Moving from Peer to Manager

Thursday, August 1, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Course Number: SM5100

When you are a peer and have a good relationship with your co-workers, everything can move along and peak performance can be attained. However, when one peer gets tapped to be the manager or supervisor, all relationships must change. Transitions like this are challenging in ideal situations, but making changes within reporting relationships, even when the change is anticipated, can test a team’s flexibility.

Participants will learn about the process of moving from peer to manager and what they and their manager can do to mitigate the possible fallout of change. We will discuss best practices and the skills that get called on during times of transition. Participants who are anticipating a transition into a management role within the next year, as well as those managers and supervisors who have transitioned within the past year, would benefit from taking this course, especially those who want to reflect on what didn’t work so well and make some necessary changes.

All UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and staff are invited to register for and attend the various courses offered by the Office of Human Resources Organization and Professional Development team.
