Leadership development

Leadership At All Levels. No leader’s journey is identical. Your organization has unique goals you want your leaders to focus on. We offer proven leadership development consulting tailored to your organization’s needs delivered through an innovative learner experience.


Experienced Leaders

  

Success depends on the ability of your experienced leaders to manage the day-to-day operations of your global organization while simultaneously setting a strategy and creating a vision. They need to develop trust with those they lead, yet they need to create consensus on key issues. They need to move quickly to solve challenges, but not so quickly that they fail to spot larger issues or learn from their experiences. They rely on what got them to their position while at the same time acting as a catalyst for change and innovation.


Unleash the competitive advantage of your experienced leaders and drive better business outcomes with a focus. Our leadership development programs and executive coaching training workshops can help.

  

1. Distinctive Leadership

Distinctive Leadership is an experienced leader approach designed to unleash the strategic advantage of leadership on both interpersonal and organizational levels.  This highly experiential journey includes assessments, executive coaching, a powerful in-person workshop, and ongoing peer cohort coaching to create a sustainable shift in leadership capabilities. 


2. Influencing Across the Matrix

In an increasingly complicated and matrixed environment, leaders need to be equipped to navigate relationships where they have very little positional power. It’s critical they form strong relationships and influence across a matrixed organization, build sponsorship for their ideas, gain stakeholders’ buy-in and support, solicit the cooperation of others, and drive their priorities. 


3. Leading Out Loud

Leading Out Loud focuses on authentic communication. When leaders communicate authentically, they are able to motivate and inspire others to drive performance and engagement. To inspire this commitment,   Authentic Leaders must first look inward and then clearly communicate the link between an individual’s job; the goals of the team; and the goals, values, and strategies of the organization.


4. Outthinker

Individuals and teams working through The Outthinker Process discover aFourth Option® for breakthrough solutions to challenges of any size. This experience, based on the work of author and thought leader Kaihan Krippendorff, drives teams to become more innovative, recognize the barriers to innovation, and discover new possibilities for their organization.


5. Why Should Anyone Be Led by You?

Leadership is a relationship between leaders and followers, and great leaders excite people to exceptional performance  – while simultaneously remaining true to who they are. They produce results by being crystal clear on their unique differentiators and by addressing the four critical needs of their followers: community, authenticity, significant, and excitement. Based on the article, book, and thought leadership of Robert Goffee and Gareth Jones, this experience will redefine your perspective on leadership.


High-Potential Leaders

  

Your high-potential leaders are the future of your organization. It’s important you keep them motivated and challenged as you ready them to assume responsibility for leading others and delivering strong business outcomes.


A special approach to high-potential leadership development is required. Coaching, mentoring, assessments, experiential workshops, and networking are just some of the elements that come together to create a compelling high-potential journey. 

  

1. Emotional Intelligence

Research has proven that our emotional intelligence (EQ) is more reliable in predicting success than our intelligence quotient (IQ). In this course, we explore the topic of EQ and how to develop our own EQ, thereby increasing our success with our career and relationships, both inside and outside of the workplace.


2. Leading High-Performing Teams 

High-performing teams don’t just happen on their own—even when you have highly-skilled, motivated individuals. It takes time, energy and commitment from all members to decide how to operate as a team. The most effective leaders skillfully facilitate and participate in this process. This highly-experiential session focuses leaders on how to accelerate the development and effectiveness of their teams using a proven team development process.


3. Mentoring

Mentoring is one way to transfer expertise and knowledge to new workers. Mentoring has been proven to reduce turnover and increase employee satisfaction. This course provides an opportunity for mentors and their protégés to work together, learn about each other, and determine the most successful working relationship. Techniques are provided for mentors and protégés to learn about one another, identify interaction guidelines, and set mentoring goals. 


 Frontline leader


Your frontline leaders are responsible for two-thirds of your global organization so it’s important they feel supported. Particularly as they make the turn from individual contributor to leader of others, they need to develop, or enhance, critical leadership skills.


Our frontline leadership training solutions are based on a proven approach that has helped thousands of individuals develop the skills they need to lead confidently – skills such as delegation, influencing others, handling resistance, and more. At the same time, we are flexible enough to tailor that journey to the needs of organizations like yours.


1. Delegation: Empowerment & Accountability 

Delegating work to others is one of the most basic, yet important activities a leader does; and it is deceptively difficult to do well.  This engaging and practical session helps managers examine, adjust and hone the core skills and mindsets needed for effective delegation.


2. Giving Effective Feedback

The leaders who are able and willing to consistently give effective feedback are exponentially more impactful than those who aren’t. This highly-interactive session focuses on how to give feedback in a way that reduces defensiveness and promotes trust, partnership and action. It helps leaders demystify feedback by taking the emotion out of it, and emphasizes how to make feedback “no big deal” by simply making it part of everyday conversations.


3. Leading People+

Leading People+ is exclusively designed to equip managers with skills and strategies for engaging and unleashing the knowledge, expertise, independence, and confidence of today’s workers. Leading People Plus includes modules on communication, building trust, delegating, handling conflict, leading change, giving and receiving feedback, and more. It is available as both an instructor-led and a virtual instructor-led experience.


4. Leading Technical People+

Leading Technical People+ is exclusively designed to equip managers with skills and strategies for engaging and unleashing the knowledge, expertise, independence, and confidence of today’s specialized knowledge workers: programmers, engineers, scientists, financial analysts, and more. This experience focuses on the unique needs of technical employees and the most effective way of leading them.


5. Level Up! Applications Lab

Learning is not a one-time event. It’s an ongoing process that builds over time through experience, reflection, practice and feedback. Our Level Up! Application Labs enable participants to take their initial learning to the next level by applying the mindsets and skills to more nuanced and sophisticated situations. The Labs provide a forum to reflect, restore, refine and practice their skills thereby enhancing leadership effectiveness. The most substantial benefits of the Application Labs include:

  • Increasing accountability and follow through on commitments
  • Enhancing long term stickiness of skill adoption and new habits
  • Growing leadership skills through next level learning and focused coaching


6. Presentation Skills

Powerful presentation skills increase a person’s ability to educate and inform audiences. Ideas, products, and concepts must be presented succinctly and compellingly. This course, specifically designed for people looking to influence or inspire, teaches a presenter to develop and deliver a clear, concise message that will quickly and effectively gain the attention of the audience
