From Staff to Supervisor: Strategies for a Smooth Transition

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

The first time supervisor - strategies for a successful transition covers from the beginning of the critical factors of the self-assessment, through the critical for success skills, pros and cons in different environments, and concludes with the eight critical to success factors that every manager needs to know.

We all know the story too well, where a manager promotes the best single contributor to a supervisor and it ends in harming everyone involved and the business. Are good work habits, technical knowledge, demonstrated manual skills, the best reason to promote that person to a supervisory position - of course not. Yet, it may be happening to you as you become a supervisor for the first time.

This webinar will provide you a detailed road map to the critical for success factors every supervisor needs to know for a successful transition. Thereby, you can avoid the harm to yourself, your employees and your business that a seemingly appropriate promotion to supervisor can bring, when the most important decision-making information and preparation are overlooked. Per Abraham Lincoln, "Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power!" Make sure you are fully aware of what you need to know and do to make your transition to supervisor a successful one.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
