How Do I Look? Property Brothers. Kitchen Nightmares. The Biggest Loser. Ever wonder why makeover shows are so popular? They tap into our fascination with transformation and signal a very human need: to see that real change is possible.

As talent development leaders, you are the change makers—and often, managers are the ones who need you most. While they have the power to be rainmakers, most never really learned how to accelerate business success. Join us for part one of our Manager Makeover series with author and transformation expert Gary Magenta. He’ll take you behind the scenes with an experienced manager as he helps her transform from a firefighter to a rainmaker. You’ll learn:

  • what a manager makeover can do for your bottom line
  • why managers are prone to acting like firefighters and what’s really holding them back
  • the three things that matter most to transform your managers into rainmakers.
