NABLF Launches Training Program for First-Time Managers
|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, September 6, 2019|
The NAB Leadership Foundation has launched an online education series for first-time radio and television station managers as they transition from individual contributor to an experienced team leader. The "First Time Manager Series" uses interactive sessions and provides online resources to help bridge the gaps in management training that can hinder professionals recently promoted to their first supervisory role. The program empowers rising managers to effectively communicate, delegate and motivate.
The five-part curriculum covers all aspects of managerial responsibility, including productive transition habits, continued professional development, and progressive leadership skills. Employing guided role-play, applicable practice exercises and self-audits, new managers will gain the know-how and confidence to become successful leaders.
"The NAB Leadership Foundation noticed a gap in training for new managers and responded by developing this program to provide the tools and resources necessary to help them succeed," said NAB Leadership Foundation President Michelle Duke. "The materials are designed to be a continued resource as these future leaders progress in their careers."
NAB says the addition of this new series highlights the Foundation's commitment to building a "vibrant, innovative and more diverse future by educating and inspiring leaders within the broadcast industry."
