Debunking Development Myths: What It Takes to Train New Managers in the Digital Age

“You’re excellent at your front-line role. We’re going to promote you so you can teach others how to be great at that job, too. Now, good luck!” Sound familiar?

Typically, however, what made them successful as individual contributors is likely not what will make them successful as managers. If organizations want their new managers to be successful in getting results through others, they need to think differently when it comes to helping managers develop.

In this high-energy webinar, ICC experts discuss the:

  • Data that builds the business case for focusing development efforts on supporting new managers
  • Essential skills new managers need to learn the second — if not before — they are promoted (some of these skills may surprise you!)
  • Critical steps organizations can take to ensure that the learning for new managers sticks (HINT: traditional training is NOT the answer).

Leading After Layoffs: Engaging Remaining Employees You’re Relying On to Carry On

It’s critically important company leaders do not forget everyone impacted after a layoff, including the remaining employees. After all, these are the essential people a company is relying on to carry on the business.

It’s clear that how the layoff is handled, how employees who are let go are treated and how the surviving workforce is supported are the key factors in determining the organization’s ability to rebound to ensure ongoing viability.

In this live webinar, learn what to expect and how to lead through change after a layoff to support the critically important employees the organization is relying on to bring operations to a “new normal.”

Leading in Ambiguous Times: Behaviors Managers Need to Lead Effectively During Uncertainty

Leaders and managers are required to navigate through uncertainty as the new normal. It’s critical now, more than ever, for them that they lead in drastically different ways than they ever have before. As they now navigate the ambiguity of “what’s next” in the fallout from COVID-19, they will be tested by situations for which blueprints do not exist, in which there is no such thing as “business as usual.” Leadership development efforts within organizations must, therefore, pivot sharply to support leaders and managers in tackling unforeseen challenges. In order to lead direct reports, teams and entire organizations in this new normal in which constant change will be the rule versus the exception, the learning curve for leaders will be steep. What are the capabilities and behaviors they must develop and implement now to lead effectively? In this engaging webinar, experts from ICC share the behaviors leaders need to learn and adopt now in order to be successful as uncertainty continues.

The Future of Leadership Development & Training
