In-person training sounds like a great idea. But sometimes it just ends up being boring, PowerPoint-based lectures. We want you to imagine engaging, in-person training for a new role, training that really helps you to build skills. 

Imagine you just got a promotion to your first job leading people and managing projects. You’re going to a 3-day event to learn the soft skills (how to give feedback, how to prioritize tasks, how to build relationships with customers, etc.) you need to succeed. 300 other new managers will be there, too. So will a number of more experienced leaders from your company you can learn from.

At the end of those 3 days, you have to immediately use your new skills on the job. What activities, experiences, or tools will help you and your peers build your management skills so you can succeed?


Help generate ideas for a 3-day training experience that truly helps employees new to managing people and projects build the skills they need to succeed.

We want your most out-of-the-box suggestions for effective training! If it helps, consider the questions below. Or, if you'd rather, just work on your own.

  • What activities would you include?
  • How could you and your peers work together to build skills?
  • What would motivate you and your peers to participate in the activities?
  • How would you provide support to build some of these skills on the job after the 3-day training?
  • Are there technologies or tools you'd want to use?
  • How would you like to interact with the more experienced leaders from your company?

Remember, you don't have to answer all the questions -- just give us your most creative ideas!
