Training and Development for Managers is Critical to Individual & Organizational Success

Managing isn’t a great experience.


There I said it. It is the elephant in the room whenever I work with a team. Most managers live with double the work and double the expectations. In fact, managers report more stress, burnout, work-life balance and worse physical well-being than individual contributors and are less likely to know what is expected of them.


Because of this, our team at Human Potential Advisors decided to jump in and try to support managers with our 2023 Book Club. Since it filled up so quickly, we decided to dedicate this month to helping you better support the managers in your organization.


Check out this month’s blog to find tips and tools to support you as you develop your "People Leaders" or simply work to grow your own management and leadership skills.
