Find out how you as a manager can successfully achieve goals, get committed employees, be respected and still have time for the important things. 

How to master your first leadership role!

The online leadership training with practice-oriented video courses, online workshops, personal 1:1 coaching by Bernd Geropp: Leadership in a nutshell!  

I´ll show you how you...

Just promoted to manager? Now what?

You have been promoted to group leader. Congratulations! Perhaps you have also become department head or you're a managing director of a small company. In any case, you are now responsible for employees.

You are no longer a member of the team but an executive.

That sounds good and maybe makes you even a little proud. Though, at the same time you are wondering whether you can meet the expectations. You are wondering what else is in store for you.

You probably feel like many new managers:

Why the Online Leadership Platform at all?

New managers, especially in small and medium-sized companies, do not receive proper management training. They are usually thrown in at the deep end.

They don´t get any support to master their new role as a leader. They have to learn everything themselves and struggle through. This also applies to entrepreneurs who hire their first ever employees and have never dealt with leadership issues before. 

This is where the Online Leadership Platform comes into play.

Step-by-step procedure

Via a practice-oriented video course with questions, tasks and checklists you will learn in detail what is important when managing employees.

I will show you step by step how to get motivated employees and what you have to do to be accepted as a manager by your employees.

I will show you how to delegate properly and how to successfully give feedback to your employees.

We will also talk about how you manage to set priorities straight in day-to-day business and deal confidently with mistakes, conflicts and emotions.

You will learn the basics of leadership when and where you want - whether on a computer, tablet or on the go on your smartphone.

Exchange in a community of like-minded people

A video course, however well-made, will not help you to implement knowledge. That is why a community and exchange are so important.

For this purpose I arrange a monthly question time for all participants via webinars. There are also face-to-face meetings in different cities on a regular basis. Specific questions and leadership situations can be discussed there in a friendly atmosphere. 

Participants can also email me for advice at any time. For special questions and management problems I am available to the participants for 1:1-coachings via phone or Skype.

Video lessons

For each video lesson there are associated worksheets, exercises and tasks the participants have to work through themselves.

The entire content is available for reading as a downloadable PDF file. You can also download the video courses as an mp3 audio file. This way you can listen to the lessons again in peace e.g. on a long drive. 

Specific questions and expert interviews

In 5 - 10-minute videos I address specific management situations and questions from the participants.

There are also exciting interviews with leadership experts with whom I talk about interesting aspects of leading employees or self-management. 

I conduct these interviews either on site or over webinars so that the participants can also ask questions to the expert.

"I have known Bernd for quite a while -  and have come to appreciate him as a leadership trainer and executive coach. His content, training and tips are consistently highly practical and take many managers to a significantly more professional leadership level."

Dr. Andreas Zeuch

"I particularly like the webinars, quality of the videos and the catchy practical examples."

Florian Frankl

"Especially the coaching via Skype, during which I was able to talk about my specific cases, helped me a lot. Thanks to discussions and advice I was able to classify things more objectively and made better decisions based on that. 

The video modules are also very good. The videos cover an overview of important leadership issues and precisely address the problems that entrepreneurs and owners of small and medium-sized companies have to face every day."
