Becoming a manager is one of the most challenging and critical career transitions. Managers are often chosen from high-performing individuals. These highly proficient doers often become struggling managers, without the methods or skills needed to succeed.

In Management Essentials, based on the #1 best-selling book The New One Minute Manager®, participants are introduced to the three secrets of successful managers: Goal Setting, Praising, and Redirecting. The program develops those secrets into a conversation framework that is easy for managers to understand and master.

The program also adds a fourth conversation, Wrapping Up, which is needed to complete the core conversations and help managers boost the engagement and autonomy of their people.
