“For as long as humans have formed tribes, it has been important to bond those tribes”

For many first time managers, this sudden shift to being a people manager may be disorienting. Ingraining the “tribe” philosophy of creating bonds, establishing trust and working collaboratively becomes important!

To tackle this shift from a maker to a manager, Jombay runs a “First Time Manager” program based on the philosophy of “UBUNTU – I am because We are”.

The program builds the mindset of “We vs Me”, by fostering essential skills for Managing Self, People & Performance and covering aspects such as:

  • UPTIME – Improving your & team’s productivity with time management & planning
  • BIOMETRICS – Dealing with unique fingerprints i.e. unique personalities at work
  • USER INTERFACE & EXPERIENCE – Improving your team’s experience 
  • NORTHBRIDGE – Driving team synergy, Developing team members & Improving performance with effective feedback   
  • TROUBLESHOOT – Fostering collaboration, fixing unconscious biases & resolving conflicts 
  • UPDATE & UPGRADE – Adapting practices & processes to be more inclusive


Apart from Pre-Program Assessments, Master Classes and Digital Learning, we also introduce a blend of engaging methods like Improv theater, ALP (Action Learning Project) based teach back sessions, case study based sessions and more.

We have run this program for many of our customers (e.g. Quantiphi, Simplify, ABinBev, Acko, Qualcomm etc.) where participants found the content relevant, were impacted by the meaningful learning experience and the ability to apply it at work!
