Making the move from colleague to manager

A workshop designed to explores some of the key things that you can do to make the transition from mate to manager easier.

Webinar Description

For many people, the transition from being someone's friend to being their manager can be a challenging task, with a lot of potentially awkward situations, but there are ways you can make this transition less painful. Moving from being ‘one of the boys’ to being their manager can potentially damage your reputation as a manager and/or your relationships with those who were previously your teammates.

So, if you do get that promotion, what can you do? It can be difficult to change the dynamic and it's sure to be uncomfortable for you at times - especially during the beginning - but there are ways you can make it easier.

What will the Webinar cover?



The full reality of this transition dawns on you, and a whole host of unexpected emotions, concerns, and fears surface.



We will tell you why it’s your actions that will define you as a leader.



Good management is not about measuring yourself against others but supporting them on a day-to-day basis.

Who is the Webinar for?

This webinar is aimed at all those who have a got a promotion but are not sure how to handle this transition.
