We help in three ways

Assess and benchmark your managers on the behaviors that matter

 

Equip your managers to create connection in a hybrid world of work

 

Provide your managers the support they need to change back at work

 

Assess and benchmark your managers on the behaviors that matter

Chances are, up to two-thirds of your people (yes, two-thirds) have little to no connection with their job or your company. Meaning most show up and do the minimum amount of work required and are willing to leave for a slightly better offer.

The good news is this connection can be built and sustained. Through shifts in what your managers say and do, your people will connect to more than just a job. Which means your company has more people showing up every day to do their best.

Find out how well your managers connect people to more than just a job. Our M.A.P. Manager Assessment scores and benchmarks your managers on the behaviors that connect and drive higher engagement and performance.

Equip your managers to create connection in a hybrid world of work

The science is clear: People have internal drives that, when tapped, take engagement and performance to a whole new level. The new work environment requires managers to have a more intentional approach to tap these inner drives and connect people to something more.

Give your managers a learning experience that is both impactful and engaging. Our From Manager to Motivator© program goes beyond theory to provide practical straightforward approaches and tools to enable managers to create the type of connection that unlocks latent potential within their people.

Just as important, our programs are designed based on how adults prefer to learn. We create experiences that drive exceptional levels of engagement, using methods that foster open discussion, real-world practice, and honest reflection.

Please note: We currently offer virtual-only delivery. When safe to do so, in-person and blended delivery options will be available again.

Provide your managers the support they need to change back at work

The classroom experience — whether virtual or in-person — is a critical part of the change process. Not only are individuals gaining the knowledge on how to change, but they are also building momentum to carry change beyond the classroom.

That momentum needs to be sustained. The simple truth is that change does not happen in the classroom — it happens back at work. And if there is no mechanism of accountability and support in place when your managers return to work, change is not likely to occur.

Help your managers across their individual journeys of change and growth. Varna Group provides the structure and coaching for your managers to receive the support, accountability, and reinforcement that leads to true behavior change.

Whatever level of manager, we can help.

From your executive-level to your first-time managers, Varna Group tailors our experience to the level of manager we’re in front of.
