About This Class

Being good at managing others is not about how smart you are, or how much you care. It's about developing your self-awareness, soft skills, and mindset!

This training is designed for new managers who want to develop these essential skills and be more authentic leaders at work and life. Throughout the day there will be lots of hands-on exercises and discussion about your specific situation, so you'll have actionable takeaways you can apply right away.

You'll feel more confident, empowered, and equipped to handle common work challenges.

You will also learn self-care strategies and how to integrate mindfulness into your work life, so you have more energy, better focus, and can build high-functioning work relationships.

This training is designed for new managers, including account managers, PMs, and EAs. Aspiring managers are welcome to join, as well as experienced leaders who want a fresh perspective and review of foundational skills.
