One day course for managers who are transitioning to a different leadership role.


This course is designed as a practical guide for managers who are transitioning to a different leadership role. The first 100 days are a critical time to establish clear directions for the way you will manage. It is both an opportunity to launch yourself forward and a time of risk if you are not perceived to be on the path to success in the role.

This course enables you to review what you must do and prioritise what actions you should take first. It provides practical checklists to help you ensure that you optimise your first 100 days in a new role.
