Newbie managers: can you handle what they’re throwing at you?
Your boss. Your team. Your boss’s boss. (Or your employees and customers, if you’re in business for yourself. )
Your organization is growing and that’s a good problem to have but you feel like you’re losing control, and they’re losing control by proxy. Have they made a mistake by putting trust in your too-green self? Will you be found out?
It can be a bumpy transition to increased responsibility for good reason; you’re basically adding a second job that equals more scrutiny, more pressure, and, on top of that, accountability for other people.
What if instead of making mistakes you could protect against them? What if instead of closing your office door and retreating, or hiding behind email, you could strengthen important relationships now? What if instead of losing control of your team you could watch as they blossom into increased productivity?
What if you could integrate these practices into your day-to-day while the transition is ongoing?
Imagine turning all that pressure and stress into useful energy.
That’s what New Manager Coaching does for you.
I help smart, capable new managers and first-time leaders ease the transition from being a solo contributor/team-member to leading a team and motivating others.
We’ll work one-on-one together over a period of months on your real-time business challenges and your team’s specific needs, the stuff that you’re dealing with every day.
This IS NOT your usual touchy-feely coaching program. It’s focused on quantifiable goals that we define together well in advance, with strategic business results at the core. The program is backed by over 10 years of experience leading teams, consulting for businesses, and researching best practices for making the transition into leadership. It won’t just make you feel better. It will make you a stronger, more prepared, and more confident leader.
Here’s what other people have said about working with me:
“Before working with Scott, I was consistently spending my time reacting to staff needs rather than focusing on developing the high-level initiatives I am accountable for. By implementing some small strategies I have already empowered my staff to be more confident and efficient with their own work. I have also spent more time working on projects that I was not able to get to before.” – Dan Torrez, Director of Operations, LERN
I had the warmest, mind blowing, eye-opening session with Scott. Hire him now if you are looking for a coach! – Akira Morita, Co-founder, Design Kompany
“I had very little opportunity to talk out the myriad challenges I was facing with respect to organizing, prioritizing and delegating work. I am more self aware about what I need to be focusing on as a leader.” - Dana Mortenson, Executive Director, World Savvy
Coaching helps with accountability, decision-making, and self-awareness, so that you can up your game.
