Teach the Secrets of a Successful Transition to Management

Support your first-time managers in developing the leadership skills and confidence needed to transition effectively into their new roles.

Making the jump from individual contributor to manager is a transition that every leader must make, but becoming a first-time manager can be challenging. New leaders need to reconsider the way they think about success. The skills, knowledge, and perspectives that helped them get the new leadership role are not necessarily what will help them excel or advance in their careers.

Too many first-time managers get no support in this transition and struggle in their new roles, and their teams suffer as a result. Data supports this:

  • 60% report not receiving development
    50% are rated as “ineffective” by their superiors
    40% fail within the first 18 months
