“From the Front-Line to Manager: It’s Not an Easy Transition” is an hour-long workshop, 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10, designed to examine the dangers – as well as the possibilities – of promoting leadership candidates from within a business.

The move from a front-line employee to a management role is one of the most difficult transitions to make during most people’s career. Spader will help attendees better understand and make that transition (or help others make it).

Topics for this course include:

  • The five most common mistakes first-time managers make and how to avoid them
  • A game plan to ensure a successful transition into an employee’s first management or supervisory role (or help a new manager)
  • A tool to help them monitor and adjust to their new role

Spader also will present an extended Super Session from 8:00-10:15 a.m. Friday, Nov. 11, entitled “Lions of Leadership: Are you as Good as the Top 7%?” In this session attendees will learn how recent research of several hundred dealership-based leaders and managers found that only seven percent know how to be effective across all types of situations.

Topics for this course include:

  • The reasons why most leaders are underperforming their true potential
  • The five most common leadership patterns and the types of situations in which they excel and struggle
  • Three actions to improve leadership effectiveness based on leadership type

Spader serves as a lead trainer and consultant for Spader Business Management, and his areas of specialty include leadership development, succession planning, strategic development, company culture and effective hiring practices. He is the primary instructor for Spader’s Leadership Development Programs.
