Two years of remote work have challenged even the most inspirational and skilled managers. And the continuing Great Resignation has many of us feeling like our best efforts to groom talent are in vain. These are challenging times but creating a magnetic attraction between employee and manager continues to play a huge role in retaining talent. That, coupled with a sophisticated approach to the agency business propels managers into highly valued leaders.

The seven-part series is designed for people with 0-6 years of experience as a manager and will help develop the mindset and skills that strengthen loyalty, foster client success, and lead to professional growth for you and your teams. Participants can complete all courses in the series to earn a badge or elect to join for only those topics that have become more challenging in today’s virtual environment (e.g., onboarding, delegation, and feedback). All participants are strongly encouraged to also participate in PRC’s UN BIAS series.

You are driven to succeed. But because you process information deeply, you are susceptible to stress, emotional overload, and overthinking.

The good news is that these traits can also make you a powerhouse performer who helps others become the same.
