First Time Managers: Know The Essentials

A recent report from the Chartered Institute of Management states that 82% of new managers who enter management positions have not had any proper management and leadership training – they are “accidental managers”*.

We have put together an insightful one-day workshop aimed at providing first time, new and aspiring managers with the essential skills to become an effective manager. 

Delivered via Zoom on Tuesday 16th July 2024, come along and learn the fundamentals of what it takes to become an effective manager. There are only 16 spaces so book now!


09:00:00 -  17:00:00
The registration period is from 07,Feb,2024 08:00:00 to 15,Jul,2024 08:00:00

Event description:

Rewarding a high performing employee with a promotion to manage their peers is a widely accepted business practice. However, the transition from successful employee to successful manager isn’t as straightforward as a new job title and a pay rise. Your best salesperson can become your worst sales manager because they don’t possess what is a completely new set of skills automatically on promotion. 

Our Accidental Managers workshop prepares new managers for success by providing the relevant skills to effectively manage, motivate and lead their team.

Who should attend?

New, aspiring and first time managers as well as those who have gained a management position without training

During the workshop, you will learn:

  • Understanding the fundamental characteristics of Leadership
  • Effective Communication
  • How to get the best out of your team
