Solutions for New & Frontline Leaders

Prepare Your Leaders with the Key Skills They Need to Get Successful Leadership Results – Right from the Start

Becoming a leader for the first time is one of the most challenging and critical career transitions most people will ever face. It’s exciting but it’s also challenging. New leaders are being asked to handle situations that they have never encountered before!

They are navigating company politics, leading employees who are former colleagues (and likely even friends!), managing high-risk decisions, giving difficult and uncomfortable feedback and so much more.

And the cost of not handling even one of these scenarios is significant to an organization. Poor leadership leads to disengagement, low morale, increased turnover and so much more. 

And unfortunately, many of these new managers have been set up to fail because they were thrown into supervisory positions without any training, guidance or support. 

 40% of new managers fail within the first 18 months of being promoted. 

Don’t let your new leaders flounder. Give them the tools they need to develop the right skills at the start of their new role – when they need them most.

For over 30 years, we have been helping organizations who believe in investing in their most valuable assets – their people. We have helped thousands of leaders and hundreds of organizations realize their true leadership potential. And over the last eleven years through Bud to Boss, we have helped those transitioning to a new leadership role. 

We know that the most challenging leadership experience anyone will face isn’t the one at the top but the first promotion to a leadership position. It can be overwhelming to deal with the change and uncertainty that come with a new job, requiring new skills, and the promotion from peer to leader. And new leaders need a road map to be successful.

Our entire Bud to Boss curriculum is built around the timeless principles from the best-selling book, From Bud to Boss. Bud to Boss teaches the core principles, techniques and approaches that new leaders can apply to any situation that they'll face in their new role. 

What Makes Bud to Boss Different?

Every Bud to Boss tool that we have created is built around one of our guiding principles: Training is an event, learning is a process.

We believe that real useful learning comes from a continual process of doing, trying, experiencing and applying. We will only ever see the results we desire when we consider the “event” a spark for, rather than the completion of, the learning.

So whether you choose to learn from one of our workshops or bring us in-house or certify trainers or even purchase copies of the book for all of your new leaders – every learning option that we provide incorporates ways to continually use and apply the ideas that you learn to help make them a part of who you are as a leader in the real world.

Whether you’re looking for your whole organization or one department or a handful of employees, we can help.

We offer a variety of ways to deliver this valuable content – flexible learning that meets the needs of your team and your organization.
