20 e-Learning Courses to Ease the Transition...


Moving into a position of authority brings new challenges and new responsibilities—some of which might be uncomfortable. And as a first-time supervisor, it's common to feel overwhelmed, anxious and stressed out about transitioning from co-worker to boss.

That's exactly why we created the Bud to Boss Toolkit. Designed specifically to address the needs of anyone who is new to supervising and managing others, Bud to Boss will provide the foundation you need to take on your new position and move forward in your career.

You'll find out how to communicate with former peers who are now your subordinates, how to give feedback, handle performance reviews, as well as conduct difficult conversations—all in a way that's comfortable, productive and successful for BOTH of you.

The sad truth is that 40% of new managers fail within the first 18 months of promoting them because they don’t get the training they need to deal with people, manage workloads, mediate conflict, juggle deadlines and much more.  That is why this online learning and performance support is more important than ever – with a huge ROI for the organization!
