Higher Education, Leadership Development and Manager Coaching

Higher education must continue navigating the pandemic’s uncharted waters, unpredictable economic fluctuations, and deepening national dialogues on race, gender, and equity. With so much at stake, leaders in higher education need to be more than just great scholars and teachers–they need to be effective managers, too.

The students, faculty, staff and community members they serve are depending on them. And you can depend on us.

At BetterManager, we're always ready to rise to the occasion. We provide three impactful opportunities for Higher Education partners through our unique virtual leadership development platform.

These opportunities include:

  • Management and leadership development solutions for staff and administrators.
  • Continuing education, custom education, and workforce development programs;
  • High value-add Leadership content for your academic programs (e.g. Business Schools, Engineering Schools, professional graduate degree programs such as MBA, MPA/MPP, JD, etc.);

These partnerships with Higher Education allow staff, faculty, students, and the larger Higher Education community with opportunities to realize their full potential.

The BetterManager Difference

Our 100% virtual leadership development platform offers a unique combination of 1:1 coaching, group training, and technology that allows you to scale the best executive-quality leadership development to all levels of managers, in every location, and in a manner that truly impacts and inspires day-to-day manager performance.

Additionally, our tech-driven platform delivers actionable data intelligence so you can understand the areas of need within your organization, and track the impact of our programs  on leadership behavior.

At BetterManager...

  • We combine 1:1 coaching and group training sessions for all levels of leadership, from individual contributors about to become managers, to the vast middle management layer, all the way up to the most seasoned executives.
  • We have utilized the best insights into what makes for effective managers from sources such as Projects Oxygen and Aristotle (Google) to create a pragmatic 360 assessment which pinpoints the areas your leaders need help with most.
  • We’ve built a global network of ICF-certified coaches with an average of 10+ years of real-world experience (at minimum) who go through extensive vetting and training before working with us.  Our coaches receive satisfaction scores of 9.5 out of 10.  Satisfaction is guaranteed, so at any point, if a manager is unhappy with their coach, they can start over with a new one. 


  • Since our platform is virtual, it is cost-effective enough to scale leadership development to all levels within your organization, including those who usually do not receive it.
  • Our technology platform includes an HR Dashboard which allows you to see aggregate data intelligence on the coaching program and measures progress over time, along with a content app to further our programs.  We also have the ability to run organizational assessment surveys and pulse surveys as needed.
  • We currently have over 200 companies utilizing the platform with over 95% repeat customers.
