New to managing a team

Congratulations on becoming a manager, all your hard work has paid off. So, what happens next!! For many people, they are left alone to find their way, it’s a sink or swim scenario. For others, they will join Sean McLoughney on the “New to managing a team – my first 100 days” workshop. This workshop will help accountants who are new to managing people to put a plan in place and gives them some frameworks and techniques to manage their new team.

In reality, most people who are new to the role of managing people will struggle with the transition from one of the team to the leader of the team, it’s a normal reaction. By joining their peers on this workshop, they will be able to discuss common issues and challenges and more importantly leave with a practical 100-day action plan.
