Develop new team leaders and supervisors to ensure they have the essential skills to transition into their new role.

FMI has trained thousands of managers over the last 20 years and offers practical management training and coaching for New Team Leaders and Supervisors.

Key challenges faced by New Team Leaders and Supervisors

  • New team leaders and supervisors may, for the first time in their career, be taking on responsibility for the performance of other people as well as themselves.
  • The new role is usually more demanding than anticipated
  • There is often a gap between existing expectations, capabilities and experience and those required for the new position. This can be stressful for them, their manager, their team and the organisation.
  • New team leaders and supervisors need to foster camaraderie within the team whilst also settling themselves into their new position.
  • Learning to manage others for the first time requires an adjustment to the way you work, how you perceive yourself and how others perceive you.
  • Many have received little to no formal training and so they have limited resources or tools to draw upon when needed.
  • They may need to adjust their communication and interpersonal style when communicating about different topics with different stakeholders.
  • There may be a lack of understanding about policies, procedures and frameworks that they must work with.
  • They may struggle to identify the most appropriate approach to take when dealing with issues.
  • They may not know how to respond when conflict or other challenges arise.
