Manager’s Advanced Tool Kit

Grow your Leadership Career using the Managers Advance Tool Kit

Eliminate slow burn out, misaligned leadership, negativity, change resistance and more!



Graduates of “The Managers Essential Tool Kit” become skilled at creating an environment of motivation, commitment, growth and accountability. As a result they are given more to do. They are tasked with creating results when time is short, resources are limited and expectations are sky high. They get given teams who are struggling and challenged to turn them around. They are asked to lead other managers and to lead up. They get given responsibility for implementing important change initiatives. They are tasked with bringing optimism and ideas when cynicism and doubt are taking hold. The tools in this program are a direct response to the challenges graduates face in the next step of their development as people and business leaders. As your career as a manager develops, you have to add to the tools that got you here!

Designed for all employees who desire results and who want to make a difference in their workplace, Managers Advanced Tool Kit is a two-day workshop. We recommend a group size of 6 – 20 participants. This instructor-led, in-person/remote workshop will ensure participants receive hands-on training with real-life applications.



Each participant is provided a workbook with reference materials. Each participant also creates additional materials, personalized to his or her own workplace situation. The combination of these two elements creates a manual that is used throughout the year.
