    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.
