Enable the Transition to Leadership for First-Time Managers

Move beyond a do’s and don’ts training deck to create a robust first-time manager (FTM) development program.

Onsite Workshop

Without an effective first-time manager (FTM) development plan:

  • Investment into leadership development programs are often not sustained.
  • Poor management and leadership can lead to low productivity.
  • Low business-based decision making, organizational savvy, and talent development competencies in frontline managers.

An effective first-time manager (FTM) development plan:

  • Lessens the steep learning curve FTMs often face alone.
  • Increases employee productivity, reduces voluntary turnover, and impacts end-consumer satisfaction.
  • Improves employee engagement through stronger employee-manager relationships.
