From team member to team leader (25 March 2020), British Dental Association, Wednesday, 25. March 2020

A workshop for anyone who is thinking about moving into their first team leader or line management role.
Have you thought about what happens when you have your first management role? You may have been working away quite happily as part of a team and now the opportunity has arisen where you may have to manage the people you were once your colleagues / friends. Organisations constantly give people their first line management role because the individual has been identified as being good at their day job, not necessarily being good with people. People skills are a very different skillset to process and tasks. This 1-day introduction makes you think about the challenges ahead, and whether managing people is right for you. There are many people who are in management positions who shouldn’t be! Not because they are bad at it (well, sometimes!) but because they just wanted to be good at their role, and then they become the ‘reluctant manager’.

Learning Objectives
This workshop will help you:

Identify the people challenges facing you

Breakdown the role of the manager

Identify your management styles and when to use them

Understand that management isn’t a popularity contest!

To hold difficult conversations

Set the expectations for your new team

Explore motivations – yours and your team

Know how to measure whether you are a good people manager

Above all, this workshop will help you to explore if managing people is right for you and will get you prepared to have those first conversations.

Anyone who has just moved into their first team leader role or who is planning to in the near future.

A one-day workshop. This day is limited to a maximum of 20 participants, so individuals get a mix of team and 1:1 time with the facilitator.
