Bud to Boss Virtual


Bud to Boss Workshop

Give your new supervisors the same powerful and interactive Bud to Boss training without ever leaving their desk!

Because we understand that travel is not always an option for some organizations, we deliver the Bud to Boss classroom workshop remotely so that the new supervisors in your organization can learn the valuable skills they need to succeed without ever leaving their desk. Broken down into six 2-hour sessions – one per week for six weeks – Bud to Boss Remote is delivered via Zoom and is a live and interactive training opportunity. We specifically limit class size to allow for maximum interaction and learning and record every session, allowing for continued access after the live session date.

With every live online workshop, your new supervisors get:

  • A small group experience where they’ll learn and work together to master new skills
  • Live & personal feedback from their facilitator and peers
  • Valuable learning opportunities from the questions & challenges of others in the group
  • Actionable advice from the facilitator, helping them to implement what they learn in the class back in the real world.
