The vision of Blanchard Management Essentials Training

Blanchard Management Essentials builds on the core concepts of the best-selling management book, The New One Minute Manager®. It gives new leaders the necessary tools and skills to become the leader who engages, creates productive teams and improves results. When your leaders have the right leadership skills, they build effective relationships, make the right connections, and bring out the best in their people. Blanchard Management Essentials equip your managers with the fundamental skills to build positive relationships that drive engagement and productivity. The best start for your new leaders makes all the difference.

The Fundamental Skills for Every New Manager

The ideal leader inspires employees, leads productive teams and improves results. Many managers are untrained and struggle at their jobs, relying on ineffective behaviors and instincts that often work against them and undermine productivity. These management pitfalls arise from success as an employee and urgently need a transformation to a new mindset as a manager. That's why we used our 40 years of experience to create a transformational leadership training program for new managers and those who need to refresh essential skills: Blanchard Management Essentials®. We teach new leaders the four core conversations and the four essential communication skills to give them the best start they could wish for.

Who is the Blanchard Management Essentials Training suitable for?

The training is suitable for all new managers ready to learn the basics of leading others. Also established managers and supervisors looking to improve essential management skills will benefit and improve their leadership qualities. This one-day training will suit your management onboarding program perfectly.
