Managers In Transition 

A breakthrough in achieving change strategy through people.

The Managers In Transition Program is a comprehensive approach to improving the performance of middle managers, first-line supervisors, and teams while preparing the organization to face the challenges present in today's workplace.

The four major areas which block attempts to foster organizational change are deficiencies in:

Job Skills - During change, first-line management does not understand the "why" and "how" of the tasks comprising their jobs.

Support - First-line management is not aware of or does not use the support available through the organization to accomplish their new mission.

Team Skills - Whether or not the workforce is self-directed, today's approach to work is one of performance based upon team activities.  First-line managers do not possess the skill or knowledge to effectively manage team-based functions, communicate ineffectively, have an ingrained fear of conflict, and are weak in coaching and problem solving.

 

How to survive and thrive during culture change


 

The "Managers In Transition" program is a custom-designed learning process consisting of measurable achievements that are relevant to the specific needs of the organization and the particular needs of first-line management.

The program consists of a series of instructional workshops, independent study activities, job-related assignments, mentoring meetings, counseling sessions, and assessments.

 

Mentoring for optimal performance


No Program can survive and grow without leadership and direction.  Consultants cannot provide it - it can only come from within the organization.  "Managers In Transition" requires support, involvement, and commitment of senior management through its "mentoring" program.  At the start, each participant is assigned to a senior level management mentor who oversees the participant's progress through each phase of the process.  Mentors are trained in their roles and responsibilities at the onset of the process at their own orientation workshop.

Mentoring is accomplished through structured meetings at which a specific aspect of the process is discussed.  Meetings are structured through published guides to insure that all elements are addressed.

 

Maximizing Individual Team and organizational goals


"Managers In Transition" is presented over a period of six months.  The core content is formed from a series of custom designed workshop guides, which are called "The Leader's Library", provided to each participant.  Real-world company-specific job problems, experiences, and requirements are built into every facet of the program.  Between workshops participants are required to complete job-relevant project assignments utilizing their newly acquired skills.  Participants present these projects and assignments during the workshops for review and discussion with outcomes becoming an actual part of the changing work environment.
