They know how to motivate their teams, they provide regular feedback, they grow and develop their employees, and their team members become raving fans. Sounds amazing, right?
But here’s the reality: Less than 10% of your managers are truly excelling as people leaders. Most new managers struggle and that leads to negative impacts on your business. When you have untrained managers, you have higher turnover, disengaged employees and lower productivity rates.
Left to their own devices, these managers are uncomfortable leading a team. It’s not their fault because many have never been given an opportunity to see what great management looks like. In most organizations, manager training is either non-existent or not comprehensive enough to make a difference. This is a systemic problem plaguing most organizations.
That’s why we’ve created New Manager Bootcamp.
Our comprehensive six-week online program covers all the core areas of manager know-how and provides your managers with tools and resources they can use well into their management journeys.
Each learning module includes video training, tools, tips, resources and templates to use now and after class.
Most managers get promoted because they are great employees, but that doesn't necessarily mean (and often doesn't mean) that they'll be great managers. Our program kicks-off with a strengths assessment to determine what skills and competencies the manager has and can rely on in this management role.
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, including our 40+ page workbook packed full of valuable content
Module 2: Hire the right people
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 your managers 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 and red flags to look for before you hire someone
An interview cheat sheet with sample questions your managers can use if they’re ever stuck
Module 3: Retain, engage and motivate your team
Employee engagement increases dramatically when the daily experiences of employees include positive relationships with their direct supervisors (up to 70%!).
This module will help your managers learn how to boost morale and get the best performance out of their teams.
In this module, participants will learn:
Why engagement matters
How to regularly assess your team's engagement through conversations and stay interviews
How to develop a professional relationship with team members (and develop them into leaders themselves)
Bonus: Sample employee engagement questions your managers can regularly ask their team members
Module 4: Maximize productivity
Need to get your teams producing results in a short period of time? This module will help your managers do just that.

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

I really appreciate how comprehensive this program was. I feel like each lesson built on the past and it was very helpful. As soon as I had a question, it was addressed in a later lesson. The section on engagement was very enlightening. Thank you very much for a fantastic program!

This was an absolute great course to learn about best managerial practices and how to be a good manager. I enjoyed all the videos, slides and added resources. I would definitely recommend this course to a new manager.
I love that I could login and complete the modules when it was most time efficient for my schedule and also that I could pause and come back to complete if needed. All of the resources and handouts are excellent and I can see them being extremely useful in the future. Thank you so much for making this course available!
