On 20th August 2021, we graduated the second cohort of the New Managers Leadership Programme. The Programme ran from the 16th August 2021 and culminated in a graduation on 20th August 2021.

This second cohort attracted 41 participants from Kenya, Uganda & Tanzania. A total of 12 organizations ranging from Non profit, banks, insurance, Telcom, Academia, Financial Sector were represented.  The third cohort of the Programme will take place between 1st November 2021 and 5th November 2021 at Strathmore University Business School.

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 our entry-level leadership programme. It focuses on improving capabilities such as effective presentation and communication skills, team dynamics, planning and budgeting, the effective feedback process, problem-solving and conflict resolution, decision-making skills, and different management styles.
