Transition to Management (TTM)

Many new managers, when placed in a position of authority over former peers, need to know how to handle this unfamiliar situation. They need to learn how to recognize the various work styles of those they manage and tailor their leadership approach accordingly. Persona GLOBAL®, Inc.’s Transition to Management (TTM) workshop gives them the skills necessary to fulfil their new responsibilities with confidence.        

The Manager as a Leader

Employees only produce quality work and give excellent service when they are inspired to do so through effective leadership. While effective managers keep the system on an even keel and are headed in the right direction, effective leaders provide the dynamics to make new things happen.

  • Create a climate of trust, which encourages openness, willingness to change, and commitment to the plan.
  • Show persistence in seeing their plans through to completion. They get things done!
