The main reason why most new managers fail is because they were never properly trained to manage. Failing first-time managers do not change their mindset and remain focused on their individual performance.


A poor manager is nothing more than a person who is fearful of bringing themselves to work all the way. Instead of concentrating on high-level issues and solutions, many first-time managers are too busy holding onto their former tasks.


Our program develops your managers and provides ROI for your organization. Get all the key management skills that you need to be a great manager.
