“First-time managers so rarely receive the guidance and training they need to be effective. We often assume that management or leadership skills are something people are born with. They're not. These are teachable skills. Blanchard's first-time manager program will help an entire generation of new leaders get off to a winning start.”

Karen Adams, President and CEO, Alberta Pensions Services

“Training for first-time managers is critical to provide both the tools and the confidence to step quickly into a new role. This course provides practical knowledge that can help prevent ‘rookie mistakes’ and expedite trust between a supervisor and team member. Newly promoted managers won’t be wondering in the back of their minds, “Am I doing this right?” They can have the confidence to communicate in a planned, distinct manner from the get-go.”

Rosanna Watson, Global Supply Chain Training Manager, Freeport-McMoRan

“Becoming a first-time manager is a defining moment in time and if met with the right approach can certainly change the trajectory of your career. I believe the key is in taking your relationships a step deeper and earning trust as a respected leader. For me, this starts and ends with the quality and depth of conversations with those I lead. Blanchard’s First-Time Manager program provides exactly the information that will help new leaders start their new careers with confidence.”
