This course came at a great time – I had a one individual move on to a new opportunity, and was onboarding new team members. This training encouraged me to consider the short- and long-term planning that needs to go into their careers, as well as helped me take an honest look at whether I was doing that for my current team to ensure I was helping them make the most of opportunities. It also reminded me of the many hats I wear as a manager, and how they all play a part in my day-to-day operations, as well as overall strategic planning – multiple skill sets can show up in a variety of ways and that’s okay! You don’t have to be one type of manager at all times.
I highly encourage new managers to engage in this course as they prepare to care about the careers of those they manage (particularly if they’ve only been focused on their own development before moving into a management role). Even experienced managers can use this course as a refresher of what they should bring to their team beyond task management and performing annual reviews.

Still on the fence?
If you are nervous about trying something new, I don't blame you! It has been more than ten years since I first stepped into a management position. I may have had natural leadership qualities, but I was unprepared for the reality of managing people.
People management is messy and unpredictable. Yet all the leaders I admired seemed to never experience anything like what I was facing. I could not have been more wrong. ALL leaders face situations, teams and environments that are challenging at times. It is what we do in those situations and how we manage those challenges that sets us up for future success. Leading is not about being stoic. It involves rolling up your sleeves, getting your hands dirty and being part of your team.
I did so many things wrong in my early days because I didn't know how to set the boundaries that are required; how to have those difficult conversations and how to be both a leader and a people manager.
I attended hundreds or hours of training so you don't have to. Starting with this first course I am distilling down what I have learned to their essentials. Providing you the head start I wish I had years ago.
I am grateful that you are taking time to invest not only in yourself, but in your team.
