Many leaders are promoted into higher positions with little training and minimal experience. We teach leaders the tools and techniques they need to be successful. We give them clarity about their strengths, uniqueness, and skillsets and teach how to harness them to achieve their full potential. We also equip leaders with new tools and a proven path that will excel both them and their department. With plenty of practice, students feel confident leaving this training equipped with the resources and knowledge needed. Using these techniques will help leaders achieve results by effectively guiding others with clear expectations. Most importantly, participants leave with the mindset of being an intentional and efficient leader.
TEAMS & COMMUNICATION - Can you feel the weight of employees not getting along, constantly disagreeing, and being skeptical of each other?
It’s discouraging when problems grow, decisions don’t get made, and progress stops. Everyone is frustrated and it’s hard to get any work done. At this point, you would benefit most by focusing on teamwork and communication training. When people work well together, the entire operation runs more smoothly; communication increases, respect grows, and staff stops playing the “blame game.” When employees work together, productivity increases and stress decreases. In addition, it helps improve morale and reduces turnover, which ends up saving a lot of time and money!
VALUE CALCULATIONS & ANALYSIS - Do you see improvements happening, but lack the methods to show the impact?
It can be frustrating to complete a lot of hard work and not know how to numerically show all that you and your team has accomplished. It can also be difficult to get things moving when you don’t have the measurements to show what needs the time and attention in the first place. The greatest benefit to you at this time would be to develop a system for value calculations and analysis, and this training will teach you how to do it. Value calculations and analysis includes concrete steps to calculate metrics, analyze them, create systems of collection, and sustain improvements.
EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT & HEALTHY CULTURE - Does your work environment feel uneasy from loss of trust, poor communication, and a lack of appreciation?
When the overall personality of your group or company is deteriorating and growing more distant, you want it to get better but are not sure what to do to help it. You would benefit most by improving the culture of your organization or team. There are tools and techniques with actions to counteract unhealthy cultures and improve employee engagement. There are also many important elements for developing a healthy culture including a clear understanding of the group’s higher purpose and goals, trust, respect, appreciation, and more. These elements along with group surveys, participation, clear priorities, and action plans help get a team back on track toward a healthier culture. A healthier culture will ultimately boost productivity, increase morale, and produce better results.
