NEW MANAGERS NEED A GREAT START
There are over 2 million people being promoted into management roles each year, and the transition from successful employee to successful manager is a difficult one. 60% of first-time managers fail because the skill set required for the job is entirely different! Our First-time Manager program sets new managers up for success by providing them with the training and skills needed to make a smooth transition.
When managers struggle, the cost is significant: high turnover, low morale, poor productivity, and more. Frequently, these performance challenges are because they don’t have the essential management skills they need to succeed. That’s why we created Blanchard Management Essentials®: a transformational leadership training program for new managers and those who need to sharpen the essential skills required to build positive relationships with team members, inspire engagement, and drive productivity.
60% OF NEW MANAGERS UNDERPERFORM during their first two years. Those that survive develop BAD HABITS that stay with them throughout their career.*
85% RECEIVE NO TRAINING prior to switching into the role of manager.*
