Skill development doesn’t happen by accident, but targeted, competency-based leadership skill development pays off.

This webcast will provide the business case for investing in first-time managers, who, when well prepared, can help you drive meaningful results, improve performance on key metrics, and aid in the retention of your people assets. You’ll learn how to empower new leaders with knowledge, skills, and experiences that add value and confidence to their daily work.

You will also learn:

  • why the things frontline managers pay attention can help or hurt business performance
  • why investing in emerging leaders and frontline supervisors pays off, and several practices to make the development “stick”
  • the benefits of virtual development and just-in-time learning.
