Course overview

There are lots of similarities between a team-leadership role and a management role, but there are also many differences. It’s a considerable step up on the corporate ladder, and one your new managers need to prepare for in order to succeed. While both entail managing and motivating more junior colleagues, a managerial role also involves a lot more responsibility and potential stress.

Preparing to take on that new position requires getting to grips with new responsibilities and understanding how they differ from those of a previous role. During this course, your new managers will find out key differences between a team-leadership and a managerial role and the challenges they may face as they take that step up. They’ll also learn how to maximize the potential opportunities provided by the transition.
