Manager Training Essentials

Every L&D and HR team gets it: Upskilling managers is no walk in the park. Teaching them a new skill is one thing, but getting them to do it (and do it well) is its own challenge.

That’s why we created four templates to help you guide your managers step-by-step through the process of transforming into coaches, refining their feedback skills, fostering trust with their teams, and mastering 1:1 communication.

Elevate your managers, elevate your business

Managers are the backbone of your team. They are charged with the business-critical tasks of driving performance, sparking innovation, and keeping employees engaged.

Beyond technical skills, power skills like emotional intelligence, communication, and adaptability help managers excel in today’s complex workplace, build trust, and maintain a high-performing team — which ultimately impacts your bottom line.

Employees with ineffective bosses waste between 10% and 52% of their time at work. 

70% of team engagement is attributable to the manager.

Managers who incorporate soft skills into their leadership approach can increase their team’s performance by as much as 30%.

People with emotionally intelligent supervisors — those who are self-aware and empathetic — were happier, more creative and more innovative.
