So Now You’re A Manager
January 24-25, 2019 in Berkeley, CA
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 seventh cohort will take place on Thursday, January 24 – Friday, January 25, 2019 in Berkeley, CA.
The eighth cohort will take place on Thursday, April 4- Friday, April 5, 2019 at Viget in Falls Church, VA (DC Metro area).
How this works: Space is limited to 22 attendees. Organizations are limited to 2 tickets in an effort to keep the discussion diverse and varied.
Tickets cost $1,200.
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.

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
This training will help any manager reinvigorate their role to be a better, more confident leader of their team. The activities and discussions remind managers that there are many ways to look at a situation and that part of your job as a manager is to have the capacity to take on a different perspective when necessary.
Tia Lurie / Manager, YWCA
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
Best professional development experience that I’ve had in a long time. It was wonderful to connect with other managers encountering the same issues I am and to be able to learn from one another.
Michelle Wilczynski / Manager, Firefly Partners
You should go to this. Even if you’ve been managing/leading for years, but ESPECIALLY if you’re a new manager (as in, this is your FIRST mgt role, not just a new-to-you job.) Get your boss to pay for it. It’s $$ well spent.
Sara Gardiner / Manager, Cotton Bureau
