Frequently Asked Questions

For C-Suite Executives

Great question! Here’s the thing, I’m data driven so I could spew all the data in the world that builds the case for training your new manager. Here’s just a few that you might want to know: 

32% of an organization’s voluntary turnover can be avoided by better leadership 

It costs your business one-fifth of a workers annual salary to replace an employee that quits

Better leadership practices generate 3-4% improvements in customer satisfaction and 1% increase in revenue growth. 

I love data because it paints a very clear picture. And these numbers tell a story. An untrained manager is costing your company $$ and affecting your reputation on the daily.

None at all! My programs are designed to be easily digestible and quick to complete. Our programs have video and audio modules so your new manager can learn on the car ride to work, at home and on the weekends. They can learn on the go and show up Monday morning, ready to dive right in with the company.

The VIP Intensive doesn’t even take the length of the entire work day. We focus on team performance in 5 hours flat!

Yes I do offer bulk pricing that goes as low as $397 per person depending on how many managers in your department/company that need training. Feel free to reach out to me directly for more information on getting all your managers trained. 

Yes, currently I offer workshops on the following topics:

Leadership Effectiveness

Developing a culture of feedback

Creating High-Impact Teams

I am open to consulting with the C-suite level executives and middle management on how to build not only a team that thrive, but a company. If you’re interested in learning more about strategy work that you can implement with your own team, email [email protected] to start the process.

For The First-time Managers

The rules for how to use stipend benefits vary by company.  In many cases, it’s simply a matter of having your boss or HR sign off on the training, then submit your receipts for reimbursement. I have a template that you can use to highlight the course content and benefits which will simplify the reimbursement process. Use this template right HERE. Or reach out to me at [email protected] and I will send you further materials that you can send to your employer for course approval.

Listen, 60% of new managers fail within their first 2 years – I don’t want that for you and I know you don’t want it for yourself. Invest in yourself now to set yourself up for success within your company. I also get that this is a significant investment and that can feel scary.  But the truth is that it’s riskier to try to figure this all out on your own.  This isn’t something you can simply learn by downloading PDFs and googling a solution as each crisis unfolds. 


I want this to be a no-brainer investment, which is why I offer payment plans to make this as affordable as possible. 

I understand that this my feel daunting. I do offer a complimentary session for my clients to work through how they can speak to their boss about getting approval. Feel free to contact me and I’ll send you a calendar invite for a 20 minute session where we can go through some tools I have as well as thoughts on how you can approach your boss. 

Working with me through The New Manager Accelerator starts at $397 USD. This is a hybrid online course with bi-weekly Q&A sessions.

You can also work with me one-on-one through my VIP Virtual Intensive which starts at $697 USD. 

You can work with me one-on-one through my VIP day program, Build Your Dream Team. You can learn more about the Build Your Dream Team HERE.

Media & Press

Definitely! I’ve spoken on other platforms about team leadership and team building. You can reach me for any media or feature opportunities at [email protected].

Yes! You can feel free to learn more about me and my journey by checking you my Press Page HERE.
