Transition to Management Training Course

The ‘first line manager’ role is unique in organisations as this person is the one level who manages ‘non-managers’. This brings its own set of hurdles to overcome, and for people new to managing others there is a lot to learn.

Event details:

This course is aimed at those new to management; those with about 6 months experience as a manager; or those you are looking to promote in the next few months.


This programme will help new managers learn about:

  • how their job changes the friendship and management relationship
  • the key challenges ahead so they can avoid early mistakes
  • how not to do it all themselves and delegate things to help
  • managing workloads and deadlines, especially customer demands
  • dealing with the early stages of people problems and conflict
  • developing their team through coaching and team work
  • running team briefings
  • giving 1-2-1 reviews and coaching feedback
  • managing the day-to-day priorities of their team whilst managing their own day job
  • developing a ‘tool-kit’ of techniques and skills which they can use to cope with issues they will face as they grow into their new job

Overall, being a new manager can be tough; and a practical toolkit of best practice do’s and don’ts will really help new managers avoid mistakes, and feel more equipped to cope in the early days.

Who should attend

  • Team leaders, supervisors and project managers with up to one years’ experience in their new role
