The New Manager JumpStart series provides immediately actionable skills for you to hit the ground running in your first ninety days as a new manager. You’ll start by gaining skills to navigate the transition from staff to supervisor, identify ways to communicate clearly, make a plan to manage your time and your new responsibilities, and plan and manage effective meetings. 

Once you’ve mastered these skills, you will be ready to move your team and your development to the next level with the New Manager JumpIn™ series.

Transition from Staff to Supervisor
Stressed about transforming from coworker to boss? Concerned about your new workload? Unsure how you’ll handle new resourcing responsibilities?

In this JumpStart course, you will practice the skills necessary to lead others, manage your new responsibilities, and transition into your new position of authority.

Communicate with Clarity
Struggling to persuade and motivate your team? Does your message fall flat? Are your conversations often confusing and unproductive? 

In this JumpStart course, you will use the Learn-Plan-Deliver-Confirm process to effectively communicate and improve the motivation and productivity of your team.

Prioritize and Manage Your Time
Need more hours in the day to get things done? Feel like something is always falling by the wayside? Find yourself wasting time on unimportant tasks? 

In this JumpStart course, you will identify your values and prioritize based on those values, align your time with your priorities, and create plans to meet your goals.

Manage Effective Meetings
Are you finding yourself holding meeting after meeting with no progress to show for them? Do your meetings get hijacked by the personal agendas of the same outspoken people? Are your meetings becoming unproductive social hours? 

In this JumpStart course, you will identify the purpose and need for a meeting, plan your agenda, actively manage your meeting, and evaluate the success of the meeting.
