90-day Impact Plan For New Managers and Supervisors

Are you a newly appointed manager or supervisor?  Or a prospective manager?  Were you recently given a new job assignment? This two-day intensive program is for managers, supervisors and high-potential staff who, at the start of their new assignments, want to create impact in their first 100 days.
 “The first 100 days” was first coined by US President F.D Roosevelt and has since then been adopted as a measure of accomplishments during this crucial period in a leader’s term.
A new manager’s initial behaviours, decisions and actions will be closely watched and scrutinized by everyone, from his team members, his peers and the appointing management of the company. Mistakes in the first few months  can  plant the seeds of failure in the future. In fact, a recent study,” The State of Frontline Leadership” cites that close to 40% of first-time managers ultimately fail.  In this program, a systematic approach to creating a positive image and bringing in early results will be explored in a highly engaging mode.
