The Budding Leaders Management Training Program: Service

The First-Time Manager Leadership Development Program

So often, organizations promote a ROCKSTAR employee - usually an individual contributor - to a management position with little training or support and they wonder why their managers fail and why turnover is so high.  New managers especially must work to gain

the trust and buy-in of their new teams, but so many don't know how to do this.


Recent trending business authors have shown us that TRUST is not a matter

of shared opinions, but instead a biological reaction.  Understanding the

biology and science behind human emotion, trust, and behavior and will help

new managers and leaders understand the toughest aspect of management

- the People. 


The Harvard Business Review and other publications have studied the effects

of EQ on our workplaces and have found a strong link between empathetic leaders and financial performance.

Why it matters >

"My research, along with other recent studies, clearly shows that emotional intelligence is the sine qua non of leadership.

Without it, a person can have the best training in the world, an incisive, analytical mind, and an endless supply of smart ideas,

but he still won’t make a great leader."


- Daniel Goleman, the father of emotional intelligence, Harvard Business Review
