Welcome to Cultivated Management


My name’s Rob Lambert and welcome to Cultivated Management.

For some, “management” is a dirty word. It’s a role that comes with so much baggage, and rightly so, there are plenty of terrible managers out there who manipulate, don’t care about their people and see management as a way to control.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

It’s entirely possible to become a manager who leads with kindness, clarity and outstanding behaviours. It’s entirely possible to empower your team to fix problems, work with their strengths and align around a compelling purpose. It’s entirely possible to spend your time removing barriers, improving your skills and learning how to move forward.

I call this being a Cultivated Manager – someone who purposely tends to their own skills, experiences and behaviours. Someone who learns their way to success at work.

And on this blog I show you how.

What to expect

I’ll show you how to take care of yourself, communicate like a pro, SHIP value, and remain highly employable.

If you want to be a brilliant manager, you have to be a brilliant person.

Your management will never be more or less than you as a person.

You became a manager to get something done, I’m here to help you achieve that.
