6 New Manager Competencies You Cannot Succeed Without

There are Some New Manager Competencies You Cannot Succeed Without
Being a new manager is a challenge and requires new manager competencies.  You have a new team, your responsibilities change in scope and complexity and your success is now dependent more on the success of others than on your own individual contribution and performance.

The Six New Manager CompetenciesThat Matter Most
Our new manager training experts have identified six new manager competencies you cannot succeed without.

If you don’t come by these new manager competencies naturally, you had better find a management training program and an experienced management coach who can help you develop them…that is, if you aspire to succeed in your new supervisory position.

1.  Teaming
The know-how to develop strong relationships, build a team, influence others and resolve conflict.  Managers help to create high performing teams by setting the team context, having a common purpose with clear goals and roles, not playing favorites and by providing the appropriate level of resources.

2.  Motivating
The ability to motivate and develop team members for higher performance.  An entire post has been dedicated to motivation.

3.  Decision Making
An understanding of business savvy—politics, decision making, problem solving, prioritizing, and organizing to make better, faster and more decisive decisions – especially when the stakes are high.

4.  Communicating
The ability to communicate (to both advocate and inquire) with authenticity, clarity, transparency and empathy.

5.  Financial Analyzing
Financial skills so you can put together a budget and analyze financial reports so you know what matters most, how the business works and where things stand.

6.  Project Managing
Basic project management skills to define, plan and execute projects successfully.  With the uptick of teaming, project management skills for non-project managers is a new, but important entry on this list.

The Bottom Line
Good managers are worthy of great respect. In fact they are the life-blood of successful businesses—the foundation for smooth, profitable operations and engaged employees.

LSA’s Employee Engagement Consulting and Survey work has provided critical visibility into: how well our people are holding up under the general economic environment, as well as, the specific challenges that face biotechnology companies in their efforts to discover and develop new medicines; their level of alignment and commitment to XOMA’s Vision and mission critical strategies; how leadership practices and management systems support an environment that engender commitment, and the specific actions that our leaders can take to improve on areas that are important to our people. I highly recommend LSA’s employee engagement solutions.

The refreshing thing about LSA is that they focus on understanding our business situation and helping me succeed instead of selling a product. With over 150 experts, they are an invaluable resource that helps me deliver higher quality results faster. I recommend them to anyone looking to improve the performance of their workforce.

Each program is preceded by an assessment of the participants. The course is then designed to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group. The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields. On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course. Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually. Given the nature of Cisco’s business and the way we operate, these remote workshops are a must for anyone who joins our company. Their work is eye opening. Great content and fantastic delivery.

LSA’s consultant designed and delivered a half-day team building solution for our recent conference. It included careful customization to integrate the design with our new mission and values. Everyone had fun and identified key issues with our teamwork. Altogether a great program!

I’ve partnered with LSA Global at two companies now, and I consider them a valuable and trusted training and consulting resource. They recommended just the right solution to address our management development needs and have wonderful facilitators that match YuMe’s culture and style of our management team. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company wanting to deliver quality learning solutions with a valuable learning and development partner.

We recently partnered with LSA Global to offer our Supervisors and Managers a customized two-day management training program. Everyone who attended said it was by far the best management training program they had ever attended. The content was rich and highly interactive. The case studies were relevant. Each participant walked away from the training much better equipped to lead their teams.

Jeff Coon
Director of Human Resources

In the Next Generation Management Development courses, I was trained with skills and tools that have made me and my team more productive, motivated, and successful at communicating with other departments.

I’ve been associated with LSA for the last 8 years and have found them to be an extremely professional, well managed full service training organization. Since working with LSA, I’ve participated in a number of solutions ranging from Performance Management to Assertiveness Training – I’ve found that the quality of the resources is superior. They are well prepared and have definitely done a considerable amount of pre-work in order to customize our culture and business into the total learning experience – making it most beneficial for our employees.
