ACCELERATE YOUR MANAGERS

Supercharge your revenue growth, outperform your competition and retain your high-performance employees by transforming your managers into high-impact leaders.

According to Gallup's State of the Global Workplace: 2021 Report, up to 80% of employees are not engaged or are actively disengaged.

Here's what this means for your business:

Loss of productivity = 18% of their annual salary for those still working.

Replacing workers = 0.5 to 2.0 times the employee's annual salary.

Cost to the business: $9,000 a year to keep EACH disengaged worker and up to $100,000 to replace them*.

*Figures are based on average salaries as reported

The stats might sound scary, but the good news is well-trained managers that know how to lead are the solution.

Our CEO, knew that since we were all becoming new managers, we needed Mak to give us the tools we needed to be great managers to the team members we are leading. Mak was the exact person we needed at the time, as she helped us see that everything is top down. If we wanted great team members, we needed to be great managers. Now thanks to the program our team can confidently move forward knowing we have the tools we need to be the best managers we can be.

Join the program! You won't regret it. Mak is instrumental to any team who is learning to lead their team members well. She is extremely knowledgeable and breaks the information down in ways everyone can understand. She is patient, kind, and an excellent communicator. You will be thankful you joined.

5/5

Before working with Mak, I felt like I wasn’t helping my team reach their full potential and was just coasting along. I was being too lenient, not producing results and not having great trust without the team. I knew I needed help when problems began to snowball and I was putting out fires that I knew could have been prevented if I knew what to do.

I feel much more confident in so many areas of my role. I don’t question if I should be in this position or if I am falling behind others or what people think of me so much because I can clearly see the results that I am doing well. That I am producing better results and I feel on top of things and make calculated decisions to help those around me. If you ever searched for the answers on how to lead a team, how to be a better manager, how to produce results, how to have a difficult conversation, how to engage employees, then this program is for you. Say goodbye to vague articles or blog posts and you’ll find action items, clear steps and rationale for what you will be doing and it will cover each aspect of things needed to lead a team of people, things I didn’t even think of but totally needed.

I’m Mak! I have a strong belief that well-trained leaders are the linchpins to business success.

Great to have you here 🙂 I’m a leadership and team-building coach who guides first-time managers to navigate the common challenges and pitfalls that can make or break the critical transition from individual contributor to team leader.  I’m an ardent believer that managers are the linchpin of the organization and have the power to change lives every day through their leadership and example.

With over 15 years of experience as a mentor, guide, manager and leadership coach, I am now on a mission to help more new managers infuse their personal values, personality and vibe into their leadership style so that they can better lead their teams and produce outstanding results.

Before working with Mak I was struggling with figuring out who I was going to be as a new manager. I had been having a lot of anxiety preparing for my first day back at work from a leave of absence along with transitioning from employee to manger.

I'm so glad I decided to get help when I saw an email from Mak about the New Manager Accelerator. My outlook has changed about leadership and management in general and I now have confidence to lead my team. And I am able to navigate my way through difficult conversations. To anyone that’s thinking about joining the program truly it’s like Nike says “just do it!” It’ll be the best decision that you make for not only yourself personally and professionally, but your team and the company you work for.

5/5

I stumbled upon Makeda’s YouTube channel nearly a year ago and have been a fan ever since. As someone with a BA in Management and MA in Leadership, I recognized the value strong leadership skills bring to an organization. The content Mak brings to her audience every week is like strolling the aisles of management and leadership books at your local bookstore. Each week holds a valuable lesson, whether you are a new manager or a seasoned one.

“Hold up, Mak. I still have questions.”

Oh good! You’re still reading. I’ve curated a list of objections (ahem) questions I’m always getting asked about the New Manager Accelerator so have a look to see if yours is addressed. And if not, we can absolutely talk it out during a complimentary consult call that can be booked here.

Real talk: The fact you’re drowning tells me that you need some help, urgently. Because despite what you may see plastered over Instagram, constantly being busy, rushed, putting out fires and feeling pulled in a million directions ISN’T a healthy or effective way to run a business.

Yes, this will require some time from you and your team, but it won’t be taking away from your work – it’s directly applied TO your work. We’ll be looking for ways to immediately increase everyone’s efficiency, productivity and communication skills so you start experiencing ease as well as results.

I want you to put yourself in the shoes of your manager right now. What are the chances that they want to admit to any sort of struggle/uncertainty/lack of confidence? They desperately want to impress you and keep their job, so they’d probably sooner drown than admit they’re drowning.

This may feel like an optional extra, but the cold hard truth is that if you want to run your business in a way that you continue growing at this rate, keeping your clients happy, holding onto team members AND maintaining your mental health. This work needs to happen. Soon.

You know the old saying… the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago and the second best time is now? This work is exactly the same. In an ideal world, this would be done right at the beginning of your team’s growth, but the reality is, most people won’t. And the best part about this offering is that it’s completely customized to you. So I’ll be designing the “curriculum” to meet you where you’re at and give you the roadmap to get you to your desired end goal.

Yes! It’s important that all of your managers are trained in a consistent manner that is in alignment with your business strategy, goals and vision. The synergy created by  having all leaders trained in the same manner will accelerate the growth of your company even more!

"Great managers aren't made, they're trained."
