Want to Be a Manager? What No One Tells You About It

You have now successfully lead multiple projects for your team. You know you’re ready to be a manager but your organization disagrees or maybe you have already made the jump. You have seen good management in action. You also know of all the mistakes your previous managers have made and you are certain you won’t make them. Think again. Whether you’re looking to grow into a management role or you’re a new manager, what skills should you learn and grow so that you do not fail brilliantly at this new role? Join Aprajita Mathur as she shares her journey into management. What no one told her and how she still continues to grow in this domain. She will share attributes to focus on, resources you can start using immediately and skills to develop for a management journey. Aprajita will also discuss managing up, down and across your organization so you can have the right conversations for yourself and most importantly for the team you manage.
