2 out of 3 new managers fail within the first two years.

My mission is to change that.

I train new managers to become impactful leaders and create high-performing teams.

Not only are new managers failing before they have time and experience but...

50% of employees leave their companies because of their boss*

30% of employees believe their manager lacks team-building skills*

Three out of four employees report their boss is the worst and most stressful part of their job*

Imagine the impact poor leadership is having on your team.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

It could go a little something like this:

I'd love nothing more than for this to be you.

"Mak, this program has been invaluable for me."

I have gained more clarity and confidence as to how to manage difficult situations, which as you know from our original call was something I was nervous about. 

This program has helped me to grow professionally and it has definitely increased my visibility in the company as a result. 

The practical advice, and tools you have provided have had an impact on me and my team. I could not have asked for better training. 

Crystal, Customer Experience Manager

I’m Mak! I have a strong belief that leaders like you change lives.

It’s so nice to have you here! Once upon a time I was an overwhelmed first time manager. Seriously, I had sweaty palms for months! I remember it like it was yesterday, I spent six months as a frontline worker. Next thing you know, *BAM*, the President of the company calls me into his office and I walk out with a new title and office. I was tossed into the role of manager out of nowhere. To say I was confused and unprepared is an understatement (seriously, imposter syndrome is real).

New Responsibilities – Any Training = HOT MESS (ME!)

Luckily, the company had hired an angel disguised as a VP, who believed in leadership, professional development and most of all, me. Under his guidance I was able to overcome obstacles and gain the skills and confidence to successfully lead our growing department to amazing results. 

As I observed how the team responded to small changes, I realized that a great team starts with better leaders.

I went from being a screw-up manager to building an entire department from scratch. I’m dedicated to teaching you exactly how I did it, plus some. Because of my experience, I am so eager and passionate about helping you build your confidence to become an inspirational leader that people want to follow. 

Oh, and I believe in you, too.

When I found the New Manager Accelerator I had recently been promoted to a manager role in a call center.  I was struggling a lot particularly with my team. I was getting daily feedback that I was unapproachable, and unsure in my answers to them. I felt like I was doing a terrible job and was considering quitting before I stumbled across your resources! 

I have learned so much since taking this program. I feel a lot more confident in myself as a manager. The program has helped me to become a more effective communicator across the board. I’ve also been able to develop better relationships with my team, think more strategically and as a result, I have seen a tremendous difference in the way we work together and this has helped us improve our customer relations.
