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.
All course materials will be provided electronically. Registered students will receive access instructions in their enrollment reminder emails prior to class.
