The elusive world of management is something we are never formally taught, yet expected to know and master throughout our careers. The shift from individual contributor to manager of people is both an exciting and overwhelming milestone in one’s career.

In Part 2 of this 4-part Management Bootcamp, Leadership Coach Kathy McConnell (B'86) will explain how successful leadership is about inspiring and enabling others to do their best work together. She will cover strategies that new managers need to embrace if they wish to be most effective, including:

-Strengths-based leadership (link individual strengths to roles and identify gaps)
-Setting expectations and holding people accountable…and inspired!
-Controlling your messaging (repositioning yourself when you’re promoted from within)
-Setting up meetings for success
-Coaching staff for ongoing professional development
