Moving from Colleague to Manager Training Course

Who Would Benefit

Anyone who has or who is about to move from being part of a team to supervising or managing that team will benefit from this training course. 

Course Description

The delegate will learn to navigate the challenges of moving from being part of a team to now being that team’s manager. When someone is promoted from the heart of a team, as a colleague, to being the person in charge of that team, it presents a wealth of challenges that in some cases are obvious and in others cases far more subtle.


This workshop will help delegates to understand the intricacies of making the leap and give them the tools and knowledge to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible.
