Next Step – How to Train Workers to Manage and Managers to Lead

Have you got talent on the cusp of transitioning from great worker to a good mid-level manager or a good manager you want to see step up to leadership, but something’s missing? They’re not “quite there”? Then this course is for them. This session will empower your best talent to take the step from tactical to strategic. The shift in skill set between a good worker and a good manager and leader is subtle but significant and staff can spend years on the precipice of this transition, many stalling out, never successfully making it to the next level – they lack the confidence to step up or the know-how to make that subtle but powerful paradigm shift that puts them at the next level. Give your team the confidence and skills to step into effective leadership and to confidently take more responsibility and rise together.
