EquiPro International Leads “Developing New Managers” Program At Magazine Publishers of America

February 2003

Earning a place in the managerial ranks used to be fairly straightforward—these days, different rules apply. A distinct challenge for new managers is that they are being hired or promoted into management at a much younger age. New leaders come into the management role with significantly less functional experience and organizational maturing. Magazine Publishers of America (MPA) wanted to offer its members a program that would address these concerns.

EquiPro led a half-day workshop for the MPA titled, “Developing New Managers”. The participants were given the following overview:

How to understand the roles and expectations of a new manager, compared to those of individual contributors
How to create a motivating work environment
How to choose an appropriate leadership style to delegate and coach others
How to analyze performance issues
How to manage a boss successfully

Magazine Publishers of America (MPA) is the industry association for consumer magazines. Established in 1919, the MPA represents more than 200 US-based publishing companies with more than 1,200 titles; more than 75 international companies; and more than 90 associate members providing services to the industry.
