Contact Hours: 20

Course Description

Moving into a position of authority brings new challenges and new responsibilities—some of which might be uncomfortable. And as a first-time supervisor, it's common to feel overwhelmed, anxious and stressed out about transitioning from co-worker to boss.

That's exactly why we created the Bud to Boss Toolkit. Designed specifically to address the needs of anyone who is new to supervising and managing others, Bud to Boss will provide the foundation you need to take on your new position and move forward in your career.

You'll find out how to communicate with former peers who are now your subordinates, how to give feedback, handle performance reviews, as well as conduct difficult conversations—all in a way that's comfortable, productive and successful for BOTH of you.

Assessment

Research shows that 70% of development happens on the job, and this is the only off the shelf e-learning courseware provider that helps the learner apply learning on the job through step by step instructions and exercises. The combination of short videos followed by step by step instructions, help learners put into practice the learning they just completed, which means organization leaders are confident that the transition from learning to application on the job actually happens, and organization capabilities are increased.

The LMS uses Microlearning:
Some call it granular, others call it chunked, they mean the same thing—learners want short learning courses. Study after study shows that taking in information in small bite sized chunks leads to increased learner retention. The learning market has been recognizing this trend with shorter and shorter learning courses, including shortening e-learning courses from 4 hours to 1 hour to 30 minutes. Our learning content takes this trend to the next step to meet the demands of learners.
