ATD will release new research focused on manager development—specifically on professionals who are new managers. Topics that will be covered include candidate selection, eligibility, training topics, benefits and challenges, delivery methods, effectiveness, and budgets. 

Key findings from the report include:

Overall, 70 percent of respondents had a new manager development program. Of those that did not currently have a program, 54 percent planned to offer a training program or resources to new managers in the next two years. 

The primary goal of new manager development programs was better performance by the new manager, with 85 percent citing it as a major goal. Better performance by the new manager's employees was cited as a major goal by 62 percent. Continuity of organizational culture and values was a goal for 69 percent. 

New managers were most likely to receive training in communication skills, providing feedback, and performance management. 


Primary Capability Covered: Career & Leadership Development

Participation in this event qualifies for one (1) professional development point for initial certification or recertification of the APTD and/or CPTD credential.
