New Manager Fundamentals

with Todd Dewett

Video: Welcome

You've just begun a new management position. Let me guess, you're likely excited and a little nervous, right? That's completely normal. So please allow me to put your decision in perspective. Have you ever heard someone say that leaders are born, not made? That is absolutely incorrect! The good news is that leadership is best viewed as a set of skills, with a little thoughtful preparation; it's a set of skills you can learn. I'll start by helping you understand how to immediately establish yourself as a leader and how to begin setting goals and expectations.
