2 out of 3 new managers fail within their first 2 years

(Yes, really. And as someone who was once a new manager, this number (unfortunately) didn’t surprise me.)

Yes, really. And as someone who was once a new manager, this number (unfortunately) didn’t surprise me.

I know you’re busy so I won’t go into all of the horrifying statistics of why this should matter to all small business owners, but I want you think about this:

How much do you think failed management costs a company in terms of ROI? 

Hint:
The return will always be negative.

Kinda scary to think about, right? Ineffective leadership not only crushes your forward momentum(so forget about hitting those revenue targets you’d originally set), but also forces you back into roles you swore you would never do again.

In a nutshell: 
Solid, well-trained management comes with a huge ROI. Poor or untrained management will set your company back.

I’m here to make sure you experience the former.

"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.

"My experience working with Mak was fantastic!"

Makeda provided my team and I the tools that helped us open up creatively and emotionally in working as a team. Working with Mak has helped us discover and stick to the points and values that truly matter to us. The experience working with her has helped create a better narrative for our team as well as our clients.

MARIA, OPERATIONS MANAGER 

“Hey, Mak! I’m a new manager, not a business owner. Can you help me?”

(Help a fellow manager upskill and reach their full potential as a leader? Uh, yes please!)

"I USED TO ALWAYS FEEL LIKE THE BAD GUY"

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.
