Manager Immersion

MANAGER IMMERSION

The Manager Immersion program is an in-depth experience designed specifically for people managers and intended to increase the skill of awareness as a manager. Through conversations, individual contemplations and accountability tools, this immersive program guides managers to develop their best manager self.

OBJECTIVES

  • Develop the skill of manager awareness
  • Identify and address gaps between perception and reality
  • Evolve behaviors to support a new leadership style/technique
  • Evolve behaviors that supports improved team dynamic

EXPECTATIONS

  • Accept that behavior change will take longer than you think. Having new conversations, shifting behavior and learning to lead with awareness takes practice, and practice takes time.
  • The experience might be both uncomfortable as well as empowering; know that each are necessary to alter behavior and mindset. Embracing both what you do well and where you can grow is part of the journey.
  • Even if you have a deep understanding of the concepts covered (awareness, perception, reality), embrace the opportunity to share knowledge, wisdom, experiences and fears with your peers.
  • Acknowledge fears or uncertainty you may have about this program. Many managers feel they “should know this stuff,” but we cannot know that to which we have not been exposed.
