Are you a new supervisor? We can help!

Bud to Boss

Moving into a position of authority brings new challenges and new responsibilities—some of which might be uncomfortable. And as a first-time supervisor, it’s common to feel overwhelmed, anxious and stressed out about transitioning from co-worker to boss.

Bud to Boss is an online comprehensive 20-module e-learning program to help new leaders as they are experiencing challenges. The Bud to Boss Toolkit provides on-the-spot support to help new leaders succeed.

The Bud to Boss Toolkit is a convenient way to support your leadership skills. These bite sized, e-learning modules help you take what you learn and immediately apply it to your work. These modules were created by our partner, the Kevin Eikenberry Group.

  • Each module is a short-instructional video

  • Each module includes an Implementation Guide – comprehensive step-by-step instructions to help guide the learner through the lesson and to help develop their capabilities.

  • Learners are able to develop at their own pace – completing each program on their timetable.

  • All modules include downloadable templates, checklists or other tools to help implement the learning – true job aids – and a Course Assessment to help learners evaluate their development success.

The entire course is $149.00
