(2 hours) This first workshop provides a framework for starting out in a new supervisory or management position. Learning how to balance the competing interests of people and departments/workgroups requires managers to have a command of facts and information to make effective decisions and take appropriate action. Beginning with caution at first is critical in making the right impression. It is actions, not your words, that count most. Through actions, a new manager’s attitude “speaks” so loudly it trumps and overpowers anything one says.
