We are delighted to share a set of webinars that focus on the First-Time Manager.  This program is ideal for L&D Professionals who are tasked with training and developing first time managers. Please join us once a month through November as we provide the opportunity to experience a series of six webinars. The purpose of these webinars is to enhance the expertise of Learning Development professionals on modern leadership training strategies.  The final webinar is listed at the end.

Developing First-Time Managers' Self-Awareness
Through AI-Based Role Play

Someone said that “self-awareness is all that matters.” That isn’t far from the truth: So many times First-Time Managers fall short in recognizing their actual performance, potential, strengths and skills.

It’s particularly true when they need to face uncomfortable tasks such as dealing with critical conversations in the early days of their new career’s step.

We, as human beings, are remarkably poor judges of ourselves and how we come across. It’s rare to get candid, objective feedback from colleagues, employees, and even friends and family.

How can you, as a professional in L&D, help leaders perceive the gaps in their self-awareness? After all, isn’t that one of the most important skills they should have?

How can you design programs that truly speed up the process of self-recognition and the path to self-awareness?

The answers to these and other relevant questions come from extensive research involving more than 100 large corporations and from years of practical fine-tuning of winning strategies for developing long lasting self-awareness.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • How a lack of self-awareness influences the daily performance of First-Time Managers in providing motivation and driving their reports
  • How a new disruptive methodology as digital role-play can shock First-Time Managers’ self-awareness and develop it for the long run
  • Which strategies can help you design your next training program focusing on self-awareness first
