ATD's Management Solutions Framework

Most frontline managers—also known as people managers—have 15 direct reports. These managers are responsible for developing their direct reports, who are accountable for much of the organization’s output. To help managers with this development, the Association for Talent Development (ATD) created the ACCEL model, which defines the five critical abilities necessary for managerial success: accountability, collaboration, communication, engagement, and listening and assessing.

Front-line managers are responsible for developing their direct reports, which makes them a crucial part of any organization. It's key that talent development professionals enable managers to overcome key barriers to effectively exhibiting ACCEL skills, including a lack of time or other priorities and not being held accountable for developing direct reports.

This four-day, intensive program integrates ATD’s research-based ACCEL skills model with Yale’s superior management training curriculum to provide managers with the ultimate management development experience.

ATD has curated its top resources on management, aimed at helping frontline and middle managers develop and improve the performance of their teams.
