Course Detail: TS101 - How to Go from 'Doer' to Manager Successfully
Did you know that 30% to 50% of first-time managers fail in their new job? Clearly, going from a 'doer' role to a manager role is a challenge. Unfortunately, being a successful programmer, salesperson, engineer, or other professional does not guarantee success in management.

Why do so many fail? Oftentimes, it's simply due to lack of training. Technical, operational and functional skills are significantly different than the skills required to successfully manage people. When you're in charge, you're not just following directions; you're giving them. And you're not only responsible for accurate and timely delivery of your projects; you have to help others keep their projects on track.

If you've recently been appointed to a new role as a manager, or are about to be promoted, this course will teach you how to make the transition as successfully and seamlessly as possible. You'll learn how to avoid many common problems that can sabotage new managers, as well as what it takes to get your team up and running as quickly as possible. You'll walk away from this course with a clear pathway toward better results - and management success.
