First-time Manager Training to Develop Essential Skills – Problem Solving. Decision Making. Delegation. Internal Communications. Meeting Management. Managing Yourself. MBA Skills.
This course is designed to help students develop management skills, and better understand different leadership styles and fundamental business concepts. Students will follow the story of Erik, who has just accepted a new position as a product manager for a candy maker. He is excited to take on this role, but has no idea where to begin!
Erik needs to familiarize himself with the skills necessary to be a successful leader, as well as basic business terms and functions he will use in his daily routine. Luckily, he is friends with Susan who has an MBA degree and is willing to help.
Susan explains how to organize and develop the department Erik will be responsible for, including how to hire and retain the right employees. She demonstrates how to properly manage time and expectations, as well as workplace conflict. The most common business types and departments are also reviewed, as are some business basics, including economics, finance, accounting, ethics and law.
By the conclusion of their interaction, Erik has all of the tools he needs to succeed in his new position. Students, too, will have an excellent understanding of what is expected of business leaders, including how to succeed in a managerial role.
