Course description

Management Basics for Frontline and First-Time Managers

When new managers are given high quality training, they are able to avoid rookie mistakes that have the potential to derail promising careers. The learning curve from team member to manager is steep and full of pitfalls.

SLDI has put this course together in order to flatten out this learning curve and accelerate the progress of newcomers to management. The course emphasizes the skills and principles that are key for successful management at all levels.

This course will be particularly valuable for those without a management background or who did not receive management training as part of the preparation for their career. The training will also be helpful for supervisors who are being promoted to management positions.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for lower managers and supervisors
