One of the toughest transitions in any career is the jump from individual contributor to manager. Even though 99 percent of companies provide first-time managers with some form of training, more than two in five managers believe they were unprepared when they took on the role, according to a new study from Wakefield Research and Grovo. Surprisingly, the study revealed that the struggle most companies face in developing the next generation of leaders is not due to a lack of training, but rather a failure to design training that is likely to engage 21st-century workers and result in lasting behavior change on the job.

Join Alex Khurgin, Grovo’s Director of Learning Innovation, for a data-driven journey through the state of today’s management development programs; followed by an in-depth analysis of what is and isn’t working; and tips for creating an effective management program for your organization based on Grovo’s innovative, microlearning-based instructional design method.

In this presentation, you’ll discover:
- New statistics on the critical importance of management training in the digital age
- Compelling insights on why many go-to management training techniques fail
- Actionable tips for designing an effective management training program for your 21st-century workforce
