You will learn how to create an effective in-house management training program with a small budget. 

Organizations continue to promote technically proficient employees into management roles. So how do we get these newly promoted leaders up to speed? For many organizations, these new leaders learn by skinning their knees and making mistakes along the way -- often costing the organization in lower productivity and turnover. Progressive-thinking organizations recognize managing people has a unique skill set and the key to retention and productivity is good front line managers. A holistic management development program will give these new managers the foundation they need to succeed. No money in your budget for training? Don't fret! You can develop a meaningful management development program in-house using your own leaders as your training team. That's exactly what we did at a global pharmaceutical company. This session will show you how to:

  • Select resources and build the curriculum.
  • Create excitement and “good buzz”around the program.
  •  Ensure active participation and commitment through a program that participants enjoy.
