Program Description/Overview

Achieving managerial success depends on being able to adapt to many new and different situations and applying new learning to those situations.  Many professionals who are promoted to supervisory or managerial levels have strong technical or functional skills but lack the “leaning agility” to be successful in the new role. This keeps many newly-promoted managers functioning at a marginal level.  This course will help participants understand the typical stallers and stoppers for new managers and  build strategies to develop, adapt to, or compensate for the competencies required to be successful.

Key Topics:

  • Overview of how leaders grow and develop
  • Nine box model for selection and development
  • Key elements of learning agility
  • 19 Stallers of managerial success
  • Core competencies that help foster learning agility
  • Strategies for development, adaption, or compensation of success barriers


  • An understanding of the key factors that lead to promotion and development
  • A model for building a development plan to build success in the transition from technician to supervisor, supervisor to manager, and manager to leader
  • Personal assessment of  learning agility and feedback on individual gaps
  • Identification of 19 career stallers and stoppers
  • Overview of the top competencies that lead to managerial success
  • Application of success strategies to overcome barriers to success
