Get the training you need to become a confident, respected leader.

TRAINING FOR NEW MANAGERS

No more Googling “how to handle difficult conversations” or reading books full of inspiring but - let’s be honest - useless theory on effective management tactics. With a proven framework, personalized feedback and a supportive environment to practice what you’re learning, I’m here to help you develop the skills, mindset and tools it takes to actually BE an effective manager.

You have the potential to make a difference. And I’m here to show you how to achieve it. Even if you feel like a fraud or that you’ve already screwed up so badly you can’t recover.

Because while you might not believe it right now, you were chosen for a reason. 

It simply means you haven’t been given the training and support system you need to succeed. You know – the support you thought you’d be provided when you got the position but never actually appeared?

And in case you’re wondering, no, feeling out of your depth doesn't mean you’re unqualified or undeserving of this role.

It’s pretty dang hard to lead your team to success when you have no idea what you’re doing.

- NATALYE, Manager of Behavioural Health

I was at a crossroads, wondering if I should just go back to being the individual contributor because I felt like I would give and give, and I wasn’t getting the result or making the impact with my team that I wanted. [After NMA] I have a lot more confidence in myself. I used to internalize criticism but now I learn from it because you helped me see what’s useful and what to put aside. Your course really helped me set more of a foundation as far as boundaries so I have work life balance.

"I felt like, do I even want to be a leader? Is it for me?"

And as someone who (spoiler alert!) eventually overcame those struggles and became a confident leader who scaled a 4-person team into a 25-person department, created a team culture that brought the best out in everyone, and whose leadership decisions became recognized throughout the entire company… I’m here to tell you that you have the potential to do the same. 

I’ve made it my mission to create the resources, training and support I *wish* were available to me when I was a new manager so you can speed up the process of becoming an impactful manager – and actually get to enjoy the journey!

But rewind the clock and you’d find me freshly promoted into my first management position… immediately filled with overwhelm, self-doubt and terror that I’d let everyone down.

In other words, I know exactly what it’s like to be in over your head trying to navigate a role you feel completely unqualified for. To spend your days Googling for answers, second-guessing every decision and imagining the horrible things people are probably saying about you.

Today I’m a leadership coach for new managers and founder of The Impactful Leader -

- CLAUJA, TEAM MANAGER

Before NMA, I was suffering with so many interruptions in my day and a lack of drive with my team which showed up in the work they were producing. It caused me a lot of stress. I'm happy to say that things have turned around after NMA. I was blown away at the results. I now go home at a decent hour because I have a well-oiled machine of a team that is engaged and productive. I've been able to create systems for delegating, and 1:1's which has helped me to create accountability, rapport and high-performance. Mak dotted all her i's and crossed every t in this program and you can easily apply the frameworks she provides. I’m truly grateful and you will be too.

"I have a well-oiled machine of a team"

- JULIET, SYSTEMS ADMINISTRATION MANAGER

I found The New Manager Accelerator shortly after I became a first-time manager 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. This program gave me the confidence, practical tools and strategies I could apply immediately that transformed my department.
