The Middle Manager Accelerator takes you down a path that you never knew existed. It opens your mind to new ways of thinking, which help build on your existing skills and use them in a better way. Difficult situations that you can face as a manager become easier to deal with, and this helps to take away a lot of the stress you can face on a daily basis. You will be challenged in a positive way, and the constructive feedback will help you to become better at what you do.
