General Management Salon NYC

Michael Dearing

Many of you are being shoved into leadership and management roles because you are great at your jobs, because your company is growing rapidly, or both. But the talents that make you a great individual contributor are not the same ones that will make you a great manager. And most of you -- the best and brightest of your generation -- won’t go to business school or get long apprenticeships learning how to manage from a terrific boss. 

This two-evening immersion in management thinking was designed with all this in mind. Check out the syllabus here. Using simulations, case studies, and group exercises from the classrooms of Stanford University and Harvard Business School we will tackle: 

— Setting goals for you and your team 

— Performance management 

— Managing engineers and artists 

— Organization design 

— Executive communication 

This is the first time the class is being offered in New York City. I have taught this class for years and many people who take it say that it changed their lives. This immersion comes with a decent workload. In addition to five-plus hours in-session, plan on about five hours of prep work outside of class.  But if you prepare and attend with your full, real self I promise you will have a great experience.

The class is limited to people who work at 1stDibs, Harry's, Panjiva, or Primary. Enrollment is capped so we can get to know each other in a small group setting. If you join the class, tuition is free and all your reading materials will be provided at no charge. You will have lots of delicious food and tasty drinks while you are in class.

As an alum of General Management, you will have 24x7 access to everything Harrison Metal has to offer for the rest of your life -- case studies, elective classes, our Slack community, small group- or 1:1 coaching. Apply by clicking on the link to the right.
