Going from a Peer to a Manager and Getting Respect

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Use the power of influence to become a successful new manager
  • Utilize active listening to gain a keen understanding of former peers and superiors 
  • Effectively communicate to inspire and persuade/negotiate with different personality styles
  • Boost your emotional intelligence to thrive in your new position
  • Attain the trust and respect of your former peers and superiors

Most new managers promoted from within have a challenge to overcome the perception that a former peer is still just a colleague - not a manager. As a new manager, you will need the tools to establish yourself as a confident leader, and a trusted, respected supervisor.

Your ability to communicate authentically, and display a competent, caring yet professional manner will determine your success at receiving the respect you deserve. You must learn excellent communication and negotiation skills which are vital to become a top notch manager. With effective, easy to use communication and negotiation, you will become a respected leader and manager.
