Managers convene perhaps to review the past performance year, look ahead to the upcoming budget year, learn about the launch of new products or services, hear from the President or CEO, tackle a critical challenge, or receive updates from the various departments or regions.
What a great opportunity to carve out just 1-3 hours of time for a high-powered dose of leadership skills development!
- Everybody’s there, in person. (really important when teaching practical leadership and coaching skills)
- Each manager is exposed to the same material.
- We customize the content to reinforce what your team most needs.
- Your managers get to participate actively in discussions and hands-on skill practice activities.
- It takes less time than a typical training program.
- AND…it provides a stimulating shift from the predominantly business/financial agenda topics.
One of Ian’s hallmarks is his ability to leverage what comes up from the audience. Often a participant right in the middle of the presentation will raise a real-life issue he (she) is facing with an employee at work. Ian may invite the participant to engage in an on-the-spot role play where he (she) plays the employee and Ian plays him, the manager. As he demonstrates an effective way to respond, the others in the room always look on with keen interest. People often tell us that this real time skill modeling approach provided their richest learning from the session
