Great team leaders and managers are pivotal to the success of any business. Enhancing the managerial skills of leaders through management training is common practice. However, selecting the right training—one that is really transformative and has a measurable impact on your business—is no easy task, or at least it wasn't until the inception of Dream Team Academy.
Popwork has chosen Ludovic Girodon, the author of the best-selling management book "Dream Team," to craft the educational content for its first management training program, Dream Team Academy.
