I want you to start your management career on the best foot possible. Managers (especially new ones) can often feel unsupported, unsure and stressed out. The HR consultancy, DDI says that new managers find the stress of the job is second only to getting a divorce! But it doesn’t have to be that way. Having the right tools in your tool belt is the first step to showing up as your best, positioning yourself as a resource, and creating value for your team and your organization. As a leader, your relationships and how you maintain them are what set you apart. This course is a comprehensive guide on how to navigate those workplace bonds and strengthen your brand as a leader in any industry.
If you are a people manager who is feeling unsure about your brand, and executive presence as a leader, then you may be feeling the pressure of wanting to know all the answers, being extremely supportive, and ensuring that your team is meeting their potential. In this course, you will learn the foundational frameworks for flexible leadership styles, leading from your strengths, and emotional intelligence, so that you can connect with and empower your team on a daily basis.
I created this Udemy course for you. It’s filled with real world anecdotes from my own experience as an executive coach and leadership development facilitator and manager for over 10 years. My course is filled with modern takes on age old management frameworks, and practical exercises so that you can implement each new technique into your work routines and relationships immediately.
This course is perfect for brand new managers and provides a deep dive refresher for veteran leaders who are looking to revive their brand. And the best part is all you need is an open mind, a desire to improve, and some basic knowledge about your company communication norms and performance processes.
Specifically, in this course you will:
Define your management brand
Master flexibility in your leadership
Build trusting manager/report relationships
Increase your influence with your team
Delegate with authority
Create systems for capturing performance data
Give great feedback
Reinforce your high performers
Perfect your performance reviews
In addition to learning some foundational management frameworks for flexible leadership, strengths-based leadership, and the power of What’s In It For Me (WIIFM), you will also complete several exercises to practice implementing your new knowledge. You will have access to dozens of prompts for asking the right questions, evaluating team relationships, mapping out feedback conversations and dozens of suggestions on how to drive performance without increasing costs.
As a communications, leadership and executive coach who has spent years creating individualized development plans for countless managers and business owners, it has always been my delight to see a leader find their unique style and increase their influence (and their impact). In this course I have compiled the most accessible strategies for you to define your unique style as well.
