New manager coaching program

No class found


Designed specifically for new managers, this coaching program helps new managers develop key management skills and work through common challenges faced by new managers.

This coaching program is based on FMI’s popular Management Skills for New Managers course and offers a practical, work based approach to developing management skills.

The program is typically delivered over a six month period and can be started before the participant transitions into their new role as a manager or after they have started.

The coach works with the participant to identify key content areas to focus on, working through learning objectives and tailoring the program to suit their specific learning needs and working context. Between each session the participant applies learning to their work and is able to review and evaluate their performance with the coach.

This coaching program helps to develop knowledge, improve capability and build confidence for new managers.
