In a new leadership role? Watch this management webinar and learn what role shifts to make

On Demand

Duration: 1 hour

About the Webinar

Leading isn’t easy, and the most effective managers understand that different situations call for different responses. If you’re in a new leadership role, you need to be ready for whatever comes your way. Sometimes you’ll need to pitch in and be a team player; sometimes you’ll need to put on your coaching hat. At other times, you’ll need to either manage the crew or steer the whole ship. These 4 shifts in your leadership role — from player, to coach, and from manager, to leader — define how you interact with your team, and each role requires a unique mindset and different skillset.

Changing your perspective (especially on the fly) isn’t easy, but nothing important ever is. In this webinar, we’ll go over the new leadership role transitions that all managers need to be able to make and discuss how they tie into the 6 essential skillsets that new leaders should master. We’ll also take a look at proven, research-based approaches to helping make a smoother transition from individual contributor to first-level leader. Watch this webinar to learn more about:

  • The 4 leadership role shifts that the most successful managers make;
  • The crucial “flip” in thinking needed to transition to leading others for the first time;
  • The key skills that all leaders of people and projects must build and continuously hone; and
  • The needs of modern learners, given different modalities of learning, and options for how frontline leaders can develop themselves and their ability to play the leadership role that the situation calls for.

This webinar is especially for:

  • Managers of people or projects looking for tips to develop themselves into better leaders, especially if they’re new to their leadership role; and
  • HR, Learning & Development, or Talent Management professionals responsible for developing and engaging first-time, first-level, or frontline leaders.

Develop the 4 essential roles of leadership among your frontline managers and first-level leaders. Our new manager courses are targeted to develop needed skills and address common challenges they face.
