Foundations of Management Program

Foundations of Management Program
SEED Foundations of Management Program welcomes ambitious managers who are supervisors of groups up to 15 direct workforce.






Main focus of the program:

  1. People Management:

When managing their people, a common issue for mid-level managers is finding the best ways to motivate, build teams, establish the right feedback culture, set expectations and manage consequences properly. Most managers also need to improve in how they develop and coach their direct reports.

 So the main areas of development are:

  • Proper assessment
  • Adequate motivating
  • Conductive coaching
  • Consistent evaluation
  • Optimal allocation of tasks and responsibilities
  1. Executional Excellence:

Looking at effectiveness in execution, managers often experience difficulties in understanding tasks and expectations, they become reactive and thus frequently firefight. As a consequence their effectiveness in managing their time and their team suffers and, not seeing the big picture, they tend to become complacent.

Therefore we focus on developing:

  • Result orientation/setting priorities
  • Specificity of mandate
  • Identification of better practices
  • Change enablers/continuous improvement


Structure of the program:

  • 2*2 days „on-campus” and app. 2*2 months follow-up in-between and after „on-campus” sessions.
  • During „on-campus” sessions, areas of development are discussed plenary and in small groups through a highly interactive approach.
  • During follow-up periods 1-on-1 mentoring sessions help participants in following through on commitments they have made at the beginning of the program and in making sure the learnings are well absorbed and adapted to everyday work setting.
  • Follow-up periods also include individual and team exercises.
