What does it cost your company when you fail to train ineffective leaders?

  • One to four times a leader’s salary
  • Poor decisions that have a huge financial impact
  • Terminating an executive may result in paying out a severance package, hiring a replacement, lost productivity in the succession process, and legal costs if the individual feels that she was terminated unfairly.

Our Women’s Leadership Training, Workshops & Seminars build leadership skills to help your team work together better and improve your bottom line.

Our women’s Leadership Training has an individualized, inside-out, experiential, accelerated learning approach using a peer-coaching model. What makes it unique? It’s focused on assessments such as DISC, Strengthsfinder, and 360-feedback as well as individualized leadership development plans. As a part of each facilitator led-session, you participate in dyads or small group peer-coaching wherein you apply training (right then and there) to your unique work/life situation. This engages and motivates you to use what you learn immediately. Time-spaced modules allow skill practice between sessions. Pre- and post-work assignments also encourage application of the materials. This takes the training from a “nice-to-have” to a “gotta-have”.

Thank you for providing such an excellent training program.  I  attended your training on “Business Etiquette”.  I am excited  to share with you that I was able to use a technique the you suggested. During a recent committee meeting, Gloria closed her eyes and was  shaking her head while I was speaking, (she usually makes faces), so I said, “Excuse me, is what I am saying inappropriate”? she stopped what  she was doing, it worked!  I also feel much more confidence in  myself. With much appreciation, Lois.

Super-Learning methods allow you to learn faster, remember more, and have more fun. Audience involvement is central to our Leadership training because the more the audience does, the more effective their learning. Utilizing experiential activities such as small group discussions, role-plays, brain-storming sessions, and case study exercises, the curriculum evolves from concepts to everyday workplace skill development and application. Self-assessment and individual leadership development plans are used from the very beginning and at multiple points throughout the program. This encourages learners to identify their own needs and measure progress to determine whether they have met those needs/goals.

We often get promoted due to our technical expertise and our length of experience and level of knowledge. We start our new roles as leaders being very good at what we do. But we also need great people skills required to lead others to do what we once did. Our Leadership training focuses on these “soft skills”. Facilitating meetings, delegating, evaluating performance, holding  difficult conversations, dealing with conflict, influencing others, and motivating employees/teams seldom develop naturally.

It turns out, life at the top really is lonely. As you move up to the executive level, feedback from colleagues and employees becomes increasingly important, yet less frequent, more and more political, and less reliable. People are often biased, seldom totally objective. As you advance, support and guidance from others also diminishes. Therein lies the value of our training and executive coaching.
