Set Specific Goals

When training a new manager, one of the first things to accomplish is to establish what goals you and the manager want to achieve.  Ask the manager what they want to accomplish and find ways to work together to reach it.  Set goals that are realistic and can be achieved by the employee in a reasonable amount of time.  Be specific about what you want them to achieve and note the progress you want to see from them.  The more detailed plan they have, the better they are equipped to know what is expected of them.

Common topics to include when making goals:

  • Familiarize themselves with the office area
  • Find ways to improve productivity/reduce errors
  • Improve manager skills and duties
  • Introduce themselves to their employees
