Idk how to answer your question because I'm an analyst. But I will say that if you're a new manager remember to be nice to your subordinates and they will be happier and work harder for you

Softer skills are definitely part of the training: establishing a cadence with your team, assessments, feedback etc. Beyond that training can include staffing, accounting for project margin and managing P/L budget items (in conjunction with your director or principal). The human component is really 50% of it. The analyst above is not too far off :)

Hey KPMG US original poster - I've been asked to help draft new manager training for strategy practice. Should we know each other / work together? Am based in NYC office.

I'm out of NYC too! Um... Is there a way to private message in this tool?

Don't think so... I sit at 10u05d AoA. Stop by? If at 345 then call me on x77468?

Best thing you can do to become an effective manager is independent research. Start by subscribing to HBR's free newsletter if you haven't!
