About the Program:

In response to the need for human resources training and professional development opportunities for managers and artists who manage personnel, TCG partnered with Target Corporation for eleven years to create, Expanding the Theatre Manager's Repertoire, a human resources training program. Building on Target's own human resources training methods, which exemplify the best practices in the corporate sector, this training was specifically tailored for theatre managers. This program gave theatre professionals the opportunity to step back from day-to-day demands and let them explore best practices and management principles. Topics addressed included: coaching and development, managing conflict, influencing others and mastering the change curve. Developed with considerable input from a diverse artistic and management leader group, the program was revised each year in response to participants' evaluations. Attendees included teams of up to four emerging and established artistic, administrative and production personnel with at least two direct reports.
