What is Transform?

Transform is live and on-demand training and coaching for the modern manager— designed to build effective managers, highly-engaged employees, and top-performing organizations. Each course and concept is backed by evidence to help your leaders and teams thrive and perform at the same time.

Transform offerings teach managers how to:

  1. Leverage their own strengths
  2. Set objectives and make decisions
  3. Communicate, motivate, and inspire
  4. Drive performance, measure progress
  5. Give feedback that fosters growth

Transform coaching and training uses a blended learning solution in which managers learn best practices and share knowledge, practice the new skills and behaviors in a supportive learning environment, and get the resources they need to go out and apply these skills day-to-day in the flow of their work.



Providing your managers with Transform training and coaching can lead to far-reaching benefits for your organization and the bottom line, including:

  1. Reducing Turnover: People don’t quit their company; they quit their managers. By equipping your managers with Transform training, they will learn effective leadership and communication skills, fostering positive relationships with their team members. This, in turn, can reduce turnover rates as employees feel more supported, valued, and engaged in their work. 
  2. Increasing Engagement:Manager relationships are the #1 driver of employee engagement. When managers are well-trained in manager effectiveness principles, they can create a supportive and empowering work environment. Engaged employees are more likely to be productive, committed, and passionate about their roles, leading to higher overall team and organizational performance.
  3. Saving HR Time: 30% of HR time is spent addressing problems caused by poor people managers. Transform training enables managers to handle various workplace challenges proactively. When managers can effectively address issues, resolve conflicts, and support their team members, HR professionals can focus their efforts on strategic initiatives and fostering a positive company culture.
  4. Cultivating Growth: Create a culture of feedback that fosters personal and professional growth. Transform equips managers with the skills to provide constructive feedback and recognize their team's achievements. This fosters a culture of continuous improvement and learning, where employees feel supported in their development and are more likely to thrive in their roles.
  5. Aligning Teams: Empower managers to set effective and meaningful goals that motivate. With Transform, managers learn how to set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals that align with the company's objectives. This ensures that individual and team efforts are well-coordinated, contributing to overall organizational success.
  6. Driving High Performance: Give managers the skills to remove roadblocks and get the most from their team. Through Transform, managers develop problem-solving and decision-making abilities. They can identify and eliminate obstacles that hinder team productivity, fostering a high-performance culture within the organization.

Live group coaching

Live coaching is a series of private, 60-minute group coaching sessions with our certified in-house coaches, delivered to cohorts of up to 10 managers every month. Live coaching is only available in our Transform Accelerator pricing plan.

Each session is focused on helping the group process their experiences, share learnings, identify opportunities, and create collective accountability for growth and development. The group will commit to a particular outcome or learning objective for each session.

Some focus areas that coaches typically work with manager cohorts on are:

Change management

Change is something that all leaders face. Your coach can help you prepare or walk through times of change. This may look like creating a plan, processing what is happening, or practicing for upcoming conversations.

Communication plays a crucial role in people management. Whether it's casting vision, giving feedback, having effective 1:1s, active listening, or working through conflict, your coach will help you think through how to make the most out of opportunities to communicate with your team.
Management style
Developing a management style that is authentic to you is important. Your coach will help you explore how to refine your style, minimize weaknesses, strengthen your skills, and show up as an authentic, effective manager and leader.
Managing up
Sometimes the challenges in being a manager aren't from circumstances related to your direct reports, but rather related to upper leadership and the organization at large. Coaching sessions will focus on these dynamics to define a path forward as you think about managing up and influencing the organizational culture.
New manager
As a new manager, your coach will be a safe, helpful, outside source to help you process your experiences, grow your skills and confidence, and build habits that set you up for success as a manager and leader.
Personal growth
Working with a coach is a great way to learn more about yourself. Your coach will work with you to focus on areas of personal growth. Conversations relating to personal growth could be about creating balance, stress management, emotional intelligence, overcoming mental distractions, expanding your influence, or identifying blind spots that are reducing your personal effectiveness and success.
Team culture
As a manager, you play an important role in developing the culture of your team. Culture includes the formal and informal beliefs, policies, and behaviors of your team, whether they are helping you achieve shared success or not. Issues around gender, race, and ethnicity, as well as conflict styles and styles of recognition, are common topics of discovery. A 15Five coach will help you think through the culture as it is and as you want it to be.
Team performance
Your coach will help you explore your team's performance. Identifying ways to motivate the team as they work toward a goal, recognizing how you can celebrate achievements, or talking through how you create a strategy for your team is part of maximizing team performance.

1:1 Coaching

1:1 coaching is a partnership between a coachee and one of 15Five’s certified coaches, focused on the coachee’s individual goals. 1:1 coaching sessions can be purchased for individuals in companies on any pricing plan; to do so, an admin can reach out to your 15Five Account Executive (AE).

This form of coaching is great for leaders of all levels who would benefit from bridging the disconnect between what they know and what they apply in the flow of work. Each session is a collaborative conversation focused on helping the individual gain the tools they need to achieve their goals. Their coach will use strategic coaching tools— inquiry, self-reflection, role play, skill development, etc.— to support them through the process of increasing self-awareness, practicing new skills or mindsets, and taking in feedback.


Here are some common questions you may receive about coaching and some insights from our team. Feel free to reference these answers or message us at for additional support.

Am I being assigned a coach because my team or I are underperforming?
Some of the world’s most successful people owe their success to working with a coach. The opportunity to work with a coach is an investment that will benefit you directly and the company overall. We’re committed to giving our managers and employees the opportunities they need to keep growing and developing into the professionals they want to be.
How is coaching more effective than if I learn on my own?
Coaching shouldn’t stop you from learning on your own. A coach will help you learn more about yourself and apply what you learn in the real world (which you can’t do by reading or taking a course). They will help you develop solutions for you and your team that fit your unique situation and specific goals. Plus, you’ll have a safe space to process your thoughts with an expert outside your company.
How can a coach help me without walking in my shoes for a day?
Knowing more about your specific job or industry is less important. Why? Because coaching is less about giving you the answer, and more about helping you find the best answers for your situation. Coaches specialize in helping people learn about themselves so they can either find the obstacles holding them back or the opportunities that can move them forward.
How can I find the time for one more thing when my week is already full?
Coaching is a key company priority right now. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, we’ll work with your manager to create the time and headspace you need to devote to your coaching sessions. Also, coaching is rarely a weekly commitment. Coaches usually work with employees 1-3 times per quarter.
Will my employer know what I discuss with my coach?
15Five has a confidentiality policy that strictly prohibits the sharing of any specific details discussed with a coach. You should feel comfortable knowing a coaching session is a safe space to be honest about what you’re really thinking and experiencing so your coach can help you break through challenges and achieve your goals.
