Coaching for First-Time Managers

Being a first time manager is a daunting task, especially since most newly promoted managers are expected to "hit the ground running" without much training or guidance as to what that actually entails.

It's an uphill battle

As a new manager, you may face many challenges, like:

  • Dealing with resentment or jealousy from team members who felt they should have been promoted instead of you,
  • Managing people who are older or more experienced than you,
  • Inheriting a team that you did not pick yourself,
  • Needing to prove yourself in a position you have no experience in (i.e. management),
  • Having difficulty delegating tasks or trusting your team to do what you can do better yourself, and
  • Being unsure of the best ways to motivate and manage your team for top performance.

These are not trivial challenges that can be resolved with generic, Googled answers. These challenges require a customized, one-on-one, problem solving approach with someone who has been there before and can help you see the best way forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions do I need?

This coaching package is 100% customizable to your needs. If you want some help with a specific matter, one or two sessions may be enough. If you would like ongoing assistance over a longer period, that's your call. We can always start with one session and decide from there!

Will the coaching be done in person or virtually?

The coaching is conducted virtually via Microsoft Teams or Zoom. If in-person sessions are required, travel fees will apply.

What is your cancellation policy?

If a scheduled session is not cancelled more than 24 hours before the session start, that session is forfeit and not refundable. If you wish to cancel all sessions going forward, you will be refunded for the sessions you've paid for already, but haven't used yet.

I'm not sure if this is for me.
