Comprehensive Programming, Lasting Value

   Managerial Excellence Core Training

We kick off this exciting developmental journey with three half-day modules designed to amplify self-awareness, communication, and leadership effectiveness.

Program modules:

  • Style Matters: How to Manage and Make the Most of Different Problem-Solving Styles (includes Coaching Skills)
  • Becoming a More Resilient Leader
  • Communicating with Aplomb

   Monthly Webinars

To ensure the training sticks and to deepen and develop additional skills, we deliver 30-minute webinars live every month at multiple times to fit your managers’ busy schedules.

Miss one? Check out the recording on our custom portal. We address topics such as:

  • Improving Resilience
  • Communication and Conflict Management
  • Dealing with Stressed Colleagues
  • Building Culture Where Kindness is the Norm

   Companion Videos for Managers to Train Staff

In addition to access to recorded versions of our monthly live manager webinars, we provide a short, recorded webinar for managers to train their staff. Our Facilitation Guide and Team Member Guide make it easy for the manager to bring the training and development to the entire team. By teaching, managers deepen their expertise, and gain support for a more collaborative, resilient, and effective culture.

   Deepen Communication Skills with Online Courses

Our custom portal includes access to our proprietary Arudia Win-Win Conversation and Arudia Coaching Skills courses. Replete with videos, scenarios, and quizzes in every lesson, managers can further deepen communication skills on their own schedule. In each lesson, managers apply the learning to their real-life challenges, preparing them to transform “difficult conversations” into opportunities to resolve issues in a positive, relationship and results enhancing approach.

What People are Saying

“Our leadership team loved participating in Arudia’s Learning Collaborative Management Academy core programming and are eager to continue with the additional monthly webinars. I personally know from working with Arudia for the last few years that our leaders will learn more than just tactical skills; they will also gain personal professional growth.  I am excited in how Arudia’s supportive coaching will support them in learning how to face our field’s on-going challenges with resilience,  creativity and innovation.”

Sydney Blair
CEO of the Center of Mental Health 


“NJAMHAA wholeheartedly endorses Arudia’s Learning Collaborative Management Academy for any organization committed to not just training, but transforming their managers’ skill and culture.  I’ve worked with Arudia for years, and value Anne’s expertise, insight, and ability to support managers in dealing with stress and staff more effectively.”

“The Management Academy is a great opportunity to move your organization forward to a successful future!”

Debra L. Wentz, PhD
President and CEO, New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies


“Arudia hit it out of the park with the bases loaded. A grand slam home run, Arudia transformed how our managers and supervisors are functioning – with lasting results. For me as a CEO one beautiful result has been to see the interactions fostered by the “trainees” as they have taken the investment we made in them and applied those new skills both on the job and off the job as well.”

“New managers and thirty-year veterans have all experienced new understanding and job skills that bring new life and energy to their work.”

Mark Cundiff Johnson, MD
CEO, Gateway Community Service Board

More from Mark Johnson

Participating Gateway managers said: 

  • “Wow, this is not just another training.  I’m really able to make use of these skills.”
  • “There’s a way to get ‘both in the box creativity and out of the box creativity’, it’s the people I ask for help, and I need both to get the best results.”
  • “It takes time to learn these things, you have to stop and practice them, but it saves so much more time when you have conversations with employees that are direct and meaningful; when you use [the Arudia tools] you get all that time back.”

History of Arudia’s Learning Collaborative

Arudia has been honored to provide managerial training to safety-net providers nationally since 2009. In Georgia we’ve been providing training to Gateway Community Service Board since 2016. As a result of the success in transforming Gateway’s culture and securing financial security, we are expanding access to our programming to all safety-net and similar organizations.

Upgraded and Virtual

COVID-19 has changed the way we are all providing service so for now we are not providing in-person programming. Notwithstanding these challenges, we are even more excited about our Learning Collaborative. This is because our forced use of technology will maximize the value of your investment — an investment to achieve your greater income and financial stability. Our proposed structure transforms a fixed resource (your dollars and our time) into a somewhat inexhaustible resource, making it more affordable. The program is even more interactive, making it more empowering and inclusive.

We are excited!
