Mate to Manager

The transition to leadership

Move from being an accidental manager to intentional leader

One of the most difficult transitions in the workplace is the move from individual contributor to managing and leading your first team. Not only does your title change but your perspective on work needs to shift as you become responsible and accountable for the performance and behaviours of a group of people. You also take on the responsibility of upholding your organisation’s values, standards and codes of conduct.

The Mate to Manager short course will give you the knowledge and skills to move from being an accidental manager to an intentional leader. You will learn the responsibilities associated with being an intentional leader, build a positive team culture and how to manage team members who are also your friends.


This Short Course is presented virtually via Zoom. However, just like a face-to-face workshop, we’ve built in opportunities to meet your facilitator, work in break-out groups and network with other participants. You’ll be expected to engage actively throughout the sessions so ensure you have a reliable internet connection, a working webcam and microphone, and the latest version of the Zoom app downloaded.
