An accounting degree doesn’t teach one how to mediate conflicts between team members.
An engineering background doesn’t offer the skills to increase employee engagement or give a tough performance review.
And in situations where managers are called on to lean into those not-yet-developed soft skills, well, things become harder than they need to be.
As a result, things fall through the cracks.
Meanwhile, managers put more pressure on themselves than ever before—and don’t have a clear picture of what success in this new world of management looks like.
They doubt their instincts and natural gifts, thinking they "just" need to change, they but don’t know what to change or how.
That’s when they start believing they’re not cut out for the gig.
That they weren’t "born for this"— and their confidence starts to dwindle.
And cue kicking the week off with no-so-excited Mondays and wrapping it up with fully-deflated Fridays. Swap some other adjectives in the place of "deflated", if you like.
Taking the time to understand the nuances of management can seem like another "to do" to add to the list.
But here’s why dialling in these subtle skills is critical:
Bit of a bleak outlook, right?
But here’s the good news:
A manager’s soft skills are the antidote to all those struggles and challenges; they’re the key to a team's wellbeing and a company's profits.
And they can be taught.
The bad news: nobody teaches them.

Not always a cake walk, right?
SO many executives well into their careers walked similar paths:
This is the course you wanted in your early days as a leader.
And it’s a chance to give the people you lead today what you wanted when you were starting your own journey.
The tools, tips, tricks and resources . . .
And more importantly, the empowerment, confidence, clarity and understanding of their job, and themselves as a leader.
Whether a startup, a growing company, or a multinational corporation, communication and management fundamentals are the same.
Maybe a handful of new managers has just been promoted, or there’s the opportunity to add more tools to some tenured management toolkits and elevate the people you lead.
At its core, Awesome Manager is for individuals smart enough to know there’s a way to lead that feels good; that gives everyone a chance to do their jobs better, focus on what matters while growing relationships and feeling fulfilled in the process.
They simply know they haven’t tapped into it yet.
. . . then we’ve got some exciting work to do together.
That’s a bold statement, indeed. And, it’s true (and backed by 20 years of coaching).
