Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
With an average of 10,000 Baby Boomers retiring every day, the likelihood that you will need to replace a supervisor or manager is high.

You want your new manager to exhibit true leadership, boost morale, and reduce employee turnover, all while positively impacting your organization's bottom line. That’s a tall order for even the most experienced HR professional. Yet a recent survey found that 86 percent of supervisors have difficulty transitioning from being 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 process easier and more productive. Training new supervisors requires attention to communication strategies, knowing how to listen and lead, and finding ways for former employees to feel comfortable and thrive in their new role.

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.

Join us for insights into how to help your new leader thrive. You’ll also get practical tips and guidelines on how to best identify and train new supervisors or managers for the good of everyone involved.

We’ll also cover:
  • Common mistakes new supervisors make, and how to help your managers avoid them
  • Key traits great supervisors possess, and how to groom newly appointed team leaders to reach their inner star potential
  • Effective listening skills and tips on how supervisors should respond to workplace conflict
