Organizational Leadership Training
As a rural business or organization you are continually expected to do more with less. At the same time, most of the supervisors who report to you start out with little management and leadership experience. If you have an HR department, they don't have the time or the expertise to provide leadership training. Webinars don't provide an engaged and individualized training program. it is expensive to send staff to meaningful training program.
Andrew has spent over a decade training and developing leaders to improve the performance of teams, businesses, and schools. Andrew comes to you to provide training to your entire leadership team and examine your team's strengths, engagement, and challenges to adjust the training. Your team will gain tools and learn strategies they can use the day after the training is over.
There are two training options:
1. Customized Training - Andrew spends anywhere from two full days to multiple 90 minute sessions at your organization. Based on the topics chosen, Andrew combines classroom learning, team discussions, and individual conversations. This gives your team a chance to learn, but also figure out how to implement solutions. Currently, there are three different leadership development programs:
A. Individual Strengths and Team Engagement - Your leaders will discover their individual strengths and how they can apply them in the workplace. Also, Andrew will visit with different teams at your site to learn more about engagement strengths and opportunities and discuss with your leadership team solutions to increase engagement.
B. The Leadership Challenge - Following the five practices of Kouzes and Posner's Leadership Challenge, your team will learn and complete activities around: Servant Leadership, Modeling the Way, Inspiring a Shared Vision, Challenging the Process, Enabling Others to Act, and Encouraging the Heart. You can choose one session or have a series with all six.
C. Manager's Toolbox - You have staff members that have stepped into leadership positions, but may not have all the skills needed to be successful. This two day program helps managers with productivity hacks, effective business communication, running effective meetings, building team engagement, using data and feedback to increase performance, and how to build the right team through successful hiring, on-boarding, and staff development.
D. Strategic Planning - Andrew works with your team through a series of activities to develop an action plan to help move your organization forward.
2. Quarterly Mentor Meetings - Andrew comes to your organization once a quarter and works individually with up to six individuals on your team. The group will spend an hour together at the start and end of the day and in between, Andrew will provide one on one coaching with each individual around strengths, workplace effectiveness, management, and leadership. Andrew provides monthly e-mails to these individuals to make sure they stay on their development paths.
Contact Andrew to set up an hour conversation that will consist of a complementary 30 minute strengths coaching interview along with a 30 minute organization discussion to assess your needs.
