The Manager's Toolbox is a suite of online courses designed to give new managers a head start on managing issues correctly and professionally with less stress and fewer negative organizational circumstances. The courses offer learners an explanation of the managerial mindset that all managers and leaders must adopt to succeed.

After careful consideration of the relevant and reference managerial and leadership factors, including such topics as dealing with direct reports, solving problems, planning and budgeting, and others, learners are given a series of video-based scenarios and asked to consider how they would handle the challenges presented for the most optimal results.

Learners will encounter four scenarios, which address the following topics:

Upon completion, learners are given a summary of what they've learned for quick reference while at work.
