- 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.

Next we'll cover topics including building rapport with the team, and what it means to earn trust and show respect. I'll also address several useful communication tips that will help you better connect with the team. Overall, I'm gonna challenge you to become more than simply the new boss. I wanna help you be an authentic leader. When you've completed this course, you'll be ready to hit the ground running with the knowledge you need to successfully complete the first few months in your new role.

Let's get started.
