BEING A TALENTED MANAGER (BATMAN) 

Objectives

This programme is specially designed for New Managers, enabling them to learn the ropes of management, leadership and how to get the best out of their employees.

Many newly-made managers continue to rely greatly on themselves for success as their past success was determined by how well they performed as individual contributors. However, managers cannot be a one-man show and expect to win. Great teams are developed when you engage and ensure every single member of your team is playing to win and is working at their highest productivity points. The ability to engage your people is a crucial element in being a great manager. This course teaches you how to:

i. Understand the new role as a manager and what it means to lead others.

ii. Leverage your strengths.

iii. Develop seemingly average people into first class performers.

iv. Keep your employees motivated and engaged through a 4 step process – Know Me, Care for Me, Focus Me and Grow Me.

 

Who Should Attend

Newly-promoted managers or supervisors, and specialists in specific areas of expertise who have teams reporting to them, and executives who are soon to be promoted into a role with direct reports.
