Who it’s for
First-time and established managers who want to learn the world’s most widely-taught leadership model.
Why this course
You want your newly promoted managers to be effective leaders and successful from the start. But most of the time, we find new managers struggling and their team morale declining. Soon enough, you start realizing that high-performing employees promoted into management lack the skills to be effective managers, which requires a different skillset.
Studies show that without proper training, 60% of all new managers underperform for their first two years. First-time managers who receive the necessary tools and training from the start are set up to become leaders who create engaged, productive teams, and drive greater results for your organization.
The only training of its kind, the First-Time Manager Experience builds on the secrets of the best-selling book, The New One Minute Manager®, to help with the exciting and challenging transition to management.
In this newly developed first-time manager curriculum, Blanchard identifies four skills and conversations all managers must master. Participants will learn:
- Manager Mindset – the mindset required to transition from individual contributor to manager
- Four Conversations Model – a highly effective framework for understanding conversations needed to manage people and performance
- Four Essential Skills – tools to have purposeful conversations that create positive, productive relationships
After the workshop, participants have access to the First-Time Manager Challenge, an online portal that guides learners through a set of tasks to practice skills back on the job. They also have access to the Blanchard app, workshop videos, and worksheets for a full year.
