SO WHAT IS MANN U?

Mann University is your opportunity to go back to school—without hitting the books. It’s our most popular program, and with good reason. Combining a breadth of knowledge and experience within an intimate, small group setting, we equip students with practical know-how to take their business and themselves to the next level. Mann U equips managers—the moderately successful, the floundering, and the pitifully unprepared—with a new perspective and pertinent skills, turning lackluster bosses into true leaders. This isn’t an elective—it’s a required course for all leaders-in-training.

MANN UNIVERSITY FOUNDATIONS COURSE

The three-day Mann U foundations course begins with an examination of leadership, including the way you perceive the trait in others and in yourself. We explicate your unique leadership style, helping you to harness your strengths and address your flaws in order to become a confident and compelling leader.

Once we’ve determined your unique approach to leadership and how to thrive within those bounds, we’ll explore common mistakes and share applicable techniques for rectifying them. You’ll learn how to identify and implement effective listening (an oft-underrated skill), master the application of efficacious feedback, and come to understand the motivation of your employees. We’ll even give you our time-tested tools for hiring (and firing), so you can implement a cohesive vision for your employees moving forward.

Once you graduate from Mann U, you’ll receive much more than a diploma; you’ll walk off the stage with a set of leadership skills designed to last a lifetime
