On November 7th we’ll launch our first webinar series, Bee School, designed to help management lead their teams and operate successful companies. Think of it as Beekeeper’s spin on business school, taught by an actual MBA professor.
Our mission to pave the future of work
for non-desk workers and those who manage them is at the core of why we started Bee School. Over the span of six weeks, course participants will gain valuable insights on how to keep employees motivated and engaged at work, as well as how to build and navigate inclusive work cultures.
At Beekeeper, we want to empower every leader with the tools they need to run a successful team, taking into account both human connection and technology. This is your chance to receive an MBA level education without the cost. No commute, no hassle—just results.
Managers are tasked with the important job of leading their teams and ensuring everyone is productive, as well as happy. In order to drive company success, it’s important that managers learn the fundamentals of organizational processes based on behavioral sciences.
To ensure that all levels of management are equipped for success, this educational webinar series is focused on analyzing workplace behavior, improving motivation and commitment, leadership, job satisfaction, group and team dynamics, and organizational design.
Who Should Attend
Any manager who wants to learn the ins and outs of key management skills including motivation, employee and organizational commitment, culture, emotional intelligence, and leadership/followership.
When and Where
Weekly 45 minute sessions will start November 7th. All six Tuesday sessions will be live streamed at 2pm EST and CET. Detailed instructions will be emailed to you after registration.
