Today’s best managers believe that their employees are more than just fixed assets. They have shifted away from the role of commanding boss to supportive coach, by creating the space for employees to become their best selves. As a result, employees become self-motivated, bring higher energy into the office, grow in their roles and lives, and become more loyal to the company.

15Five’s Humans not Resources is proud to present an interactive panel discussion focused on, “Transforming Managers into Effective Leaders”. We have partnered with premier coaching companies, BetterUp and ThinkHuman and amazing leadership coaches, Caneel Joyce and Praveen Mantena to help shift your management style from transactional to transformational.

Some of the topics we’ll be covering include:

- Shifting the mindset from manager to coach

- How to have more effective and valuable 1:1s

- How to really listen as a manager (hint: you probably don’t, though you might believe you do)

- Making the connection between personal development and high performance
