One of our key services, the Living As A Leader Leadership Development Series, is a comprehensive, steady progress-over-time approach that equips leaders with depth and breadth of skill and knowledge. Participants include supervisors, managers, and other key leaders. In addition to offering this Series in-house, it is available as a Public Series option. This provides you the opportunity to send one or a few leaders at a time, launching each spring and each fall.
The Series consists of two critical elements for supporting the growth and development of leaders—skill-building workshops and coaching sessions with a leadership coach. Coaches help to ensure application of newly gained knowledge and skills in the workplace.
Leaders who successfully complete the Series will be workplace-ready—intentional and confident with the choices they make, instinctively knowing what to say and what to do.
One of the common challenges faced by organizations today is the retention of key talent, particularly of high-potential employees. Research shows individuals with less than two years on the job expressed the strongest turnover intentions.
The emerging talent of our organizations today has a high turnover risk with more than 25 percent of young professionals planning to leave their jobs each year. Consistently, we are asked what support we can provide for the high-performing individual contributor who has not moved into a formal leadership role.
Similar to all of our work, the Emerging Leader Series is a process, not a program or an event. This crucial distinction sets our Series apart from other professional development opportunities and training service providers. Not only is our content impactful, the multi-faceted process we employ ensures better results!
Participants of this Series include:
- Individual contributors with broad reach in their responsibilities
- Project managers
- Team leads
- Individuals being prepared for future leadership roles
A key distinguisher for participation in this Series is having zero direct reports on the org chart. Individuals who have direct reports can consider our 12-month leadership development series.
This self-directed Leadership Development Series is designed to help you become a more capable and confident leader. Our process focuses on the development of leadership skills and strategies, as well as frequent application opportunities. Leaders at all levels can participate in this Series. Most commonly, participants are individuals at supervisory and middle management levels of leadership.
This Series consists of 12 different eLearning courses covering many areas of leadership development. You may complete these courses online when it is convenient for you. Virtual coaching is provided by one of our expert leadership coaches after you complete each eLearning course.
Our typical framework for leadership coaching is outlined below. We are also adept at responding to the nuances that arise within specific leader situations and can effectively design a flexible approach to bring the most value to each person engaged in our leadership coaching process.
The one-on-one individualized support, in combination with practical application and accountability, provides a unique opportunity for development at any stage of a leader's career.
DISC is an assessment tool that provides a universal language of observable human behavior, essentially “how you do what you do.” A person’s behavioral style or “DISC” style is not good or bad, right or wrong; it simply provides an understanding of how he or she interacts with others. There are four behavioral styles with the DISC model:
