This is not your average manager training.

WARNING: You might leave this training different than when you arrived.

SNYAM workshops are about preparing, enabling and boosting you to lead with empathy, vulnerability and confidence. Through experiential learning, you’ll learn to coach each other, share experiences, reclaim your own inner wisdom and leverage what you already know.

The fourth cohort of So Now You’re a Manager attendees will take place on Thursday, June 21 – Friday, June 22, 2018 in Oakland, CA.

The fifth cohort of So Now You’re a Manager attendees will take place on Thursday, August 16 – Friday, August 17, 2018 at the Sparkbox offices in Dayton, OH.

Specifically, you’ll learn:
* defining your leadership style
* practicing hard conversations
* spelling out what success looks like in the role
* finding accountability partners
* talking genuinely about managing UP
* acknowledging and preparing for burn-out
* strategies for giving feedback
* what to do in a 1:1
* … and how to move things forward.

You’re a good fit for this workshop if you’ve been managing for less than 5 years, you’re hungry to learn, eager to try and open to sharing.

BONUS! Six weeks after training, each attendee will have a 30 minute coaching call with Jen to check in on how you’re implementing what you learned.

Here’s What Our Attendees Have to Say

This is an amazing bootcamp for any new manager to learn the fundamentals of leadership. This is the REAL human stuff, not the good-on-paper stuff you read about in management books that you’ll never actually implement.
Danielle Harder / Director of Team, Yellow Pencil

SNYAM should be a pre-req for management! Jen covers heavy, eye-opening stuff in a lighthearted manner, creating a safe place to learn and connect with peers.
Christina Avino, SEER Interactive

Jen is so talented at understanding the challenges managers face and creating an environment where those challenges can be discussed and collective solutions formed.
Rama Poola / CEO, SkyHi

SYNYAM provided a fantastic chance to share, discuss, and learn from people that are new to management. The two days were an invigorating experience that had me energized to get back to my team.
Dan Ubila / Manager, VTS
