Focusing on Results

Our Executive Development Program focuses on results by assisting Executives realize their full potential as Managers and Team Leaders.

 

Because the needs of every Executive are unique, we view each Development Program for Executive Group Leaders as a blank slate, and fill it according to the Executive’s specific learning objectives, then deliver a customized program with tailored case studies and real time exercises in problem solving and decision making.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finding the Gap

As the first step in our Development Program, an Executive Level Leader will:

 

Find The Gap. Before our Executive Development Program can be useful for am Executive Level Leader, The Gap between where they are and where they need to be must be identified. We help the Executive Level Leader identify their Gap by using analytical and self-assessment tools as needed (the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Strength Finders 2.0, Emotional Intelligence Assessment, 360-Degree Review).

 

Only then can we, working with the Executive, create an effective Development Program. Once The Gap has been identified, we create a Development Program to fulfill the specific needs of the Executive and improve their managerial and leadership skill sets.
