Training Solutions

Depending on your situation, our associates will work with you to design a training solution that will address your needs.

One option is for us to design and conduct the sessions for your organization. Another, if it makes more sense for your own people to conduct the sessions, is to design the training and prepare facilitator materials and train-the-trainer sessions so your trainers/facilitators can deliver the programs within your organization.

Following is a listing of some of the training solutions we have prepared for other clients:

Leadership

Depending on the level of the target audience, this workshop will use the Transformational Leadership model, the Situational Leadership model, or the Dimensions of Leadership model. Some areas of focus are:

  • effective leadership characteristics and strategies;
  • "leadership" vs. "management";
  • defininitions of primary qualities valued in leaders; and
  • matching leadership approaches to organizational needs.
