Absolutely!  One of the most common comments we hear from experienced managers who attend our Effective Manager Conference is “I wish I had known this when I first became a manager!”  It’s a great opportunity to be ready with a plan of action before you get promoted.  Additionally, many of behaviors we teach can be applied to other work relationships such as peers or project team members.

Our Effective Communications Conference is for any professional who wants to learn how to be a more effective communicator.  The entire Manager Tools team will tell you the behaviors you’ll learn during the ECC are the most powerful we’ve ever learned during our careers.

And you don't have to be a manager to be involved in the hiring process. If you are contributing to the hiring process in any way, whether you be an interviewer or are responsible for onboarding, this event is for you. We all play a role in ensuring those we hire are up to the task and are well prepared for their roles in our organization.

Only a desire to get better.  You do not need to be at any certain level of management.  We have frontline managers, directors, through executives attend our conferences.  All we ask is you be willing to change your behaviors. 

Yes!  We’ve had many managers attend with their teams.  They tell us it’s very beneficial to learn alongside their directs.  It’s also useful to have the chance to discuss the concepts with your directs during breaks and over meals.  We have great admiration for any manager willing to attend management training with their directs and admit they don’t have all the answers.
