Going from a Peer to a Manager and Getting Respect

1.5 Professional Development Hours

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 becoming a top-notch manager. With effective, easy-to-use communication and negotiation, you will become a respected leader and manager.
