The XTENSOS GoActive Management Training helps new and experienced managers to develop their ability to actively manage and motivate teams.

Not all managers are equipped with a natural talent to manage people. About 1 in 10 people possess this talent naturally while the rest have to learn it, according to a recent Gallup study.    

Moreover, most promotions to managerial roles are based on the performance and experience proved in the latest roles: the newly promoted managers find themselves in a position where they need a different set of skills, besides the professional expertise they possess, that will help them find the right people for their team, engage and motivate their staff and evaluate performance.

70% of the varience to employee engagement ties back to the manager.


The GoActive Management Training is focused on building specific skills and offers a set of tools that will contribute to an increased level of employee engagement and productivity.
