Becoming a first-time manager is one of the most challenging and critical career transitions. New managers are often chosen from high-performing individuals. These highly proficient doers quickly become struggling new managers, without the methods or skills needed to succeed. The failure rates are daunting.

Blanchard has decided to help first-time managers overcome this challenge by showing them the essential skills they need to get off to a great start.

Based on the #1 best-selling book The New One Minute Manager, participants are introduced to the three secrets of successful managers: Goal Setting, Praising, and Redirecting. The program develops those secrets into a conversation framework that is easy for new managers to understand and master.
