Typically, high-performing employees get promoted to leadership roles without receiving any formal support or training which can result in catastrophic consequences for the first-time manager, the team and the organisation. 

    This workshop solves that issue and helps ensure new managers receive the knowledge, structure and skills they need make the transition into management successfully.
