Often, new managers are chosen due to their high-performance as individuals, not because they have shown they have the knowledge and skills to manage. It is undoubtedly a challenge for anyone going into management for the first time but, without the right support when setting off on the journey, it will be all the more difficult – for the new manager and for their team.

We’re starting our 2023 event programme alongside Humber HR People, with a session to help provide you with the essential knowledge you need to help you thrive when moving into a people-leadership role, in turn setting your team up for success, too.

The session will offer a toolkit to equip you with the skills you need when it comes to managing for the first time, no matter your area of work. The toolkit will include everything from how to engage and motivate, to performance management, plus, how to deal with hiring and documentation and, what nobody likes doing…having difficult conversations and delivering constructive feedback.

The transition from ‘just one of the team’ to manager can present all sorts of new and unpredictable challenges, which require you to put your ability to delegate, cooperate and manage conflict to the test. There’s also the whole host of critical interpersonal skills you’ll need to have to hand. And, this is all while carrying on with your own role and responsibilities.

Join us and Humber HR People for an insightful session to equip you with the critical practical and personal tips and tricks you need, to set you and your team up for success, whether you’ve just started in management or are hoping to do so.

This event will cover:

  • Engagement – What is it?
  • Employment Contracts and Documents
  • Hiring the Right People
  • Performance Management – A process Approach
  • Tips on Giving Feedback
