Move from individual contributor to a leader of others, whether they directly report to you or not.

Transitioning from an individual contributor to one who supervises others is challenging for almost everyone. Suddenly, we go from being responsible for just our own performance to that of one or more other professionals. Now, we have to manage our own workload while also ensuring our direct reports have what they need to be successful – both individually and as part of a larger team. This session is designed to help supervisors navigate the sometimes unfamiliar and often choppy waters of management, building the foundation they will need to become successful leaders.
