About This Class

Think about your favorite manager of all time. What was their secret? Which skills separated them from the bosses, teachers, or even coaches you couldn’t stand? And how can you quickly master those skills to become the manager employees are clamoring to work for?

You're about to find out.

Join Melissa Guller (Head of Marketing Engagement at Teachable & 5-Star General Assembly Instructor) for a hands-on course about what great managers do differently.

In this short video training, you'll discover:

  • Why being a top individual contributor doesn't automatically make you a good manager (and how to transition like a pro)
  • Melissa's 7-point ROADMAP framework for achieving - not just setting - your biggest goals
  • The Management Mirroring technique to develop your people and unlock each team member's full potential
  • The right way to share feedback with your team (including the type hardly any managers use correctly)
  • The meetings and systems you need to run a successful, energized team that can scale
  • The secret to building influence and getting huge results, and the ultimate goal that all managers share

Whether you're a new manager or a seasoned vet, you’ll walk away with a clear action plan for managing a happy, top-performing team. If that seems intimidating, don’t worry. We’ll walk you through everything step by step.


Let's get started!
