THE FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS

FOR EVERY MANAGER

ACCELERATE YOUR MANAGERS’ SUCCESS WITH A TRANSFORMATIVE MANAGEMENT TRAINING PROGRAM

Most new managers struggle, and the cost of that is significant: high turnover, low morale, subpar productivity, and more. It’s because most don’t receive the essential management skills training to succeed. That’s why we created Blanchard Management Essentials®: a transformational leadership training program for new managers and those who need to sharpen the essential skills needed to build positive relationships with team members, inspire engagement, and drive productivity.

58% OF MANAGERS said they didn't receive any management training.*

98% of managers feel they would benefit from more training.**

 

DON’T LET YOUR MANAGERS RELY ON FAULTY INSTINCTS THAT UNDERMINE MORALE AND PRODUCTIVITY. GIVE THEM VITAL MANAGEMENT SKILLS TRAINING.

THE ADVANTAGES OF TRAINING YOUR NEW MANAGERS

RESULTS FOR our CLIENTS

CareDx

“We had new managers, experienced leaders, and high potential employees in the class, and they all found it valuable.”

Jere Ramsey Lester, Human Resources Business Partner, CareDx
Alberta Pensions Services

“First-time managers so rarely receive the guidance and training they need to be effective. We often assume that management or leadership skills are something people are born with. They're not. These are teachable skills. Blanchard's program will help an entire generation of new leaders get off to a winning start.”

Karen Adams, President and CEO, Alberta Pensions Services
Washington Trust Bank

“Becoming a first-time manager is a defining moment in time and if met with the right approach can certainly change the trajectory of your career. I believe the key is in taking your relationships a step deeper and earning trust as a respected leader. For me, this starts and ends with the quality and depth of conversations with those I lead. Blanchard’s program provides exactly the information that will help new leaders start their new careers with confidence.”

Kate Harmon, Retail Learning and Development Manager, Washington Trust Bank
