Grovo Launches New Microlearning® Program for First-time Managers, Featuring 200 Science-backed Lessons

Supports managers with the skills to lead teams and drive company goals from day one

San Francisco, CA - Dec 7, 2017 - Grovo, the world’s leading Microlearning® solution, released its First-time Manager Microlearning® Program this week, expanding the breadth and depth of its rapidly growing, award-winning Microlearning® library. Featuring more than 200 action-oriented lessons covering 10 essential topics, this Microlearning® Program makes it turnkey for organizations to quickly teach new managers the skills and behaviors they need to build strong relationships with direct reports, lead teams with confidence, and drive business performance.

According to a research study conducted by Grovo in partnership with independent research consultancy Wakefield Research, 87% of middle managers wish they had received more timely, comprehensive management training when they first became managers and 92% would be more likely to apply new managerial skills if training were more engaging. The fact is that the majority of first-time managers are not set up to succeed from the start and it costs U.S. businesses billions annually in lost productivity and inefficiency.

“Figuring out how to help new managers navigate these common pitfalls is on just about every executive’s mind today,” wrote Grovo Chief Learning Officer Summer Salomonsen in a blog post announcing the program. “Armed with the latest management research and learning science, Grovo set out to build the first program for new managers that's actually relevant to the challenges they face day-to-day. What emerged is an engaging, comprehensive Microlearning® program that teaches the behaviors new managers need to perform their best.”

Grovo’s First-time Manager Microlearning® Program is designed to solve the biggest challenges faced by new managers. Each lesson is developed by experts using Grovo’s proprietary Microlearning® method, with memorable stories, interactive challenges, and powerful real-life examples that instantly resonate with first-time managers. At under 5 minutes each, these self-paced lessons are accessible right when managers need them most. This makes it possible for even the busiest managers to gradually build their skills, reinforce what they learn along the way, and get progressively better at managing.

The First-time Manager Microlearning® Program spans 10 essential topics including: fundamentals of management, hiring & onboarding, performance management, diversity & inclusion, change management, finance & budgeting, delegating & coaching, career development, problem solving, and leadership.

Grovo’s Microlearning® library includes thousands of lessons spanning cross-functional skills, management development, digital skills, and compliance topics. Lessons are available within Grovo’s own companion learning platform, as well as easily accessible within all leading learning management systems. Lessons are mobile responsive and designed to engage learners on any device, in the office or on the go.
