Being a frontline manager is hard. Meeting organizational demands in an efficient and effective way can be challenging, frustrating and seemingly never ending. In order to succeed, the frontline manager must not only have the technical skills to do the job, but the people skills needed to cultivate and maintain a culture where employees are recognized as the organization’s most important asset and consistently treated that way.
Presented in eight (8) two (2) hour sessions, this series explores what it takes for a frontline manager to become a frontline leader. The journey taken in this series begins with self- awareness, travels through making the break from the line to manager, makes stops to consider the success steps needed to supervise well and arrives with the transition of the manager to leader.
Throughout the entire series the focus will be on the soft skills all managers need. The series is accentuated by active participation of attendees, readings and exercises. Attendees will leave this series not only with the information needed to manage people well, but with the encouragement to do so.
Participants must complete all sessions in order to be awarded a certificate of successful completion. Participants are surveyed anonymously in advance of the training so as to give instructors a better sense of the participant’s background and expectations. Participants are also surveyed at the end of the program to determine the programs impact and to allow for feedback in order to continuously improve the program.
