    Give managers the skills to be effective

    A primer of core leadership skills for managers or HR professionals aiming to ingrain proven leadership principles into their organizations

    Too often, new managers are thrown into the deep end of a supervisory or managerial position with little-to-no training on what it means to be an effective leader or what it takes to be a good manager. As a result, up to 50% of first-time managers fail within the first year.

    The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Time to do away with the school of hard knocks and create an in-the-moment learning program that your organization, and managers, need. Each Manager Essentials program is customized to support your corporate strategy, goals, and values, and focuses on the core skills for successful people management.

    I often did not provide feedback that would come off as not positive on my direct report. I am now communicating by reinforcing the positive and providing guidance on areas of improvement. The response has been great and it is helping build supervisor/supervisee work relation and improvements.
