The Reality of Being a First-time Manager
The first-time manager often doesn't realize how much their new role differs from that of an individual contributor. They may have misconceptions about what being a new boss entails, and be surprised to learn that the skills and methods required for success as an individual contributor and those needed for success as a new manager are very different. This course describes some of the myths about managing people and their corresponding truths in order to clarify what a new leader really does. It also points to the typical demands and constraints of a manager's job. Finally, it describes strategies for dealing with common mistakes when managing for the first time.

Facing Challenges as a First-time Manager
High expectations are often placed on a new manager. Along with these expectations comes the pressure to prove you are capable of being the boss and managing people effectively. When managing for the first time, establishing credibility early and building new working relationships can go a long way in helping you succeed in adjusting to your new responsibilities. This course describes ways to manage former colleagues effectively and establish credibility as a first-time manager. You'll also learn how to balance conflicting expectations as a new leader.

Leadership Transitions: Becoming a Frontline Manager
Making the transition from individual contributor to frontline leader can be a daunting adjustment. Moving into a leadership role involves more than just getting a new title.

In this course, you'll learn how to adjust your mindset, develop your delegation skills, and build relationships to succeed in your new leadership role.

Leadership Transitions: Moving into Senior Leadership
Transitioning into senior leadership can be challenging. The approach, the attitudes, or the mindset that worked well in a mid-level management role might not be sufficient in a more senior role. A successful transition is often about discarding the old way of doing things and developing a new approach and mindset. It's about acquiring new skills, new perspectives, and leadership maturity. In this course, you'll learn the necessary attributes of leadership maturity, the qualities needed for successful functional area management, and strategies and best practices for upper-level delegation and transition into the leadership of leaders.
