155. 4 Insights from Running a New Manager Training Program

About this Podcast

Ep. 155 – Over the last 4 years, we’ve built and evolved our new manager training program called the Leadership Accelerator and I took some time to reflect on the key insights learned during that time.

In this episode, we’ll discuss:

  1. Peer support vs. individual learning
  2. Mindset vs. skill training
  3. Good leadership vs. right leadership
  4. Isolated training vs. integrated training
