Make the Switch to Virtual Classroom

Great leadership depends on human connection. That’s why it’s so important that leaders learn together. And it’s why the traditional classroom format has always been king for leadership development.

But you don’t have to give that up when your workforce goes virtual. Virtual classrooms are so much more than webinars or online training. They’re an engaging virtual environment where leaders connect and discuss live. And they offer incredible flexibility to bring people together wherever and whenever works best.

Preparing New Managers for Success

Frontline leaders are liable for over 80 percent of the workforce. They are responsible not only for their own performance, but the performance of their teams and the organization at large. They direct performance and people. They implement strategy and learning, and they encourage innovation and engagement. They are also a major reason employees stay with or leave a company. Yet, their organizations likely did not prepare them to make the transition from an individual contributor to their first leadership role. 

Prepare new managers for success with the Leaders in Transition (LIT) program. LIT gives first-time frontline leaders, informal leaders, and high-potential individual contributors the tools they need to build both foundational skills such as listening, communicating, and networking, as well as advanced skills like managing others and managing through others.
