Moving Into Management

From Managing Tasks to Managing Others

March 10, 2020 | 9 AM to 5 PM | Joy~Nostalg Hotel & Suites Ortigas Manila

Program Description

Transitioning into a new role can be a bit of a challenge. Adjustments have to be made as you take on a new title, especially if you see yourself lacking in skills and unsure of what you should expect and what lies ahead.


The same can be said about a new manager. At times, new managers assume their new roles without fully understanding what they are embarking on and what is required of them -- a change of mindset complemented by an advance set of skills. What companies have then are managers who lack confidence and are hesitant to assert their leadership.


Moving Into Management: From Managing Tasks to Managing Others is designed to help new managers understand and embrace the responsibilities that come with their new role and equip them with the skills they need to fulfill what is expected of them. This seminar will help them smoothly transition from managing tasks to managing people.
