Who I am and why did I create this leadership
training for new managers?

My name is Marie Gervais

and I’m the CEO of Shift Management Inc.

I am a Learning and Development professional with a PhD in culture and learning in the workplace. My own management experience has been with multicultural teams with up to 8 projects at a time, supervising between 5 and 35 team members per project, responsible for million dollar budgets, and for keeping multiple stakeholders happy.

Since that position a number of years ago, I have helped hundreds of managers with leadership management training in industries like manufacturing, oil and gas, robotics, engineering, power, social work and not for profit sectors move from poor people management to confident and skilled leadership.

It has always bothered me how unhappy many people are at work!

So few people at the front or middle management level actually get the tools, resources, and training they need to lead real human beings. They just don’t have the understanding or strategies to work effectively with people!

How can you resource your team to do their job if you yourself don’t have the necessary skills to get them there?

That’s where our Managerial leadership training course comes in. It is research-based and uses real industry examples as the foundation for the content.

Help your managers bring their hidden management talent to life by learning to resource their teams to do their jobs.

Answering your Manager's questions about the leadership management training course

I'm already so busy. How will I find time?

For most supervisors, the hardest part of the managerial leadership training course is learning to schedule their time and to give themselves permission to do the course – at work. Their bosses give them the time and their team members respect the close door while they work on the course, but they themselves don’t believe they can take the time. Fortunately this is all addressed as part of the course. You learn to schedule and stick to your decision as part of the course content and coaching sessions.

My life exhausts me, how will I get the energy for this course?

Although I can’t answer this question completely, I do know that as you learn to chunk, schedule and take control of the areas of your supervisor position that you have not yet been using, you will find you have a lot more energy. You will also learn to start paying attention to your own self-care requirements. And it is energizing to be part of the group sessions. People often say they are inspired by the group.

How will I stay motivated and encouraged?

You receive regular updates, feedback and reminders throughout the course via email. And if you are feeling a lag or drop in the course, remember that you can access your instructor/coach and get some tips!

How hard is this course?

It is easy enough for people who are new to the concepts to absorb and apply and challenging enough for people who are more advanced to take the concepts to he next level.

I never liked school, so I'm worried I will feel the same way about this course...

This is not school. It is about you finding your manager groove, unlocking the keys to your potential and choosing work goals that make your job more enjoyable and your leadership more effective.

What if I need my employer to pay for the course?

Two options:

a. Pay for it now and submit for reimbursement later

b. Send this link to your employer and request payment.

Most employers have between $1,200-$3,000 allocated for professional development and training per employee at the management levels.

What if I have problems logging on or other tech issues?

We have a help desk, where you can submit a ticket, and an instructor you can access via email or phone.

What if English is not my first language, will that affect my ability to do the course?

This course is in plain English at about a Canadian Benchmark Level 5-7 which is the basic English level required by most employers. If you are already employed, you likely have the necessary English skills. If you aren’t sure, take one of the online English assessments to find out what your reading, writing, listening and speaking levels are.

Who do I contact about leadership management training questions?

Marie Gervais or your instructor/coach.

Who sees the inventories and goals I set?

If you are an individual, only you and your instructor/coach see the inventories and goals. If you are part of a group from your company, the employer receives a copy of all goals and inventories at the end of the course.

What if I don't finish the leadership management training?

We do everything we can to help you be successful in this course and stay in touch with you regularly so you can discuss any obstacles. If you had a serious illness or death in the family, you can come back into the course at a later date and attend the live sessions with a different group. But if you don’t finish the leadership management training course, you cannot receive the certificate.

If I am sick or on holidays during the leadership training for new managers course, how will that work?

Usually you can arrange the course schedule on your own time should that happen. If you miss one live session, you can watch the recording for a limited period of time. If you miss more than one live session or any of the rest of the course requirements, you cannot receive your certificate.
