We help managers master the critical interpersonal management skills they need

what we do

Employees don’t leave organizations, they leave managers

Our Peer Learning Group Program helps managers develop the managerial and interpersonal communication skills they need to ensure the employee engagement, performance, and retention necessary for company success.


Develop your managers’ skills

All management interactions, such as: providing direction, leading change, handling a difficult employee, giving performance feedback, resolving conflict, and building a team, require effective interpersonal management skills. Particularly as employees suffer the stress and anxiety of working remotely, they need managers who: have emotional intelligence; can control their anger and their tone of voice; can make decisions; do not play favorites; provide clear, concise, constructive and caring communication; know how to collaborate; and handle conflict and disagreements objectively and professionally.

Start a peer learning program

Research shows that people forget 77% OF WHAT THEY LEARNED SIX DAYS AFTER LEAVING THE CLASSROOM because it is not tied to their day-to-day work. In contrast, peer learning-based management development programs, grounded in the flow of work, help managers learn, retain, and apply the skills they need on a daily basis to successfully engage employees, manage performance, and retain talent.

How it works

The managers learn through peer learning groups

Five or six managers who are dealing with a current management challenge participate in two 90-minute self-directed peer learning group sessions that are separated by a month of practice. They follow discussion points and review reference information provided in our materials. They leave the first session with a commitment to use a new approach to handle their challenge more effectively.

Every week during that month, the managers receive microlearning tips, check in with a peer buddy drawn from the group, and maintain a brief log of what they did, what happened, and what they learned. They know that they will be held accountable by their group when they return to report their experience during the second session at the end of the month.

The result: The managers have the competence and confidence to handle daily management challenges effectively.
