Leadership for Change
Leadership for Change is a challenging program for a company’s senior leadership to seek out, define and secure their organization’s future. It focuses on leading successful change to long-term profitability and enhancing customer and network relationships. It emphasizes development of leadership capacity at every level to harness the creative talents of an organization’s entire workforce toward clearly understood common goals. Participants examine successful companies, the people who lead them, and the leader’s role in anticipating and responding to the challenges of a rapidly changing environment. They focus on improving critical senior leader skills and emotional intelligence for improved effectiveness. All discussions are based on the challenge, “What else can we do to make our company better?” Program products include action plans for personal development and for organizational improvement initiatives. Leadership for Change seeks to strengthen a company’s leadership culture where senior leaders are role models of a positive, supportive work environment valuing integrity, teamwork, accountability and results. Leadership for Change is normally conducted in three two-day sessions separated by a month for application of workshop lessons in the workplace.
Foundations of a Winning Team
A high performing team must have six key characteristics: Clear Goals and Roles, Trust, Empowerment, Collaboration, Accountability, and a Commitment to Sustained Success. Our Team Performance Assessment measures team dynamics and performance against these characteristics. With the results, team members discuss and commit to a plan for becoming a more cohesive Winning Team with clearly defined team improvement and corporate leadership goals. Foundations of a Winning Team is conducted in three half-day or full-day sessions over a two-month period. It is an excellent growth experience for any leadership team seeking to remove hurdles impeding their success.
