"Even though I had read the syllabus (so I thought I knew what was being covered) I found that Anne was able to pull apart a lot of projections and assumptions that I'd been making. By the end of each session, I remember feeling like I understood the content in a more nuanced way, and also had an idea of how to start putting new ideas into practice—rather than just rejecting management outright."
I'll offer an open enrollment cohort in Autumn, 2021. Let me know if you're interested.
"Anne was an invaluable resource to many of our fledgling managers during a time of rapid growth. Her training and coaching sessions laid a terrific foundation, and by starting there, she developed relationships with employees that were long-lasting and trust-filled....As new challenges and opportunities arose, she was a source of support, wisdom, and perspective on matters across people ops, culture, and management."
Similarly, though I work from my outline and desired outcomes, program sessions unfold according to the specific needs each group reveals in the course of discussion.
Early-ish? What do you mean, and/or are you kidding me?
"First thing in the morning," imo, is an insurance policy against the ravages of the day. After past eveningbriefingsand workshops, I've heard from people who didn't make it -- once the day starts, there are 99 reasons for your day to be taken away from you.
Can you run a program like this for a group of managers at our organization?
I've been offering workshops, learning programs, and talks about people management in NYC since the early '10s, and started offering my 6-week Management Intensive program in 2014. (I also consult, coach and write a newsletter, On Management.)
Anyone can learn to be a good manager. Yes, "anyone" means you. With time, effort, practice and desire -- and not a little bit of organizational support, and expert guidance.
