In the fall of 2009 Guy Harris and I built and piloted a workshop called the Bud to Boss Workshop. We first delivered it to about 35 new supervisors in downtown Chicago. A few weeks later we delivered it again in Nashville with about 20 more leaders.
We built the workshop because we knew that new leaders and supervisors had needs that weren’t always being addressed; and every day they were building habits that would inform the way they led for the rest of their lives.
Soon after, we began putting what we were teaching (and the answers to the questions we were getting asked) in a book – that became From Bud to Boss: Secrets to the Successful Transition to Remarkable Leadership. Since that first workshop in Chicago, we have delivered the training inside of companies and in public workshops around the world.
Now it is time to take the next step.
Our passion for helping new leaders grow and succeed hasn’t changed – in fact it has become clearer and more important to us over time. Not only that, but the demands for us and our trainers continues to be stretched. We can’t meet all the needs, and so we have now created a version of the Bud to Boss workshop that you can bring into your organization to be trained by your internal folks.
It’s our training – everything we’ve learned about helping new supervisors grow and develop – and your internal trainers – to make sure that you can meet your needs economically, and tailor the messages to your organizational realities.
Introducing the Licensed Bud to Boss Workshop
How will it work?
In order to ensure your in-house training is world class, you will certify as many trainers as you think you will need. The Certification is a full 4.5 day learning experience with Guy to prepare you to deliver the training successfully, consistently and confidently.
After trainers are fully certified, your organization will be able to purchase training materials and other learning resources to support the delivery and learning in your organization.
The first certification workshop will take place
September 16 – 20 January 13-17, 2014 in Memphis, Tennessee – on the site of one of our early adopters.
To get more details and answer your questions, contact Barb McLin via email or phone – 1-888-LEARNER (or 317-387-1424), ext 4.
As you might imagine, spaces in this intimate trainer certification workshops are limited. And this is likely the only opportunity you will have this year to start this process for yourself and your organization. Contact Barb to start the process of getting seats for your trainers now!
p.s. If you are an independent training consultant and would like to talk about offering this training to your current and future clients, Barb can help you join this group of certified trainers as well.
