We're excited to host another session of the Fall New Manager Academy virtually! As we moved the Spring Academy virtual, with success, we will be hosting the Fall academy virtual as well! Learn all the same skills you would in person, and attend from the convenience of your home office or work office. Don't worry, we will plan some socially distant meet-ups for networking and further connecting with your class! Any questions about the virtual experience, email

Now It’s Even More Important

As companies and workers continue to adjust to our new normal – whether it’s in a totally virtual, a partially virtual or an in-person work environment – good leaders are even more important. New Manager Academy attendees will have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their jobs and careers. Companies will benefit from more effective and engaged teams with the skills to effectively move into the future. The results will be greater job satisfaction, improved performance, increased sales and a better bottom line. It’s a win-win formula for success!


Hear from recent graduates and their virtual experience! 

“Due to the pandemic I would have liked more classroom and interaction with the classmates. However, the ability to adjust fire and complete the class on zoom was great! ... The whole Treer Group did an amazing job of making sure we received the information we needed during these difficult times. I believe my organization will benefit from me now knowing more about myself and applying the lessons learned in the NMA.”

Robert Colon, Levi’s Building Components
Virtual Participant

“Every aspect of this Academy can be applied in some way to our organization and I look forward to bringing what I’ve learned back to everyone else to make us an even better team! Every session had something valuable to use in our day to day operations and was very helpful!”

Anne Marie Williams, Kairos Health Systems, Inc.
