Your new managers must exhibit true leadership, boost morale, and reduce employee turnover, all while positively impacting your organization's bottom line - a tall order for even the most experienced HR professional. Yet a recent survey found that 86 percent of supervisors have difficulty transitioning from individual contributors into their new management roles, and only 41 percent are satisfied with their current leadership training programs.
With such a staggering percentage of new managers feeling uneasy about their new job description and unsure how to improve their skills, it's vital for HR to step in and make the adaptation process easier and more productive.
HR can help new managers develop practical strategies for everything from transitioning from star employee to successful supervisor to handling difficult conversations with new subordinates. Get up to date on the skills needed to help your new leader not only survive but thrive in her new role.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- How to select the best candidate for a supervisory position
