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.
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.
Every year, the State of the American Manager report uncovers the current condition of managerial expertise, but the grim fact remains: Little has changed.
