Training and Development for Young Managers and First Time Leaders

Everyone has something to learn. That’s especially true for employees who have never supervised other people. Training and development for young managers and first time leaders is different. Whether you’re in Cincinnati, Jacksonville or anywhere in America, executive coaching and training from Krissi Barr will put your managers on the fast track to success.

A Foundation of Knowledge

It all starts by laying a foundation. Given the diverse educational backgrounds, start by making sure everyone knows the basics.

  • What leadership looks like.
  • How to build trust.
  • The best way to make good decisions.
  • Communications dos and don’ts.
  • How to think strategically.

 

The Experience Fast Track

There are two ways people can learn. One is to let them figure it out on their own.

There is an upside to letting a first time leader figure out how to lead people. When they learn something on their own, they feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. New managers will try different things and make rookie mistakes. Some will be painful. But eventually they will learn. The downside of all this is it can take a long time and be very costly.

The second way people can learn is to show, tell and involve. This way a young leader’s experience becomes vivid, memorable and sticky. They learn faster and make fewer costly mistakes.

Executive Coaching & Training

Ben Franklin wisely said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Krissi Barr has taken this approach to heart. She’s worked with hundreds of HiPo and on-the-rise employees to get them involved and put them on a fast track to success. That’s why her training and development for young managers and first time leaders works. If you have employees who would benefit from either group or individualized attention, call Krissi Barr.
