People are often catapulted into management without formal development. With their wits about them they give it their best shot, but the nagging feeling that they just don't know what they don't know holds them back from being the managers they could be.
There are many learning solutions out available for first-line managers; but books are theoretical, e-learning is patronising, and business schools are often out of reach and out of date.
The Growth Manager is a powerful and practical development programme which gives people who manage people what they really need. Drawing on applied human psychology and neuroscience, and decades of working with leaders, we’ve brought the most effective management thinking and practice to life in an experience which blends know-how shots, peer discovery and experiential learning to drive confidence, courage and change.
Managers graduate with a:
clear view of their own style and how to make the most of it
practical toolkit of techniques and frameworks that really work
confidence and courage to experiment and drive individual and team performance
supportive community of peers for continued development and organizational change
Join a group of fellow growth managers for a four-month development programme of five live online workshops, personalised resources, podcasts, access to our Growth Manager Hub, and one-to-one coaching to support your individual journey.
Give me six hours to chop down a tree
and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
Our primary tool as managers is ourselves. Self-awareness is vital.
We build a foundation for growth by clarifying your style,
approach, values, motives, strengths, and scope for personal development.
We use 360 feedback and psychometrics to help you understand and develop your personal brand of management. You will also identify your sources of courage and resilience, as you manage in your own way.
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.
Management is about relationships; and managing people means understanding them, appreciating their skills and talents, and building trust, challenge and mutual respect.
You’ll explore what motivates your colleagues and how to engage their collaboration, creativity and performance .
We look at healthy ways to share your vision, generate ideas, set inspiring objectives, thrash out a difficult issue, hold people accountable, navigate conflict and exchange feedback to help people grow and perform.
You get results by focusing on
the actions that produce results.
When work is well managed, people are free to focus their efforts on the right things, are enabled by systems and processes, and have a clear sense of what good looks like.
We invite you to consider your role in creating clarity of vision, expectation and priorities.
You’ll build your ability to create conditions for great performance and pace, removing obstacles and issues and enabling your team to deliver results everyone can be proud of.
We want the Growth Manager to be as accessible to as many first-line managers as possible, so we've priced it at £1,950 per person. That includes 1-1 coaching, five live workshops and access to all resources for a full 12 months.
Our first group will start in early 2021; if you're interested for yourself or for one or more managers in your business, we'd love to hear from you.
