Impact Achievement Group Podcast Series Examines Training that Transform New Managers into Superior Leaders

SEATTLE — March 9, 2010 — Training new supervisors has everything to do with how effectively they begin to manage, how well their team performs, and ultimately, the company’s reputation and overall performance.

Yet employers often marginalize the importance of training new supervisors, stopping at rewarding superior performers with a promotion. Employees, however, need to use additional skills than those that made them stand out as an independent contributor.

In a new podcast series, Supervisory Basics: Helping First Time Managers and Seasoned, But Untrained, Supervisors Transition to Effective Leaders, Impact Achievement Group experts will cover issues that affect new managers — and often, any manager — and help them mature into superior leaders.
