At Leapsome, we are committed to supporting teams to enhance employee performance and drive manager effectiveness. That’s why we are excited to announce the launch of Leapsome Academy, a significant expansion to our suite of solutions, which can be accessed for free.

In the current economic landscape, managers face the challenge of adhering to tighter budgets and focusing on profitability — all while striving to engage and motivate their increasingly overstretched teams in the wake of significant layoffs in 2023 and 2024.

Recent Gartner research has shown that managers are under immense pressure to drive productivity. A difficult task when they are still learning to manage effectively through the new dynamic of hybrid and distributed teams, and also have to enable work flexibility and ensure employee well-being to promote retention. 

The demands are intense, with manager workloads almost doubling since pre-pandemic times. And while the need for effective leadership is climbing, confidence in managers’ abilities to meet future challenges is waning. The resulting gap underscores a critical need for enhanced managerial development, which has been pinned as the number one priority for HR leaders in 2024. 

The question is: How to find time in manager’s schedules for training and development when the manager's job is no longer manageable? Leapsome has the answer.

Introducing Leapsome Academy, efficient manager training for time-strapped teams

Leapsome Academy was created as a response to the call for manager training programs that are bite-sized and affordable. Traditional training does not meet the demands of today's managerial roles, assuming managers can take hours or even days out of their weeks to focus on development. Our platform focuses not just on building out skills in bite-sized sessions but also on building strong management habits, which, according to Gartner, can improve job manageability by up to 71%.

1. Cultivating manager resilience

Through Leapsome Academy, managers can access courses that focus specifically on building resilient management habits. This initiative is crucial as strong leadership habits have been shown to enhance job manageability and reduce burnout significantly.
