M-Powered for manager success

A supervisor or manager role is often the expected progression when you’re performing well and want to develop further within an organisation.

To some, this transition comes naturally but to many others it brings a steep learning curve, a sense of frustration and a lack of confidence in your own competence.

Success as a manager relies on personal, employee and team success and, in turn, is a key factor in organisational success. Many managers are however not equipped to address all of these areas before stepping into the role.

Participant Testimonials

I have found the managers programme to be insightful, enlightening and an opportunity to develop and build my managerial and professional skills, particularly when interacting with various stakeholders. The programme was conducted brilliantly, allowing opportunities to practice what was being presented and taught to us. Thank you to Karien, Tonia and their team for the effort displayed in providing us with a well rounded programme. 


Audit Senior

The programme consists out of topics that are relevant to the role of a manager but also to any leadership role. The fundamental principles explained and practiced in the programme helped greatly with knowing how to deal with staff, approach difficult situations and improve soft skills such as active listening. I found great value from participating in the programme and I have started to implement the tools to my everday interactions.



The manager programme was amazing and thank you to Karien and Tonia for the tools you have given to us. I have learned a lot about the power of asking questions and also asking the right questions. The content , material and practice sessions were amazing. 


Senior Manager

The superpowers session presented by Karien and Tonia was wonderful for the exposure it presented as a practice ground for hard hitting topics and having discussions with your fellow peers and having the opportunity to discuss a matter with someone who is on the same or a level higher than you.
