Creating the Next Generation of Company Managers (Seattle)

Seattle, WA
Dec. 10, 2020 - Dec. 11, 2020

Give New Managers the Tools to Succeed



Becoming a new Manager is a challenge that requires new skills, new learning, and a new approach. Simply promoting your top-performing Technician, Installer, or Salesperson without training will not get the job done, and only sets the employee up to fail.

Creating the Next Generation of Company Managers will show new Managers how to transition from being an Employee and succeed in their new role. Owners who are adding their first Manager will find out how they can set up their team member to win.

By attending this class, new Managers will learn:

  • The difference between an Employee and a Manager, and how their role needs to change
  • New skills for time management, delegation, and prioritization
  • Strategies for mentoring their direct reports
  • Key financial metrics to measure success in Install and Service
  • How to be an effective leader for their department and the company
