Becoming a great manager isn't easy or overnight.

Let's face it. Managers are a company's most critical asset.

And yet, most managers get little to no training when they start overseeing direct reports. There’s either no time or no budget to focus on building their skills. Even simple management tactics can get overlooked without proper onboarding.

HERE'S HELP.

Our micro-learning experience taught by management expert Cecilia Gorman is designed to provide foundational content that improves manager skills, plus fits into busy schedules. 

Leadership training that's hard-hitting and easy-to-access.

We’ve designed the Boot Camp experience to be digestible, impactful, and easy to use. It's as simple as clicking an email delivered right to your inbox.

Of course, you could let your managers figure it out on their own.

Or, have them learn from their mistakes.
(All of those sound lengthy and expensive!)

Why not shortcut their path to success with targeted lessons—that easily weave into a busy daily routine— to help your managers feel more equipped fast?

"I’m getting so much out of this. I wish I could rewind
the clock and take Boot Camp earlier in my career."

I loved Cecilia's course! She's a spectacular communicator, and has a talent for making some of the hairy emotional and interpersonal situations of management seem like normal and surmountable challenges– even opportunities for growth! I think this was one of the most golden aspects of the course, really– her positive frame. It's the kind of attitude that shifts you from just "solving problems" into actually seeing opportunities in each situation; her perspective helps move you from a "coping mentality" to a "thriving mentality." That attitude shift is an incredible asset for my organization– but also for me personally!

Cecilia's coaching style, examples, personal stories, and helpful workbooks really resonated with me. It allowed me to relate to her and easily translate to scenarios in my workplace. I appreciate her style as a full 360 human being, using lenses of emotional intelligence and personal/professional wellness vs. an old school "control" lens or rigid tactics that are hard to apply in real life. This training is not lazy – it takes your attention seriously, and its absolutely worth your time.
