New Manager Development Program

Assumptions about this program

  • If you are a new promoted manager or you are coordinating a new manager, taking the lead of a new team is a serious challenge.
  • Designed to acquire better results and more effectiveness even during the transition period and to manage and rapidly overcome it.
  • Based on the well known model, established by Bruce Tuckman, of group development stages (forming, storming, norming, performing), the period between forming to performing is a rough time both for the organization and the new manager.
  • Using this program you will skip the steps and go forward directly to  performing and you will gain more easily results that otherwise you will achieve in months.

Your Advantages

  • Gain insights about yourself, your team and the values in the workplace.
  • Discover how to gain cooperation from your staff, which are their psychological roles, and how your team members will derail under pressure and in tough times.
  • Avoid the problems that sabotage many new managers
  • Help your team members to become top performers and stay motivated
  • Achieve concrete, positive results right away 

To whom is this program valuable?

  • Newly promoted managers
  • Existing managers (less than two years) whom have never benefit a similar program 

Steps of the program

Step 1 : Assessment - Completing the Hogan suite (online)

Step 2 : Reports Generation
a) For the manager

b) Team Report

Five sections, showing how each team member's characteristics affect team performance:

  • Team Roles
  • Team Derailers
  • Team Culture
  • Individual Profiles
  • Individual Perspectives

Team Report: Team Roles

The Hogan Team Report identifies five psychological roles to which team members naturally gravitate and are necessary for a highly functioning team:

  • Results
  • Relationships
  • Process
  • Innovation
  • Pragmatism

Team Report: Team Derailers

  • This section identifies each individual's potential derailers, or characteristics that can impede performance when under pressure or become exposed due to personality differences.
  • If a majority of team members show the same tendencies, the behavior will amplify, undermining the team's performance.

Team Report: Team Culture

  • The report includes an analysis of the team culture, such as the individual values and drivers that guide self-focus and priorities.
  • When team members share the same values, the team can bond more easily and become more united in achieving goals.

Team Report: Individual Profiles and Perspectives

  • The Individual Profiles and Individual Perspectives sections provide a detailed view of the similarity of each person compared to the rest of the group.
  • The Individual Profiles use a summary graphic to compare individuals on a scale level, noting differences in behavior, derailers, and values.

Step 3 : Feedback

Individual Feedback for the manager:

  • Review individually key leadership competencies with high impact on participant effectiveness during the 1:1 feedback session.
  • Providing strategic self-awareness on strengths and areas for development with respect to those key leadership competencies.
  • Discuss about individual core values and personal drivers that can support development and personal growth.

Presenting the team report to the manager:

  • Reviewing the distribution of roles inside the team.
  • Understanding the individual differences among team members.
  • Identifying the main areas of development of the team.
  • Recognizing the team culture with respect to manager’s values.
  • Discussing the potential areas of conflicts and divergence and establish strategies to avoid them.
  • Developing an action plan in order to increase the efficiency.

Step 4: Team Workshop (Optional)

The results of the team report could be used in facilitating a team workshop so that all team members take advantage of strategic self-awareness, team effectiveness and alignment.

Structure of team workshop:

  • Discuss common business objectives of the team, the desired culture and the needed competencies to accomplish those objectives (exercise).
  • Facilitate strategic team- awareness about common values, strengths and/or derailers (interactive team report presentation and exercises).
  • Discuss the team’s assessment results (strengths, barriers and opportunities)  in relation to the team’s strategic goals  & challenges for the future (next 6-12 months).
  • Encourage team dialogue and interpersonal awareness (feedback game).
  • Facilitate creation of team action plan (exercise).

Step 5 (Optional): Coaching Sessions

We recommend continuing the development process accompanied by a professional coach, in team coaching sessions.
