Empower your managers to engage their employees

Management Challenge is a one-day leadership development experience in which your managers practice developing their employees. Your people put their managerial skills into action during this team-based simulation as they engage virtual employees in critical conversations and coaching.

Why Management Challenge?

The demands on people managers are growing, and new managers are experiencing a higher rate of failure. Management Challenge provides a space for new managers to explore, practice, and obtain meaningful feedback before they make a critical mistake with one of their direct reports. The experience easily integrates into your organization's management philosophy and frameworks. Want to learn more? Schedule a 15-minute conversation.
