From team member to team leader

45-minute webinar

What are you letting yourself in for? Organisations constantly give people their first line management role because the individual has been identified as being good at their day job, not necessarily being good with people.

People skills are a very different skillset from processes and tasks. Managing people can be the best job in the world, or the worst. No-one tells you what it’s like until you find out for yourself. ‘You’ll be fine’ is all you may get. This webinar will help you understand what to expect and how to prepare for it.

  • Understand your strengths and development areas for stepping up

Designed as a highly interactive 45-minute webinar for groups of 6 to 8, or 60 minutes for groups of up to 12, or 90 minutes for groups of up to 20.
