3-part manager mini-series: First time manager skills

Northern Society of Chartered Accountants   norsca.co.uk

A series of seminars for young members to help develop your career.

Most new managers don’t receive any formal training on great management, yet it’s one of the best ways to drive impact in your organisation. To put this into context: the majority of unhappy employees don’t leave jobs, they leave managers.

Event Information

In this session, attendees will understand what good management is and why it matters. WE discuss key manager traits and attributes, and cover some of the key manager processes: having great 1:1s, giving feedback, setting development plans and motivating teams.

This lunchtime session will be led by Oliver Deacon, an FCA who qualified at Deloitte and, until recently, was an FD at Microsoft. Oliver has been managing teams for over 15 years, with consistently strong employee feedback scores, and has now become a full time coach.
