Essential Skills for New Managers (December 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, 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. You’ll receive personalized feedback — from your newsroom — about your strengths and challenges. You’ll get one-on-one coaching on your most pressing concerns. You’ll learn about addressing the challenges of leading your staff through the transition of becoming digital-first.
You’ll return home with confidence and management tools that will begin paying dividends immediately. You can see a sample schedule here.
