Investing in first-time managers provides an organization with the opportunity to embed healthy leadership practices at the foot-hills of the leadership journey. It sets the new leaders up for success and lays the foundation for future growth. It touches employees at lower echelons directly, with potentially positive impact on organisation-wide engagement levels.
A world-class coaching team is on standby to guide them on this character forming journey.
