Manager Essentials core content

Designed for new or first time managers, or those who have not had manager training previously, our program teaches managers critical skills to help increase performance, engagement and effectively lead others.

Managers learn practical strategies and techniques for giving and receiving feedback in a way that motivates and empowers team members. They will learn how to create a safe and supportive feedback culture, and how to provide feedback that promotes learning, improves performance, and strengthens relationships. 

An overview of psychological safety, what it looks like when team members feel psychologically safe, and strategies to build psychological safety in teams, regardless of where their team is on the journey to psychological safety.

Managers learn communication techniques such as questioning and active listening to help facilitate problem solving and encourage team members growth and development. Using a coaching model, leaders will become more skilled at listening, questioning and drawing insights from those they lead. 

Managers learn practical tools and strategies to enhance their ability to navigate and cope with stress and workplace challenges. They will also learn how to identify signs of burnout and ways to increase their well-being.

Our cohort-based approach

The majority of our programs are cohort-based. This approach to learning provides managers with an opportunity to collaborate with their peers, maintain a sense of accountability, cultivate a professional network, and reinforce their learning.
