Training for first-time managers

Get the tools and resources necessary to lead a team, build a positive environment and feel confident as a leader.

Lack of training is holding your team back from greatness and it's making you look bad as a leader.

5 signs that you're dropping the ball as a manager:

Your team spends their days asking you what to do next. It’s pure chaos.

You're constantly putting out fires because you don't have clear systems.

You’re terrible at having difficult conversations because you want everyone to like you. You get tongue tied and end up being a pushover.

You don't know what's expected of you so you don't provide clear direction for your team.

You sense that no one respects you and their actions show they don't take you seriously as a leader.

You're fed up and wonder...

5 clear signs of a fearless leader:

Burnout leaves the building. Everyone delivers results and finally starts working as a true team.

Work stays at work. Your life has balance and you know your team has your back.

You coach and develop your team without the fear of an employee threatening to quit or being labeled the bad person (again).

Everyone rallies around your vision with clarity of purpose, determination and enthusiasm.

Your team's culture reflects your values as the leader and draws others in who want to learn from your example.

You know you have what it takes. It’s just going to take a bit of help to reach that next level of greatness.

Hey, I'm Mak - I too was an overwhelmed first-time manager.

I remember it like it was yesterday, I was only SIX MONTHS in as a frontline worker, then next thing you know… BAM!… the president of the company calls me into his office and I walk out with a new title and all this responsibility.  To say I was confused, overwhelmed and unprepared is an understatement (seriously, I had sweaty palms for like MONTHS!).

Luckily, the company had also recently hired a former USAF Colonel as VP, who mentored me in how to create, motivate and develop high-performing teams.

Under his guidance I was able to:

Scale a 4-person team into a 25-person Care Centre that serviced 100+ clients across North America

Develop from scratch the systems and processes needed to organize our team for peak efficiency

Cultivate a unique team culture regarded as the model across the company

Promoted to a senior leadership position within 10 months of that first sweaty-palmed moment with the president

Create a culture-based vision adopted by the company to fuel their strategic goals and objectives

I’m here to help you. I believe in YOU and that’s why I created The New Manager Accelerator Program.

"This program gave me the confidence, practical tools and strategies I could apply immediately that transformed my department"

I found The New Manager Accelerator shortly after I became a first-time manger and after taking the program I have gained a whole lot of confidence in myself that I can be successful in this role. Being a manager is always something I aspired to but when the opportunity presented itself, I was a little scared. I didn't feel like a charismatic strong leader. But this program gave me the confidence, practical tools and strategies I could apply immediately that completely transformed my department. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Working with Mak was fantastic! She really helped me to step out of my comfort zone. The clarity I gained through this program helped me to define our goals, values and team culture which has elevated team performance. I now have an entire hiring and onboarding system and process that is in more alignment with the clarity and knowledge through NMA!

The program has helped me reflect on what I do well and not so well. Because of this I have a better understanding of my strengths and weakness and can more confidently approach difficult situations and conversations based on the tips provided throughout the various modules. It was practical and enabled me to think through how to approach different areas with my team. I am a much better and truly effective leader after applying this framework.

I really really REALLY enjoyed my time with Mak! She is a wonderful teacher and the sessions were practical, informative and interactive. My favourite part of the program was Mindset. It sounds so simple but in my opinion when you change the mind you allow for an inflow of new possibilities. I have gained A LOT of knowledge, insight and confidence. I can now get out there and work hard for and with my team!

"I have gained more clarity and confidence as to how to manage difficult situations"

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

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. 

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. 

You got this position for a reason.

The people that believe in you and gave you the opportunity want you to succeed. The problem is, you have no idea how to bring it up. Well, give yourself a pep talk, schedule a meeting and get straight to it. Here are a few examples of what you could say:

"I want to boost team morale. With employees showing up every day, even more excited to work, they’ll make a positive impact on customers."

"I want to make my team more productive. Employees generally spend 45 hours working. 17 of those are unproductive. With a manager that gives clear objectives, and consistent communication, employees will be so much better."

"I want to improve customer satisfaction. On average, company’s see a 3-4% increase in customer satisfaction based on amazing leadership that trickles all the way down to the consumer."

I get it. Your career isn’t something to play with.

Right now you only have two options:

Stay overwhelmed...

...in a chaotic workplace, grabbing crumbs of respect from your team. You could stay frustrated going to work every day not knowing what problem is going to hit your desk and stay overwhelmed because you have no idea how to solve them. 

Become a powerhouse manager at your company

It’s time to face your fears of speaking up and confidently asserting yourself even in tough situations. And earn the respect and trust of your team members, colleagues and even your boss!

Don’t miss this opportunity to be the leader I know you are.

Got questions? I’ve got answers!

This is a question I get A LOT! Yes your role is incredibly important in the organization and a huge revenue generator for the company meaning any investment in you is of tremendous value to your company. However, the  mission of my business is to help develop as many first- time managers as I can. So the all my training programs are priced to make the training accessible to as many new leaders as I can. Particularly those that cannot get access to the professional development fund. 

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. Feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] if you have any further questions about the professional development fund.

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. That being said 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 you can start today with a single payment of $257, followed by 2 monthly payments of $257.

Getting off the hamster wheel should be one of your priorities and learning these techniques will help you do that. But on a more practical level the program has been broken down into digestible chunks and into audio files that you can listen to as you go. Past students have devoted as little as 10 minutes a day to their development and seen tremendous changes in themselves and their confidence level. There’s also a course-level program schedule that you can follow to make learning stress-free!

The New Manager Accelerator is a program designed for a first-time manager. So if you are a first-time manager, the program will 100% work for you. Also, along the way, you can reach out to me via SLACK so that we can make sure you are getting the most out of the program.  In the end, we do this as a team focused on one goal: your success.

Managing a virtual team presents a whole different set of challenges. If you work from home, this is the perfect program for you to build your confidence and connect to your virtual team. Plus, all lessons are streamed online. As long as you have reliable wifi and an area free from distractions, you can login to the portal and complete the sessions.

Absolutely!  The techniques and skills you will acquire are independent of whether you are in the office or working remotely.  They are also transferable to other careers and occupations.

Absolutely! As soon as you purchase you will receive an email with your login details. Once you log in you will be taken to the private portal where you can get started.

Yes! You will have access to the SLACK channel where you can interact with me personally. 

Yes.  The free version of Trello has a feature that allows you to access and utilize shared boards if you don’t want to sign up for an account yourself.

Interested but still have a few questions?

Or maybe you just want to meet with me before taking the next step? Let's do it! I would love to meet with you and discuss with you if this program is a great fit for you!

welcome.
