Whos running your organization? That might be an easier answer than, Are they running it in the most effective way?
Corporate Learning Institute partner Dr. Susan Cain recently commented on the need for leadership development in organizations of all sizes. I have seen organizations whose performance was marginalized or plummeted because of the lack of effective leadership, she noted. Developing leaders is job one if you want to ensure that you are around next year. That means talking with them to find out what their struggles are, what missed opportunities they feel they have had, and what missing skills they need to do their job, Dr. Cain commented.
But how much leadership development is necessary for effective organizational performance, and how can it be offered in an affordable and realistic format? The Corporate Learning Institute helps organizations assess their leadership training needs and provides solutions through training design and delivery.
We really believe in our service delivery process which involves scoping your needs, developing a high impact training program, and evaluating the results, Dr. Cain commented. The Corporate Learning Institute maintains certifications in many leadership development tools. We custom-design our programs, so that clients get exactly what they need, Dr. Cain concluded.
The Corporate Learning Institute offers two comprehensive leadership-training programs, the Leadership Challenge Program as well as the custom-created Leadership Academy. The Leadership Challenge Program is designed for current leaders or developing high potential leaders. The program utilizes the Leadership Practice Inventory to help leaders assess their current behaviors and plan for improvement. The program is also based on the Five
Practices of Exemplary Leadership model. This model uses research to show that leaders are at their best performance level when they model the way for others, inspire a shared vision, challenge the process, enable others to act, and encourage the heart by providing positive affirmation to others. The Leadership Academy is also designed for current or developing leaders, and can be offered in a variety of formats. The Leadership Academy utilizes several different tools to meet performance goals. These include the Denison Culture Survey, self-assessment tools such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Foresight, and the Disc Personal Profile Assessment, professional development tools, and live projects.
In addition, CLI offers workshops that help leaders in specific areas. These include Introduction to Supervision, Its Okay to be the Boss, Situational Leadership, and Building Your Teams Innovation Strategy. These workshops can all be offered in a half or full-day format at our location or any location of your choice. CLI brings portable activities anywhere to enhance the interactive nature of the workshops. All workshops come with a workbook, a self-assessment, and an action plan to ensure that the gains made during the session translate into actual work performance improvements.
Offering the right training and development to the leaders in your organization can prevent problems and reduce frustration as well as build the skills and motivation of your leaders.
