An organization’s success and leadership in the 21st century depends upon effectively preparing and developing high impact managers. High Impact Managers understand the Pareto Principle (80/20) in that 20% of their efforts will generate 80% of the results AND 80% of their time needs to be focused on developing leaders at all levels on their team. The rapidly changing marketplace requires flexibility; solution-seeking; personnel who are striving to learn continuously; and managers who are rapidly adapting work environments, processes, roles and competencies to meet new challenges.

Preparing and Developing High Impact Managers is a key element to succession planning and growing the overall capacity of the organization to compete effectively. To be successful, organizations need to help managers transition their daily activities from being frenzied, stressful, complex, unrelenting exhausting, unfruitful, and demoralizing to developing their capacity to become optimistic, confident, relaxed, and focused on meeting strategic and operational objectives. Delegates will, in their role as a manager or leader, be able to understand the need to prepare and develop high impact managers who can put principles into practice.
