Leadership & Management Development

Managers are the single most important factor when it comes to engaging, motivating, and retaining talent. Often times, managers are promoted because they exhibit strong performance as individual contributors, but rarely receive formal management training. This shift can be difficult on new managers because the skills needed to manage others are very different than those needed to be a great individual contributor. The Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED) can help you design and implement a comprehensive leadership and management development solution that will engage and empower your talent while increasing productivity, retention, and organizational success.

Featured Topics

New Manager Development

Today, 60% of new managers underperform during their first two years. Those who don’t leave their positions develop bad habits that stay with them throughout their career. Transitioning an employee from an ineffective manger to an effective one can improve employee performance, engagement, and retention.

Coaching & Mentoring

Coaching plays a vital role in developing and nurturing an organization’s knowledge and human capital. To achieve critical results and remain competitive, your organization should view coaching not only as a means to shape individual performance, but also as a means to build broader organizational capacity.

Executive Leadership Development

Executive Leadership has unique development needs and are open to contributing to the learning of others. These leaders’ greatest development opportunities are often found in perspective, emotional intelligence, and relational skills, which will significantly impact their success.
