FROM PLAYER TO COACH: MAKING THE SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION TO MANAGEMENT

 
The transition from star player to team coach is a tremendous leap. All too often new managers are thrown into challenging circumstances with limited support and resources. As an organizational psychologist, Dr. Woodward believes that effective management is rooted in understanding the psychology of human nature. During this session Dr. Woodward will facilitate self-insight and provide simple techniques for effectively managing in this ever changing business environment. Dr. Woodward will focus on developing self-insight, building trust, having tough conversations, and learning the art of influence. The session will blend interactive lectures, individual exercises, and group discussions. The session will culminate with each participant making commitments to turning their learning into action.
