The most fundamental transformation a person goes through in their career is when they move from being professional individual contributors to managing others. Nothing in their experience up to that point prepares them for this transition. Some people are stuck in this transformation for years. A few CEOs that I coached had not completed their transition to leadership by the time they reached that senior position.

So how can we help the new managers? How can we support them to move from a mindset of «It is about me and what I can do», to «It is about my team and what they can do»? This leadership development solution provides managers with the leadership mindsets, skills, and tools they need to actualize this transition. Then they can skyrocket success and impactful contributions to their team. They will grow by growing others. They will learn how to define success by becoming leaders.

Aviad Goz, the visionary of N.E.W.S.® and the creator of the N.E.W.S.® First Time Managers solution.

What is the Need for the First Time Managers solution?

A lot of first-time managers are promoted without any proper induction or preparation for being successful in their new role. The new normal caused by the pandemic, accelerated promotions of individual contributors into a managerial role. In many cases the best practices on how to lead team members are missing. There is a high price for this for themselves, the team and the organization.

Who is it for?

  • People who were recently promoted to become managers or team leaders, for the first time in their career.
  • First-time managers, with 1-3 years of experience, who never had a proper leadership development training.
  • Talented people on their way to their first managerial role.

The program has been delivered to Qualitest, the world’s leading AI-led quality engineering. Green light for massive roll-out was given after pilot programs in US, Europe and Asia. Feedback was excellent. N.E.W.S.® HQ calibrated the new solution based on this global success.

  • "I liked that I learned a lot through the practice sessions but also via exchanging with my peers. The most important thing for me is that I understood areas that can go wrong during any leadership conversations and how we can overcome them."
  • "Tailor made for our exact needs. With relevant examples. In this way I managed to transfer knowledge immediately in my daily practice."
