Transition to Management (Online)

The full Transition to Management course has been adapted to be run virtually. Details below!



The ‘first line manager’ role is unique in organisations as this person is the one level who manages ‘non-managers’. This brings its own set of hurdles to overcome, and for people new to managing others there is a lot to learn.

This course is aimed at those new to management; those with about 6 months experience as a manager; or those you are looking to promote in the next few months.


This programme will help new managers learn about:

  • how their job changes the friendship and management relationship

  • the key challenges ahead so they can avoid early mistakes

  • how not to do it all themselves and delegate things to help

  • managing workloads and deadlines, especially customer demands

  • dealing with the early stages of people problems and conflict

  • developing their team through coaching and team work

  • running team briefings

  • giving 1-2-1 reviews and coaching feedback

  • managing the day-to-day priorities of their team whilst managing their own day job

  • developing a ‘tool-kit’ of techniques and skills which they can use to cope with issues they will face as they grow into their new job

Overall, being a new manager can be tough; and a practical toolkit of best practice do’s and don’ts will really help new managers avoid mistakes, and feel more equipped to cope in the early days.

Who should attend

  • Team leaders, supervisors and project managers with up to one years’ experience in their new role
  • High potentials who look to be promoted in the next 6 months
  • Technical and project leads who would like to ‘up skill’ on their management techniques
