Leadership Growth

6-MONTH MANAGER DEVELOPMENT
COURSE

Empower your front line and mid-level managers to build effective teams, drive ROI, and excel as leaders.

Are poorly trained managers costing you profits and productivity?

Many companies promote internally – moving up their best people. But 60% of new managers fail within 24 months. Even seasoned managers can sink into bad habits and stagnate instead of stepping up.

No one wants to see their people fail. Yet most companies don’t have the training and support that managers need.

We help managers develop the skills and confidence to lead. 

Our 6-month online program is designed for front line and mid-level managers.

Expert facilitators lead an interactive 2-hour class each month via Zoom. Managers deepen their understanding with self-paced readings and videos. And they apply the new knowledge with real-world exercises.

Managers gain knowledge and tools to motivate, delegate, communicate, and coach. They learn how to deliver great results and great experiences for employees and customers.

In addition to the core curriculum, managers get special access to our Leadership Masterclass Series. Thought leaders from successful businesses, not-for-profits, and public service join us to share valuable perspectives. Past and future speakers include:
