The modern managerial mode
Our long-standing Open Manager Cohorts provide a practical and experimental space in which to rapidly build your confidence and capability to manage others. Led by a You Can Now facilitator, you'll learn among a cohort of supportive peers; drawn from diverse and innovative organisations, and all facing similar challenges.
Together you'll work through our Core Four manager modules, proven to purposefully and positively supersize your people-management skills.

Eight transformative weeks
Open Cohort Programme principles
Participants work and learn among supportive cohorts of peers; contracting around social learning principles, working together in the service of each others' development — and with group accountability baked in.
The action's in-between
Buddies, mini-missions, reflection prompts, transfer tasks and other social touches ensure that everything covered is put into glorious practice, with each new session beginning with a check in on what's changed since last time.
Nudge, nudge. Think, think
Tailored bursts of micro-learning support the live group experiences; served up in brain friendly, bite-size doses between them. The invitation is to continually try and apply new tactics, mindsets and experiments within real team and relational contexts.
Community based, lifelong learning
Participants join our super-active alumni community of practice — continually invited to benefit from a thriving ongoing calendar of coaching circles, live events and digital learning opportunities.
“Unlike any development programme I’ve taken part in before. This felt more like a series of powerful conversations that fundamentally changed how I think about my work and my style as a manager.“
