Nobody is born a manager OR a leader and in fast-paced environments we often find that the hard-skill side to management as well as the soft-skill, reflective qualities of good leadership aren’t catered to as much as needed. When organisations grow faster than the people steering it, time is wasted, clients are lost and bad hires are made. Let’s put a stop to that.

When you are working with a startup, chances are high that you’ll have a shot at taking on more and more responsibility and moving up the ranks quickly - maybe even a bit quicker than you would like. From one day to the next, you’re no longer only responsible for your own work but you need to ensure that quality results are delivered by a bunch of people - sometimes by your former peers or friends. You start getting asked questions you don’t know the answer to, have to build and nurture a high-performing team and navigate a million difficult conversations each day - upwards and downwards. You’re asked to deal with ambiguity, take decisions and act in the interest of the company - without always knowing exactly what that means.

We designed this program for new managers & leaders, combining hands-on managerial skill training and a safe space for self-reflection and building leadership capacity with others who face similar challenges.
