May 2016 —

CCL and Apollo Education Group today launched an online training program, Frontline Leader Impact, designed to meet the leadership development needs of first-level managers.

Fifty-nine percent of first-time managers say adjusting to managing people and displaying authority were among their top challenges, according to CCL data.

“We know a large portion of all leaders across most organizations are frontline managers, which makes developing that group mission critical for many companies,” said Mary Abraham, Director of Digital Learning Products at CCL. “In traditional training models, providing leadership training to those managers was cost prohibitive. Now we can offer companies a high-quality, flexible and affordable option.”

The course pairs CCL’s world-class, research-driven content and experienced faculty with Apollo Learning Group’s award-winning online learning platform.

“To engage today’s modern worker and drive real behavior change, learning needs a new set of tools built for the changing way we work. Learning that is available on-demand, more social and connected to our jobs”, said Josh Painter, Vice President of Product at Apollo Education Group.

“Our Accelerator Course Experience delivers a leadership development experience that has been completely re-imagined for the digital age. We are excited to partner with CCL to better serve organizations developing their frontline managers.”

The six-week online leadership class teaches frontline leaders the 6 competencies of effective leadership: self-awareness, political savvy, learning agility, influencing outcomes, communication, and motivating others.
