Manager Training

Why invest in training your managers?

The number one reason people decide to stay or leave an organisation is based on their relationship with their manager… 

Other insight shows that more than 1 in 2 managers are experiencing burnout AND more than 1 in 2 people don’t feel comfortable talking to their manager if they are experiencing stress.

We can’t blame the manager. We need to train the manager.

Often managers are people who have been promoted into the role because they were expert in something – likely a specific expertise, that isn’t managing people.

Too few managers are given the training to help them manage their people to their fullest potential.

So, if you’re looking to get the best impact for your people’s wellbeing overall, invest in your managers as a priority – give them the skills to help their people succeed.

The positive ripple effects will then start to be felt by the rest of the organisation (and beyond) too.

Our Manager/Leader Training Solutions

We have three proprietary training experiences for managers and leaders looking to optimise the performance of their teams:

  • Raise Your Human Game – two-day manager/leader training session
  • Building Resilient & High Performing Teams – half day manager training
  • Mental Health Awareness Training – half day manager-focused training

Raise Your Human Game – Training for managers + leaders

In a world where technology is evolving, burnout is rising and divides are widening – we believe it is more important than ever that we develop a workplace community filled with human managers.

As a manager we have the potential to raise those we lead to their highest potential. And we have the potential to lower those we lead to their lowest potential.

With the right knowledge, awareness, understanding and tools we all have the potential to choose the type of manager and leader that we want to be.

The key to unlocking the highest potential – in ourselves and others – is by raising our emotional intelligence.

Or how we like to say it, to unleash our human manager.

Building Resilient and High Performing Teams

Training for leaders + managers looking to support the development of team trust, resilience and optimum performance.

This training has 3 key learning objectives:

  1. Unpack + understand the 3 core ingredients of the highest performing teams – shining a spotlight on “psychological safety” as a central component of this.
  2. Build confidence in creating the optimum conditions for healthy, supportive conversations – this includes a practical case study to put theory into practice.
  3. Explore the concept of “resilience” and equip managers with practical tools to build resilience as individuals – and teams – day-to-day.

It is recommended that groups, wherever possible, are made up of peer levels to help create optimum group safety and sharing potential.

We recommend supplementing this training with a group coaching session 3 months later to support and embed the learning.

Here’s a case study detailing impact and feedback of this training.

Really useful session to ensure we’re all raising our ‘human game’. It’s not just about the business’ success but how we get there together and help everyone BE a success.

Great session and lost nothing being virtual as opposed to face to face. Very engaging, great pace / content and good use of breakout. Will be building this structure into my own virtual meetings. Thanks Sarah & Nicky.

Mental Health Awareness Training

Training for individuals and teams looking to increase knowledge, awareness and response + recovery techniques to support mental ill health, within the workplace (and beyond).
