New Manager Training

Moving from ME to US

An important milestone for every employee in her climb up the corporate ladder, is when she steps into the role of a first time manager.

The natural instinct for most people at this stage of their careers is to first fall back upon those same skills that made them so successful as an individual contributor. But lo and behold, try hard as they may, the same skills suddenly seem completely inadequate while they grapple with their new role as a team manager. The parameter for measuring success for them has subtly changed from "doing a great job" to "getting a great job done". And that makes all the difference!

Majority of the managers who are promoted do not receive any formal training on their new role as managers. Little wonder then that they struggle in their roles! The skills needed to succeed as a people manager, are a whole new paradigm:

Transitioning from being an individual contributor to a people manager
Coaxing out great performances from team members
Communicating effectively with the team
The art of influencing others
Coaching for performance
Creating a positive team climate
Delegating for growth and success
Unfortunately, often managers end up doing the tasks of team members one or two rungs below their job profiles. So how can we help an individual contributor transition seamlessly into his new role as an effective manager?

The New Manager Learning Journey by FocusU aims to address this gap through an innovative, experiential and hands-on design which gives new managers a flavor of managing teams and the related aspects as mentioned above.

  • "I attended the “Leading for Success” training program and wanted to share my feedback. It’s a 2 day training program and I can say it was less than 3 hours of class room session and the remaining hours were full of practical session. The best part is, we were all asked to perform multiple activities and concepts were explained by observing us during the course of the activity. So there was no boring class room kind of lecture and the learning was from your own action.

    As I already informed, I have attend this training like 2 years back and I am sure I did not enjoy the training as much as I did now. Many thanks to you/ L&D for organizing this type of session and do pass on my special thanks to the FocusU team for an interactive session.

    I think it might be worth to spread the word that it’s an all-new training however just carrying the same old name, so that some old lads like me gives a try."
