Next Steps Series – Development: Moving From Employee to Manager to Leader
First-time supervisors face unique challenges as they transition to management. They must supervise work with which they may be unfamiliar, and supervise employees with whom they had previously been co-workers or employees with greater seniority. They must understand the extent of responsibility and decision-making authority they have, finding ways to communicate expectations to their employees and making possibly unpopular decisions. Excellence in technical or financial skills does not automatically translate to excellence in leading and supervising others.
This course will give new supervisors, managers, and leaders the skills and understanding needed to successfully navigate the transition.
