Be the manager 

everyone wants to work for.

MGR360 is the go-to certification program for well-rounded people managers

Over one daylong workshop, we make great management your competitive advantage.

Most companies spend only 6 to 12 minutes on training managers each year.* Why? Because most management training is time-consuming and ineffective.

MGR360 is different. We know the impact great managers have—on employees, customers, and bottom-line results. And our unique training program helps you save time, build influence, and deliver results.

Get practical tools. We don’t bore you with useless info-dumps. MGR360 certification is casual, interactive, and focused on tools you can use immediately.

Follow through. Once you’re MGR360 certified, we don’t leave you hanging. We stay in touch over the following months with reminders and tips for continuing management excellence.
