Manager Development

Getting to Scale: Manager Development

To experience sustainable growth, companies need to establish expectations for how leaders manage at every level – from CEO to the front line. How do they drive alignment to larger goals? How do they reward performance over time and deliver feedback? Which behaviors should they encourage, and how? How will they establish and sustain strong relationships with their teams? Are they “talent magnets,” or “diminishers” who drive top performers to quit?

The management consulting process can include designing and delivering workshops for leaders and aligning performance management to broader goals. I help companies, particularly growing companies that do not yet have a learning and development function, to design these programs in a way that is most likely to drive financial performance.

Testimonials

Team Leader

Jonathan was instrumental in my personal growth from Director to Managing Director. He’s an amazing systems thinker, seeing many steps ahead in organizational strategy, to advise on how to best move ahead. His advice and coaching was helpful in strategic as well as tactical ways. I was able to talk through detailed strategic plans and come out with a better understanding of what steps would be most fruitful as well as a shared view on the overall strategy.

Team Leader, Singularity Education Group

Jonathan was such a trusted partner in not only helping to build my team, but also acting as a great sounding board and guide through many difficult situations with poor performers and tricky HR situations. In addition, built a wonderful and essential management training program . He crafted an inspiring 2-day offsite for all managers that helped build relationships across silo’d business units, build a common perspective on company culture and gave us useful, every day tools to draw from.

Senior Leader, Pinterest

I worked with Jonathan when I assumed a leadership role. With Jonathan’s coaching , I was able to think beyond the requirements of my current role, to focus on building the mindset needed to be successful in a more complex role. He helped me to identify and then work beyond assumptions which were holding me back, while helping me build new narratives and practices for maintaining high levels of engagement and energy both at work, and outside of work. His coaching was instrumental to the professional success I have been fortunate to accomplish in the past two years.
