The Next Level One-on-Ones Cohort isn't your typical online course. Its manager training — reimagined.
You'll collaborate with and learn from an intimate peer group of 10 like-minded managers who are looking to take their team — and their one-on-ones — to the next level.
Our Cohorts are limited to 10 students per session to ensure you get the the maximum coaching and support. Because of this, the Cohorts sell out quickly, so if you're interested, apply for our next Cohort now!
"I really enjoyed access to a network of peers outside my field, who helped me realize that we all struggle with similar challenges and offered fantastic insight and techniques."
Paul G., Director of Data Analytics, American Hospital Association
