Emerging Managers Programme



Everybody who arrives in a management role for the first time, asks themselves what do I do now? The hard work and technical skills that got them the management responsibility are not the skillsets necessary to be successful as a manager. The new manager needs to quickly identify what he/she needs to focus on and how to make the necessary personal changes in a seamless manner.
