New to Management

A manager must display skills and behaviours which are very different from those required of a member of a team, and the transition needed to succeed is probably greater for someone moving into their first managerial role than it will be at any future point in their career.

This course will help you to move from a hands-on technical role to your first management position. It will address the skills and behaviours needed to lead a team effectively for the first time.
