Nurturing and Growing New and Existing Management Talent

Promotion into management is an exciting rite of passage for any new graduate. But there are many pitfalls to avoid as one sharpens their skills in an all-round way. While the new manager has been recognized for the technical skills, self and other people management is a minefield. They must learn how to lead others rather than do the work themselves, to motivate, manage their peers, earn trust and respect, and to strike the right balance between delegation and control. It is a transition many find challenging to make.

The New Manager Leadership Programme (NMLP) is SBS’s entry-level leadership programme. We will focus on improving the following capabilities: effective presentation and communication skills, team dynamics, planning and budgeting, the effective feedback process, problem-solving and conflict resolution, decision-making skills, different management styles.

Venue: Serena Hotel – Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

My take-home from this was networking and delegation. As leaders, we were used to being on our phones all the time working, gathering everything to ourselves, either Albani does it or no one will do it. Now, I can even sleep because my team has been empowered, even though it is still a slow process, I know they can get things done without me and this I owe to Strathmore. It was a lot of work and the content was quite a lot for a one-week course. But the facilitators made it very easy and the best part was that the facilitators were speaking from their experience and not just the notes. So, you could feel the whole experience and you could see yourself someday going through the same thing that they’ve gone through. So, for the people who haven’t yet participated in this programme, it is about time that you should participate
