Essential Skills for New Managers (April 2017)
It’s time to let Poynter help you jumpstart your management career.
Maybe you’re an inexperienced manager just starting your new role. Or maybe you’ve got managerial experience but have had little training. In either case, you could use some tools — and a hefty dose of confidence.
Essential Skills for New Managers will give you both: the tools and confidence to lead and grow a staff of high-performing journalists.
Join veteran newsroom leader Butch Ward, Poynter’s Senior Faculty for Leadership, Editing and Writing; Cheryl Carpenter, Chief of the Washington Bureau for McClatchy, and members of the Poynter faculty for a highly-interactive week devoted to helping you master the skills that every manager needs to help their staff reach their potential. Butch Ward explains what you’ll learn (and take back to your newsroom) in this video.
You’ll receive personalized feedback — from your newsroom — about your strengths and challenges. You’ll get help for leading your staff through the transition of becoming digital-first. You’ll get advice for addressing your most pressing concerns with coaching from Poynter faculty, one-on-one.
You’ll return home with confidence and management tools that will begin paying dividends immediately.
You’ll learn how to:
- Establish your credibility as a leader, even if you are new in your role
- Provide feedback and coaching that will improve quality and motivation
- Plan and carry out difficult conversations that get results
- Use your time to more effectively carry out your responsibilities
- Build effective relationships with your staff, your peers and your boss
- Manage people who were once your peers, friends or bosses
- Focus your staff’s work every day on the audiences you’re trying to reach
- Lead brainstorming meetings that produce better ideas
