Learn from great managers
Beyond the recognition, GMA winners are also asked to contribute to making managers better across the company. Winners become an incredible resource by sharing what's worked for them through Q&A sessions, one-on-one coaching sessions with other managers, and other discussion channels. These great managers are given many opportunities to share what they’ve learned with their peers, whether it is a formal discussion panel or just-in-time advice offered to a manager when they face a new challenge.
Over the years, Google has built up a network of these great managers across every department and they help demonstrate the behaviors of good management and serve as reminders of the value Google puts on management.
