About Us

Our mission is to equip managers to lead and thrive in an ever changing world of work.

Organizations thrive when their people are properly supported, and their talents cultivated. It is the right way to lead, and the only way to lead responsibly into the future.
Our story

New Level Work is a coaching and training platform designed to guide managers to new levels of performance.

New Level Work changes mindset and equips managers with needed competencies and skills so everyone can feel valued and create value in the ever-changing world of work.

  • 100% virtual
  • technology-enabled
  • proven effective for managers at every level.

The world of work is constantly changing, but one thing remains the same: everything happens with and through your people. New Level Work, formerly known as BetterManager has been working on this for over 20 years; it’s in our DNA. What we have come to learn from all the organizations we have partnered with – is we take managers, teams, and business results to a new level by accelerating leadership development. We have outgrown “BetterManager” and “NewLevel” is now more aligned with what our incredible coaches and facilitators do every day, enabled and supported by our new platform.
