Online Management Training That Sets Up New & Not So New Managers to Succeed

Why do so many new managers and emerging leaders fail within the first two years of promotion? While most are promoted based on their technical expertise, too many new managers, emerging leaders — even those managers who’ve been around awhile — are prepared with little, if any, leadership or management training. That’s where we come in… online management training and onsite leadership development to get your managers ready to lead.

One quarter of managers said they weren’t ready to become a leader when they started managing others. Even more disturbing, 58% said they didn’t receive any management training.*

A Solid Leadership Foundation Is Essential

Expanding on the key leadership strategies presented in the popular book, Leaders Ought to Know: Ground Rules for Common Sense Leadership, Leaders Ought to Know®  online management training equips emerging leaders, new (and not so new) managers with the skill mix essential for success in their new roles and responsibilities.

New managers, emerging leaders, (and even those who’ve been around awhile) gain critical insights and instruction for successfully leading, motivating, communicating and building engaged, high-performing teams.
