Prospect Development and People Development: Becoming an Effective Manager

Wednesday, April 3, 2024

1:00 PM-2:30 PM ET




Have you recently (or maybe not so recently) been promoted to a management position and realized you’ve never received any formal training in overseeing and motivating individuals and teams? This interactive workshop will explore how effective management intersects with the work of prospect development. In the first part of the workshop, you will examine the compelling research on the profound role that managers play in so many aspects of the employee experience, and how to embrace the responsibility. You will learn a dynamic framework to help you identify both your managerial strengths and weaknesses, and to examine which manager skill domains your organization needs from you most right now.  In the second part of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to build your toolkit for people development.  First you will learn important distinctions between managing for performance and managing for development. Then, you’ll learn techniques and approaches for facilitating high impact 1-on-1’s and helping your people grow along their career trajectory.
