New Manager Bootcamp

We can help you to build organisation wide manager competence fast and reliably.


To become a manager is to practice a new discipline, different from just doing the work yourself. Now you have to get others to show up and give their best. It sounds simple, but it requires a whole new way of thinking about your work and what it takes to be successful. It takes more than traditional management development.


Are you first-time and less experienced managers struggling to make the transition to their new management role?


Did you send them on MDP’s, but they still fail to get top performance from their teams?


Are the best people unhappy and leaving your organisation?

In the workshop

We build a bridge between learning about management and leadership, and the actual work of managing teams and individuals in the workplace to deliver high performance.


Our New Manager Bootcamp brings new managers in the organisation together to develop effective and healthy management practices to ensure that your strategy gets executed, that the business succeeds, and that you keep, and keep attracting, the best people out there.


The New Manager Bootcamp is a transformational experience where new managers explore the three domains and twelve themes of managing their teams and their people to achieve great performance outcomes in the context of organisational strategy.

Managers learn through:

Studying the key aspects of managing, specifically as they relate to your organizational context.


Face-to-face facilitated peer conversations, enabling the development of a shared language for managing in the organisation, a shared view of what good management looks like.


Workplace assignments that address real, current workplace issues and that will have an immediate effect on manager performance.


Using a Manager Toolkit that provides managers with knowledge and insights, techniques and processes for dealing with managerial challenges.


Peer engagement, sharing and developing great management practices in the context of the organisation.

How does the New Manager Bootcamp work?

6 days of contact learning, in 3 blocks of two days each, over 2-3 months. 12-20 participants per group.


180 pre-assessment with direct manager. Enneagram personality profiling.


Preparation e-learning for each block. Individually assessed post-block assignment. Graduation.


We provide engagement communication and internal marketing support to launch and successfully implement the programme in your organisation.
