About the Program

Facilitated by C&C Consulting, LeadUp is designed to guide first-time managers through the concepts, principles and best practices necessary for a successful transition. The assessment, curriculum and individual coaching included in the program has been tailored specifically for new managers in the skilled trades.

What You'll Gain

  • An understanding of the three critical success factors of first-time managers (defining and assigning work; enabling others to do the work; building social contracts and relationships).
  • Clarity around new skills, use of time, and prioritization required to execute management responsibilities.
  • An understanding of best practices and fundamentals for first-time managers in the context of the self, the group, and the organization.

Chamber leadership programs prioritize creating spaces where diverse perspectives can come together to learn, grow, and push our community forward.
