Who this is for

While this offering is available to everyone, we generally recommend this only if all of the following apply to your organization:

  • There are three or more managers at your organization who’ve attended an in-house training or one of our public courses in the last two years
  • You’re looking for a refresher on our management content
  • You’re looking for a group learning and support experience
  • You have a manager on your team with facilitation experience who can implement the program

Note: While designed to be implemented as a standalone program, the Management Workouts are not meant to be a training or training replacement. If you’re interested in those, check out our public courses!

How you can use the program

Purchase the modules you want and designate people in your organization to facilitate discussion sessions.

We recommend purchasing at least four modules because they are designed to be used as a program.

Here are a few ways you can implement this program:

  • Gather managers for a day-long training or retreat to cover a bunch of modules at once.
  • Cover a couple modules each week using teleconferencing software while working remotely.
  • Incorporate workouts into new manager orientation over the course of several weeks, and revisit as needed.
  • Set up weekly or biweekly discussion sessions over the course of a few months.
