That’s a controversial opinion, I know…
...but let me explain why I believe your managers are crippling your business (and how you can fix the problem):
As an award-winning HR consultant and corporate trainer, I know far too well how much your managers impact your small businesses.
You’ve likely heard this quote:
"People leave managers, not companies"
Before you scoff at that, understand that truer words have never been spoken about business.
Think about it, when people complain about their job, what do they normally complain about?
But not just any people, normally the complaints are about their manager:
Knowing that, it’s hard to ignore the truth that managers can be a big problem that causes your employees to want to leave your company.
Some might say that these people hate their managers because they’re just bad people. While that might be the case some of the time, in my many years of experience, I discovered a different truth.
You see, bad bosses aren’t bad bosses because they’re bad people. They’re bad bosses because they don’t know how to be good bosses.
They need training.
And when they receive that training, wonderful things can happen to your business.
For starters, your turnover greatly decreases. Happy employees stay with companies longer. And when they stay with companies longer, companies don’t have to eat the cost of turnover (which is anywhere from $1,500 per person to 2x that person's annual salary...yikes).
Productivity will also increase. Again, happy employees who have good leadership are better at their jobs.
This increase in productivity means more money in your pocket.
And the most exciting thing to me (given that I’m in HR) is that good managers attract good talent.
When your leadership knows how to lead and create good company culture the most amazing people will WANT to work with you.
Having such wonderful talent will position your business to prosper for many years to come.
I want you to experience all of these wonderful benefits, that’s why I took my 20+ years of expertise as an HR professional and created something to help your managers succeed.
This course is the ONLY manager training made exclusively for small businesses.
When your manager participates in this program, it will take them from being uncomfortable and overwhelmed to clear and confident in just 6 short weeks!
But before I get into all of the details of this amazing program, let me tell you why I think this is your BEST option for training your managers.
When it comes to training your people, there are a few options available to you.
Most major corporations opt to have an in-house team to train their managers to be the best leaders they can be.
Unfortunately, this is extremely pricey and outside of the budgets of most small businesses.
Another option is to just hope the person you hired or promoted for the job is a natural. Believe it or not, this does happen.
But in my experience, only 10% of managers actually fit this description…(there's actually data that backs this up, too).
The last option seems to be what most small businesses default to.
It’s a cheap and easy way to make you feel that you’ve done your part to bring your manager up to speed.
And that method is to…
Listen, books are great!
They contain tons of valuable information and absolutely can help your manager cultivate those important leadership traits.
But there’s just one problem…
Most people hate to read.
There’s just no guarantee that your manager will actually read the books you provide. And on the off-chance they do, there’s no one book that covers all of the nuances of being a good manager.
Fortunately for you, my New Manager Bootcamp contains all of the crucial lessons that managers need to learn and does so in an easy-to-consume fashion.
If your manager was promoted from being an employee, it’s unlikely that the skills that made them shine in their previous job will make them effective in their new one.
Because of that, we need to help them get clear on their strengths.
Managers who understand their strengths are six times more likely to be engaged in their work. And when your manager is engaged, it’ll be easier for them to get their team engaged (and increase productivity).
In this module your manager will get:
● Self-reflective questions to gain clarity on what their team needs from them (and how to fulfill it).
● Access to an online assessment that will reveal their strengths.
● How to use mission, vision, and values statements to motivate their team
● And much more
Managers need to have the right people on their team if they want to be effective at their jobs. But knowing who to hire is easier said than done.
That’s why in this module, we’ll show them our most effective interview tactics to help hire people who want to do good work.
This module will teach your manager:
● Behavioral-based interview techniques (that helps them see through facades)
● The true cost of a bad hire
● An interview cheat sheet they can use if they’re ever stuck
Employee engagement increases dramatically when the daily experiences of employees include positive relationships with their direct supervisors or managers.
This module will help your manager learn how to boost morale and get the best performance out of their team.
In this module your manager will learn:
● Why engagement matters (and how to use this tool effectively)
● How to utilize stay interviews as a check-in on team members you want to retain
● How to develop a relationship with their team members (and develop them into leaders themselves)
Need to get your team to produce results in a short period of time? This module will help your manager do just that.
Delegation and prioritization are skills that many new (and old) managers struggle with. This part of the program will help them hone those skills (and increase performance because of it).
In this module your manager will learn:
● How to use time management effectively
● Prioritization techniques that will help them get the most important things done
● A 5-step delegation process
A manager who doesn’t know how to manage performance cannot be effective.
That’s why, in this module, we’ll teach your manager how to accurately assess the performance of their team.
In this module your manager will learn:
● How to develop goals with employees (and help them hit the goals)
● How to actively listen to their employees (a skill many managers don’t have)
● How to conduct one-on-one meetings that boost performance
Difficult conversations are unavoidable in the workplace. And managers who know how to have these conversations can be the saving grace of your company.
In this module, your manager will discover:
● Our 8-step methodology for having difficult conversations (and how to turn the negative situation into a positive for all parties)
● Why having difficult conversations is an important part of being a manager (and how to embrace them)

1. You’ve said that this program is for new managers in small businesses and start-ups. How do you define small business?
There are many definitions for small businesses, but we typically work with organizations who have under 500 employees and don’t have the luxury of an in-house management training program.

Yes! Please contact us through the form below to discuss volume pricing. Discounts are based on the number of managers who will be trained.
3. How is training delivered?
The training is online and asynchronous. Participants receive an email each week alerting them that new content has been released. They are encouraged to complete the module in the week that it becomes available to enhance their overall learning experience and stay on track to complete the program in six weeks.
