Workshop A – Management Skills Trainings
Practical Training Strategies to Turn your Best Performers into Powerful Leaders: Exploring the Key Factors of Success of Transitions from Technical Experts to Business Managers
This interactive half-day workshop will take the participants onto a journey to develop strategic trainings aimed at building managerial capabilities within young SSCs’ top performers.
More or less every SSC organization is dealing with the necessity to promote young leaders to management positions. But very often, the step towards increased responsibilities is hard to take for technical professionals lacking experience in managing people and office politics.
By taking part in this 3-hour session, you will discuss, exchange on, challenge and run through the training needs at stake, from mindset adaptation and change management to the ability to take business decisions and bear the consequences of it.
By the end of it, you should be able to have a clearer view on the topics to be covered by such trainings when supporting your colleagues into their “manager transition”, including, but not limited to:
- Improved direct / indirect communication
- Stakeholder relationship management
- Business acumen
- Soft skills and behavioral impact
- Office politics
- Perception vs. reality
- Responsibility package (with power comes great responsibilities)
- Company culture embrace
- Actor vs. follower
- Care vs. realize
