About this Course

Welcome to your career in management. But most important…Welcome to leadership. 

Even for the most gifted individuals, the process of becoming a leader is a rigorous and many times an exhausting journey. The rewards, however, can be enormous. I surveyed a group of managers across many disciplines and asked the question, “As a new manager, what do you wish you learned early in your career?” What follows in this course, is a result of the responses, as well as my personal experience coaching and mentoring new managers. 

I will begin by asking you to be patient with yourself. You do not develop leadership skills overnight. It takes practice, it takes trying new things, it takes making mistakes.  Yes, sometimes you will fail. That is ok. It is ok to acknowledge when something doesn’t work, it is ok to celebrate and build on your successes. 

I have broken this course into individual modules. These are small bite sized modules that you can view either one after the other, or one at a time as you drink your morning coffee. Feel free to jump around and view the modules that are of the most importance to you. Take what works, challenge what doesn’t, try new things. 

The Chapters include: 

  • Introduction to Management
  • Developing Your Leadership Style 
  • Leadership Responsibilities
  • Leadership Communication
  • Team Development
  • Your Growth and Development
  • Managers Toolkit

I’m excited to join you in this journey.
