About The Event


Course Overview

It may give you happiness, but may not always be easy when you are promoted as a manager with staff reporting to you. Often you are promoted based on your current skills sets for a job well done and the expectation that you can perform equally well at the next higher level. You might only have seen managerial actions of others to guide you. Sometimes the transition is easy, but more often managers who now face the role of having to direct others and communicate with many different levels and departments can soon find themselves stretched.

This course is designed to help the first time manager ‘fit the pieces together and see the bigger picture’. It is designed to develop the knowledge and skills in the first time manager necessary to manage and supervise staff to ensure the objectives of the organization are met, while developing the team and individuals to enhance their performance. This course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the principles of managerial excellence.
