Course Description

Leadership & Management Skills for New Managers

Successful managers practice both strong management and leadership skills. Leadership skills are not the same as management skills. Leadership skills are influence skills. The ability to influence bosses, co-workers, teams, and outcomes has a profound impact on your success as a (new) manager.

This course focuses on leadership skills and competencies required for managers to manage their teams effectively and deliver projects successfully. We will cover the differences and the commonalities between management and leadership. Participants will learn how to lead from the middle of the organization, how to lead down and across; the core values of leadership; interpersonal communication skills; influencing skills; and team-building skills. The focus will be on building leadership and management competencies to transform successful managers into effective leaders.

At the conclusion of the course, you will:

  • Learn the core values of leadership
  • Define Leadership vs. Management
  • Learn the reasons managers fail
