Jen Serei – Developing New Managers 101


Download the Show Audio Here

Show Topic:
Managers are often promoted into the role because they are operationally skilled. However, this often sets up first-time managers for failure.

Unfortunately, they frequently lack the management skills necessary for success. In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez as she talks with Jen Serei, SHRM-CP, HR Partner at MP.

They’ll discuss useful tips and best practices for first-time managers, as well as helpful reminders for more seasoned managers.

In this show, Tawny and Jen will:

  • Identify different management styles;
  • Outline common mistakes new managers make;
  • Share ways to limit adverse effects of common managerial mistakes; and
  • Cover challenges managers encounter, such as delegating and managing former peers.
