The Manage Better Centre for Learning

Where first-time STEM managers accelerate their path to success

The future is tech enabled and the pace of change is exponential.  As a result, STEM professionals are often promoted prematurely without managerial experience. At Manager Better we help technical experts become Proficient Managers quickly. This drastically increases their satisfaction and ability to lead while decreasing the risk and churn rate of the organization.

Manage Better creates skillful future leaders by working with them as they take on their first management positions, and by helping them to quickly develop the foundations for great management now and compelling leadership in the future.

Through cohort-based turnkey online courses,  and one-on-one coaching we equip early-career managers with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to manage effectively and with confidence.

“It’s hard to overstate the impact a proactive, insightful manager can have on a business — and its employees. At a time of unprecedented turnover, feeling connected to, respected by, and engaged with one’s manager is vital."
