Are you an aspiring Manager or a newly-appointed Manager?

Does it excite but worry you? Then this Fast Track Programme for New Managers is the key you need to succeed and thrive:

  • Are you worried about the transition to managing other people?
  • Do you feel excited, yet terrified in your new role, daunted by tasks and responsibilities you have never had before?
  • Do you feel out of depth, lacking in confidence, and fear being seen to be a failure in your new role (maybe even suffering from Imposter Syndrome)?
  • Are you concerned about juggling all your tasks on top of monitoring the work of your team?
  • Are you worried about not knowing how best to manage the members of your team?
  • Do you sometimes feel there is no one at work to turn to with your worries?
  • Would you find it useful to have someone on hand, external to the organisation, to discuss your concerns, issues and ideas?

If you have said yes to any of the above, then here is the programme for you:

This is an instructor-led, group training and one-to-one coaching programme, which can be run online or face-to-face, depending where you are located.  It is designed specifically to help new managers, or those who have not received any management training, lead their teams more confidently, effectively and productively. It will give you the support, tools and techniques to help you to feel more confident (and less stressed) about your role; to interact better with your team, peers, and those senior to you; to manage your team more effectively, build trust and get them to work more productively and cohesively to achieve goals.

Janet Baker 211x300 1Instructor Bio:

My name is Janet Baker and, many years ago, I was like you, a newly appointed manager. Having previously been a very successful team leader, I thought the transition would be straightforward. However, reality was very different.

The support I had been promised was not forthcoming, the team was divided, some were resentful. I felt totally out of my depth, suffered from imposter syndrome and longed for my old job. I was so stressed! Over time, I ploughed my way through the problems, gained experience amid much heartache and hard work, and met challenges face on.

Fast forward in time, I have now been a successful Training Consultant and Coach for the last 20 years, putting that knowledge and experience to good use. I have worked with people in management of all levels in a wide variety of organisations, training and coaching them to help them become more effective in their roles.

Don’t struggle through like I did. Let me pass this knowledge and experience on to you to fast track your way to being a more confident manager by giving you the tools and support you need in your new role.

What can this programme do for you and your team?

There are six training modules, plus a series of coaching sessions:

Step 1: Validation

Why you? Understanding your new role as a manager, what is expected of you and when, and feeling more confident about being in that post
