Great managers aren't born, they're made.

A diverse set of skills is required to manage well, yet all too often people are promoted into these roles without effective guidance or training. That's exactly why we created this course. Participants will leave with core skills needed to manage employees with confidence.

  • Developing & coaching others - we share how to fuel the empowerment and confidence of employees through coaching.
  • Understanding how to work best with different individuals - we help attendees identify the unique styles of people on the team and how to flex to each as a manager.
  •  Boost performance - we walk through the most effective techniques for giving and receiving feedback plus tips and tools to use for successful delegation.

We help people get strong at work, so they can be strong in life. We offer training, coaching and facilitation to help everyone from individual contributors to executive leaders. Our bespoke programs build both horizontal skills like managing, presenting and persuading; and vertical skills such as business leadership, strategy and project management.

Each one of our coaches/trainers comes with decades of management, leadership and executive experience. We've faced the same challenges you have — so we don't just talk the talk, we've walked the walk. When it comes to learning and development, we like to keep it real - favoring the practical over the theoretical. And, we know that if it's not fun it's forgettable. So, we bring a heaping dose of energy and humor to everything we do.

Some companies we've partnered with include Droga5, McCann, Ogilvy, Carmichael Lynch, Colle McVoy, Horizon Media, Dow Jones, Harper Collins, The Wall Street Journal, and many more.
