Project Oxygen Manager Training

At Mutomorro, we understand the importance of effective leadership and management skills in today’s fast-paced and competitive business environment. That’s why we have developed a training course based on Google’s Project Oxygen, a groundbreaking research initiative that identified the key behaviours and skills of effective managers.

Background

A solid framework for manager development – powered by Google’s insight

Google’s Project Oxygen was launched in 2009 with the aim of improving the quality of management within the company. Through extensive data analysis and employee surveys, the project identified eight key behaviors that are common among the best-performing managers. These behaviours include empowering and trusting employees, providing clear direction, and being a good coach.

So why is Google’s Project Oxygen useful for managers? Well, the research conducted by Google showed that managers who exhibit these key behaviors are more likely to have highly engaged and productive teams. They are also more successful in achieving their team’s goals and driving overall business success. By understanding and adopting these behaviors, managers can enhance their leadership skills and create a positive work environment.

Our training course is designed to help managers develop these critical skills identified by Google’s Project Oxygen. Through interactive sessions, case studies, and practical exercises, participants will learn how to empower their teams, communicate effectively, and provide meaningful feedback. By the end of the course, managers will have a clear understanding of what it takes to be an effective leader and how to apply these skills in their day-to-day work.

The main focus of our training course is to equip managers with the essential skills and behaviors identified by Google’s Project Oxygen. We will delve into each of the eight key behaviors and provide practical guidance on how to apply them in real-world scenarios.

Throughout the course, we will explore the importance of empowering employees and fostering a culture of trust within teams. We will discuss strategies for providing clear direction and setting achievable goals, as well as techniques for effective communication and active listening. Additionally, we will cover the role of a manager as a coach and mentor, and provide tools and approaches for providing constructive feedback and developing employees.
