A culture of feedback sounds simple enough, right? In reality, it takes a delicate balance to create one, and if implemented thoughtfully, the returns are limitless for any manager’s team.

It’s noisy out there for HR and People teams right now. Every week, a new headline or buzzy trend hits LinkedIn about where HR and People teams should be focused – notably, the “greats” (resignation, reshuffle, refocus), the “quiets” (quitting, firing, etc), the four-day work week… the list goes on.
As a manager, how do you know if your team is psychologically safe under your leadership?
Situational leadership: What is it and why it should be top of mind as you build your manager training program
If you haven’t heard about situational leadership, here’s your wakeup call.
As a manager, your main job is setting your direct reports up for success. At The Mintable, our main job is helping you get there. 1:1 meetings are without a doubt, one of the best tools at your disposal. These meetings between manager and report are sacred, dedicated, recurring times where the sole focus of the discussion is making sure the employee has everything they need to be successful.
The transition from individual contributor to new manager can be really hard.
When we hear the word ‘leadership training’ we often think of leadership programs specific to the C-suite – the big bosses in the shiny window-filled offices on the top floors.
Last year, The Mintable launched a brand new live learning feature for managers – Power Hours. Today, after receiving awesome feedback from both our manager community and the HR teams supporting them, we’re excited to introduce our brand new lineup of Power Hour topics for Q1.

Death, divorce, menopause, miscarriage, infertility, burnout and mental ill-health. These are just some of the challenging life situations that managers are helping their employees deal with every day. And this is in addition to being tasked with the more traditionally recognized aspects of the role – like managing team performance, meeting targets, and driving bottom line growth. Basically, our managers are stretched and desperate for support.
For many managers, the last few months have been a particularly brutal exercise of navigating layoffs.
Employee offboarding is often considered to be the end of an era between employer and employee. But it can also be the beginning of an entirely new relationship with the departing employee – if their manager handles the transition like a boss.
At The Mintable, we focus our training on the moments where managers have an outsized impact on their teams and business performance. A key place where this happens is during key moments in the employee lifecycle. Think – hiring, onboarding, retention, and offboarding.
The Mintable recently launched a new membership feature – The Mintable Expert Speaker Series. We’re bringing some incredible speakers to our community who have real-life experience and know how to inspire, inform, and educate managers on what matters most.
At The Mintable, our manager training focuses where managers have an outsized impact on their teams and the performance of your business. The first focus area is when managers are making leaps in their own development, like when they’re promoted from Individual Contributor to Manager. Our four-week, cohort-based accelerators, Manager Foundation and Manager Progression, give managers the core soft skills to succeed at those inflection points, and the tools to implement them after the training.
As anyone who works in Learning and Development can tell you, the laundry list of requests has grown longer in recent years, particularly in the area of manager enablement. Inevitably HR comes to a crossroads: is it best to build internally or partner with an external vendor to train and develop leaders?

Here at The Mintable, our cohort-based learning programs are just the beginning of every manager’s learning journey. One of the best parts about our global community of ambitious managers is the ready access to advice. We recently asked our Mintable Managers to share their reccos for the books that have been the most impactful in their roles as managers.
When you’re supporting a newly promoted manager, you want to set them up for success so that they can develop into a confident, effective leader and amplify performance and culture. And arguably the most critical stage to support newly promoted managers is right at the beginning when they are transitioning to the role. But what are the key areas new managers need the most support in?
