Created with our partner, Vado Inc., The Bud to Boss Toolkit is a convenient way to support new leaders on the job. While these modules sit on your LMS and are in that way “e-Learning”, we consider them to be performance support tools. These bite sized, e-learning modules help learners take what they learn and immediately apply it to their work.

  • Each module is a short-instructional video, led by Kevin Eikenberry or Guy Harris (or both!)
  • Each module includes an Implementation Guide – comprehensive step-by-step instructions to help guide the learner through the lesson and to help develop their capabilities.
  • Learners are able to develop at their own pace – completing each program on their timetable.
  • All modules include downloadable templates, checklists or other tools to help implement the learning – true job aids – and a Course Assessment to help learners evaluate their development success.
