Management Excellence

Onsite program with follow-up coaching for a minimum of 6 or more managers 


People are often promoted because they are functionally good at their role, not because they know how to manager others. We can often set good employees up for failure when we promote them into people management roles with little skills or knowledge as to how to help others succeed. 

This 4-month blended program is designed to help managers apply a set of best practice tools and techniques to sustain high performance, retention and employee satisfaction. In this blended learning approach participants will learn how to:


  • Recognize their strengths and potential de-railers

  • Build team trust and proactive communication

  • Set clear performance expectations to help self and others succeed

  • Hold an effective coaching session with direct reports

  • Motivate engagement and high performance

  • Effectively deal with performance issues

  • Measure success and manage-up effectively


4-Step Curriculum 

1. Pre-work: 

Each participant is sent a welcome letter with login information to enter his or her confidential COACHPORT page. COACHPORT is a proprietary software program designed to create a virtual coaching room to review assessments, goals, assignments, share training material and to video meet with the candidate’s assigned coach. Pre workshop assessments will be taken including our management self-assessment and the DISC Communication Style and Behavior Motivator.



2. Onsite Workshop:

In this highly interactive 1-day workshop participants will gain greater self and other awareness.  Leading-edge skills in management and coaching will be taught through lessons and experiential learning. The program ends with an individual development plan to achieve in their one-on-one coaching sessions. 


3. Follow up Coaching:

Each participant will receive 4 one-on-one coaching sessions with a dedicated certificate executive coach.  Coaching sessions are typically 45-60 minutes in length and are held via live video conference through COACHPORT. Each coaching session is designed to help participants apply and personalize key management skills learned in the workshop. 


4. Final Assessment and Sustainability Plan:

The candidate and coach will go through a final skills assessment and create a sustainability plan to continue to reinforce learned skills and behaviors. Candidates will have access to their coach via e-mail and their COACHPORT account for a period of 6-months from the beginning of the program.
