Start New Managers Off Right
The demands on people managers are growing, and new managers are experiencing a higher rate of failure. No matter your management framework, Management Challenge isolates key competencies and provides a space for new managers to explore, practice, and gain experience before they make a critical mistake with one of their direct reports.
Instill Your Management Framework
Management Challenge is successfully integrated into manager onboarding programs, whether your people are new to management or simply new to management at your company. You teach them your management philosophy, model, and framework; we’ll give them the opportunity to practice and put their skills to the test in the simulation and video-based case studies.
Invest in Your Managers
When you have a fundamental shift in your company dynamics – due to an increasingly diverse workforce, mergers and acquisitions, changing organizational structure, or something else entirely – you need to develop your managers so they can develop their direct reports. Management Challenge is an effective way to practice your company’s new management philosophy or framework.
