The first 100 days in leadership

Establishing a sense of leadership and the basics of management

To a significant extent, the success of a manager is decided in the first few weeks. It is essential to discuss the future tasks and roles of managers even before they commence a new position. The same is true for experts who have already gained experience of managerial responsibilities.  

It is important to identify personal strengths and to use these as a starting point when developing a personal leadership style. This gives people the confidence to build relationships with key players and, as a result, to secure the trust of the entire team. 

This course describes the additional tasks of a manager compared to a specialist when it comes to motivating colleagues and ensuring long-term success.
