I recently had the opportunity to join Ryan Changcoco of Association for Talent Development (ATD) for a discussion called TalentNext, ACCEL, and How Did I Not See This Coming.
We explored the importance of skills versus mindset for new managers, why both are critical but how, historically, one was focused on more than the other and why that’s changing.
All new managers face stumbling blocks. And when they do they go searching for answers. Historically one set of resources has been more widely available than the other. And while both are important, we’re starting to see a shift to a more balanced focus on the two combined.
If you’re a new manager, HR or L&D professional, or decision-maker for your organization, I encourage you to tune in. You’ll learn:
- Why both skills and mindset are crucial for a new manager to learn and why we’re seeing a shift toward one over the other.
- The main stumbling blocks new managers face and how to overcome them.
- The most effective way to design development programs to help new managers grow and succeed.
Since immediate managers typically have the largest impact on an employee’s fulfillment in the workplace, it’s critical that organizations invest the appropriate time and resources in ensuring their managers are successful.
