Making the transition from managing yourself to managing others can be an exciting and challenging time. How can you make the impact you want to make from day one?

“The session was really engaging, with break out rooms and role play - the interactive nature is great and it was really helpful meeting people from other organisations to get fresh perspectives. Right number of people too. Doing it virtually can be a bit tricky so ensuring proper engagement is really important.”
