One day, you're cultivating a promising individual contributor, the next day you throw them in the deep end: "Congratulations, we're promoting you to manager!" All of a sudden, they're subjected to demands they barely understand: Lead! Empathize! Perform! What they lack isn't knowledge. They need skills.
Let's face it: new managers aren't one workshop away from competence, whether they've been managing for a few weeks or a few years. Growing mastery takes time, practice, feedback, coaching. And that kind of structured ongoing learning approach just isn't possible in a workshop, video or book. That's why we created Oji Foundations.
