If you are new as a manager, you have to learn how to balance two roles. As a representative for the employer, you are expected to lead and to deliver results, whilst at the same time having to face expectations from the employees that their best interest should be your focus.
A considerable part of the training is linked to the manager’s key tasks, for example continual goal conversations, team meetings, quality assurance, goal orientation and follow-up activities. It is not just about what is being done, but, and perhaps even more importantly, about how it is done. Communicating in the appropriate way and giving good and relevant feedback are therefore two important parts of the programme.
