New managers


At least one direct report


We usually get promoted because we're really good at being an individual contributor. But, here's the thing - all of the skills that made you a great IC won't make you a great manager. In fact, they can often get in the way. You get one chance to nail the first 90 days with your new team. This workshop equips newly promoted managers with a strategy for releasing control, holding teams accountable, and developing sustainable processes.

What is management and why is it important?

Managers are the cultural custodians of an organization, and they are often the primary reason why people stay or leave. A great manager makes all the difference in a person’s performance, and as an effective manager, we can affect true change and growth in the business. A smooth transition also impacts our own well being by giving us focus, courage, and clarity.

During this workshop, we will:

  • Explore the 4 key shifts we need to make to be an effective manager
  • Discover tools for effective 1:1s and performance reviews
  • Build a 90 day success plan to get your team back on track or make a great impression with your new team

After the workshop, you will have learned:

  • A repeatable framework for coaching in 1:1s and performance reviews
  • A process for growing your team every quarter
  • Tactics to shift your perspective making you more effective

Hi, I’m Maria, and I'm an energetic, status-quo defying, coach. My passion is empowering others - to help them be heard, to discover what makes them unique, to say goodbye to anxiety and self doubt, and to make their work matter. I’ve spent over a decade in technology managing global teams and building custom solutions for hundreds of customers large and small.

In addition to my tech background, I’m also a professionally trained actor and audiobook narrator. The biggest surprise of my professional career has been how much of a game-changer this background has been for me. I specialize in bringing these two perspectives together to create interactive, practical, and fun sessions for my clients.
