For 20 years, Middle Management Academy (MMA) has been the gold standard in leadership training. We’ve helped the best and brightest reach their maximum leadership potential through hands-on, in-person learning.

Now, you can get platinum standard leadership training without leaving your home or office – the best of MMA fully reimagined for an engaging virtual learning experience. The new MMA training will retain its best practice curricula PLUS new and innovative content to ensure the virtual experience has the same affirming, energizing and community impact.

The updated curriculum and revised format ensures participants are engaged in an interactive virtual environment, while staying true to MMA’s original learning objectives:

  • Learn, explore and apply qualities of great supervision and management to improve employee engagement and successful performance.
  • Build management confidence through self and group reflection, discussion and learning.
  • Improve management competence through exercises and reflection.
  • Engage with others for team building and/or peer affirmation and support.

Virtual MMA attendees will meet for 5-hour live sessions once a week for four weeks. To enrich the live experience, training will include weekly assignments, individual and group work and community building activities.

Now, you can apply the motivational and communication skills that have already helped hundreds of rising stars improve productivity, shape organizational excellence and fulfill their potential as influential front-line leaders – virtually.
