Employees are promoted to managers every day. Often the transition from a successful employee to a starting manager is difficult. To be just as successful as a manager, they need other skills. The Blanchard Management Essentials training gives new managers the skills they need to be a good manager right from the start.

No less than 60 percent of starting managers are underperforming in their first two years. If they continue to do this, they will develop bad habits that will stick with them for the rest of their careers. Many of us know that moving to a leadership position requires different skills, yet 85 percent receives no training before they start.

When starting managers have the right skills from the start, they not only have all the tools they need, but they are also more motivated to be the best manager for their employees. They support and motivate employees, so that the team can deliver the best results for the organization.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Abbott Laboratories
Abbott Laboratories - Arnoud de Jonge, Director of Operational Excellence and Business Operations

How do you improve teamwork? Abbott Nutrition has implemented the Influencer training over the last few years. We've certified in-house trainers that have trained from Spain to Singapore and from India to Chicago. Many of our locations have noticed the powerful change that Influencer brought in creating effective behavior. The interactive training method has proven to be successful and has contributed to winning the prestigious 'Shingo' prize at four Abbott factories, an award that focuses primarily on “getting the best out of your people”.

SBM Offshore
SBM Offshore - Jetske van de Schaaf, Global HR business partner Governance and Strategy

As a project engineering organization, we realize that "technical brains" are often less strong in speaking up, especially on difficult topics. The result we see after 2 years of intensive Crucial Conversations training, is that the awareness of our managers and professionals improves and that engagement and exceptional team performance are not created by directive leadership and silence, but by stepping into dialogue, truly understanding each other and then find the solutions that improve results.
