BDR Management Training Boosts Long-term Leadership for HVAC Companies

February 17, 2021

Business Development Resources (BDR), the training and business coaching authority for home services industry professionals, will help HVAC contractors position new leaders for success with Creating the Next Generation of Company Managers, a three-day live virtual training scheduled for March 30-April 1.

“The transition from employee to management is one of the most significant shifts most people will experience in their career,” said BDR head coach Chris Koch. “It’s not simply a promotion. There are new relationships and dynamics that demand new skill sets and strategies. If you don’t prepare for those, the whole company can suffer. But if you take steps to help new managers understand and embrace their new role, the long-term benefits more than make up for that minor investment.”

During Creating the Next Generation of Company Managers, Koch will introduce essential skills and principles that help employees successfully navigate the transition to management, including how to:

  • Understand the difference between employees and managers and their roles in a company.
  • Manage new expectations from employees, co-workers and business owners.
  • Implement time management, delegation and prioritization strategies.
  • Build a positive team culture.

Creating the Next Generation of Company Managers is designed for new service and install managers, lead service and install technicians, and HR professionals. Owners who are adding their first manager will also benefit from the course.

BDR’s live virtual training is broken up into three 90- to 120-minute sessions each day. Participants have access to the same training as BDR’s live events from the comfort and convenience of their own desk.
