New Managers - Lifeboat

A common challenge that exists in many organizations is that people are promoted due to their specialist expertise and are expected to then lead a team to perform to a certain standard.

Our new to management programmes is ideal for new managers to help them have an easy transition from a successful operations person to successful manager. The new responsibility requires completely different skills. Therefore, our manager training programme equips the participants with the training and skills needed.

Be a Lifeboat: How can someone be a lifeboat?

When a leader is a lifeboat, they must ensure that they are thinking of their followers. They are keeping them afloat and helping them out. A leader is someone that can fill many roles. When you are having trouble doing something, who do you go to? Your leader! A good leader can show you things you didn’t know, and help you do things that you are having trouble with. The Lifeboat Programme will suit Middle Managers who may have a larger team reporting into them and who have to help solve more complex problems with their team members, while all the time helping them to learn and ultimately, save themselves!
