Demystifying Management

Monday, April 29, 2019

  • 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM
  • ThoughtWorks, 99 Madison Ave, 15th floor, New York, NY 10016

EXTRA DATE ADDED - due to high demand, we have added an additional date - April 26.

In this workshop, we’ll start to demystify management by talking tactics to best-support your team, articulating what you uniquely bring to management, and practising a ton of leadership skills. We’ll cover:

  • Coaching, mentoring and sponsoring, and when to use each as a manager
  • Developing a broader network of support for you to lean on as you encounter new management challenges
  • Navigating your team through uncertainty and surprising emotions
  • Growing your teammates through feedback
  • Identifying your management philosophy and how to set expectations for your team
  • Defining an internal barometer of success as a manager, and mitigating energy drain

During each stage of the workshop, Lara leads the attendees through group exercises to practice skills like coaching, giving feedback, and goal-setting. Lara will also provide worksheets and plenty of resources for attendees to continue to grow and further develop these skills after the workshop.
