How to take ownership over your first 90 days as a manager—and build a strong foundation to help you lead a successful and engaged team.
Not looking to be a failure? We’ve got you covered.
In 90 days, you can create a New Manager Action Plan to maximize your performance, set achievable goals with a clear vision that builds an engaged team, and implement open communication including feedback loops for long-term inspiration and motivation.
Having a clear plan for your first 90 days will help mitigate the common mistakes that most new managers make—and build the foundation for your success (and your team’s success) long term.
Learn what it takes to become a great manager.
+ Losing trust and respect among your team
Setting unclear goals, with no plan of how to achieve them
+ Having a low-performing team who doesn’t collaborate well
Being burdened by the
emotional and physical toll, as well as, the pressure of being a manager and the anxiety to succeed
Not knowing how to
communicate or solicit feedback from your direct reports
Do any of these sound familiar? If so, watch the video below.
Great managers aren’t born. They’re made.
Take ownership of your first 90 days as a new manager by enrolling in The New Manager Manual. You’ll build a strong foundation that will help you lead a successful team today, and in the future.
