Leadership Development Workshops

Clients regularly ask us to design and deliver specific leadership development workshops, frequently focusing on themes which have emerged during individual or team coaching. The aim of these workshops is to enable senior or high-potential executives to enhance their leadership skills within the context of their Organisational and professional goals.

These events are entirely tailor-made, based on careful observation and assessment of what each client needs. We design each workshop in collaboration with key individuals from the business concerned, including the leaders and representative participants of the group whenever possible.

All workshops are highly interactive. We use a blend of models and skills-based tools which are fundamental to good leadership and management practice. These interventions enable participants both to extend their understanding of leadership concepts and to generate practical strategies and behaviors which will bring immediate results in the workplace.

Our leadership development workshops include the following:

Course Descriptionhttp://ts2.mm.bing.net/images/thumbnail.aspx?q=5054953807218341&id=8c1e82aa79897c4c1c1ab7e9a0921671

This workshop is for business professionals who are motivatedto achieve success in both their work and
personal life.  Participants will learn about the nature of Emotional Intelligence.  They discover where they have strengths and how to leverage them.  They also identify
areas for improvement and learn how to achieve greater balance by improving in specific EI skills.  The end result
will be richer relationships with those around us. 

Emotional Intelligence areas of focus include:

  • Self-perception – the inner self.  Designed to assess feelings of inner strength and confidence, persistence in the pursuit of personally relevant and meaningful goals while understanding what, when, why and how different emotions impact thoughts and actions.
  • Self-Expression – extension of self-perception.  Addresses the outward expression or the action component of one’s internal perception and assesses one’s propensity to remain self-directed and openly expressive of thoughts and feelings, while communication these feelings in a constructive and socially acceptable ways.
  • Interpersonal – how we interact.  Develop and maintain relationships based on trust and compassion; articulate an understanding of another’s perspective; act responsibly while showing concern for others, their team, or their greater community/ organization.
  • Decision Making – the way in which one uses emotional information; how well one understands the impact emotions have on decision-making, including the ability to resist or delay impulses and remain objective so to avoid rash behaviors and ineffective problem solving.
  • Stress Management – how well we can cope with the emotions associated with change, and unfamiliar and unpredictable circumstances, while remaining hopeful about the future and resilient in the face of setbacks and obstacles.

What is it?
Emotional intelligence is our unique set of emotional and social skills that allows us to understand and express ourselves, understand and relate to others, and cope with the pressures and demands of our personal and professional lives.  Regardless of a person’s intellectual intelligence (IQ), an individual’s success is still governed by how well they communicate their ideas and interact with others.  Emotional Quotient is about the intelligent use of emotions, not becoming more emotional and is a critical factor in a healthy and successful life. Business professionals need to have a strong EQ to handle complex relationships in today’s fast-paced business environments. These leaders will cope better with   stressful situations, will exude confidence, and will operate in a more flexible and optimistic manner.

                        Leadership Skills using the Leadership Judgment Index

Course Description
This program introduces participants to the Accelerence Leadership Skills Model.  Participants are asked to complete a Leadership Skills Index self-assessment which is used to highlight each participant’s leadership capacities for each of the 23 leadership skills.

The Accelerence Leadership Skills model lays out the universal skills and behaviors required to thrive in today's economic environment. 

Accelerence uses an assessment tool that measures an individual’s skill capacity in each of 23 skill areas.

Implementing a focused leadership skills framework for your organization will help your leaders:

  • Understand the role of the effective leader in your organization
  • Develop more personal satisfaction with work and personal life
  • Facilitate ownership being transferred to the people doing the work
  • Expand skills and competencies

Attitude and Motivators with PIAV

Course Description

How can you place the right people in the right jobs and motivate them to achieve more for the organization?

This challenge requires paying attention to values.http://ts2.mm.bing.net/images/thumbnail.aspx?q=4523090851922829&id=caea26c684d1d755334ae8fd7ab19f1f
Values are the drivers behind   behavior, the motivators
of actions Abstract concepts in themselves, values are
principles or standards by which we conduct ourselves.
An individual’s experiences references, education, and
training tell us WHAT they can do. A behavioral
assess­ment tells us HOW they will do it. It is through
comprehension of personal values, however, that we
begin to understand WHY they do what they do.  An
awareness of an individual’s personal value system
enables leaders to provide encouragement that
satisfiesthe employee’s inner drive.

For example, through understanding his values, we can determine if an individual’s position is likely to be rewarding or not. It is advantageous to know what motivates an employee early on rather than waiting for time to reveal this information.

What is it?

This seminar incorporates the Motivation Insights assessment to help raise awareness of one's attitudes and values.  Each participant completes the Personal Interest, Attitudes and Motivators self-assessment and receives a personalized PIAV report.  The Workplace Motivators report identifies six different values that motivate an individual to take action. These include:

  • Theoretical: A passion to discover systematize and ana­lyze; a search for knowledge.
  • Utilitarian: A passion to gain return on investment of time, resources and money.
  • Aesthetic: A passion to add balance and harmony in one’s own life and protect our natural resources.
  • Social: A passion to eliminate hate and conflict in the world and to assist others.
  • Individualistic: A passion to achieve position and to use that position to influence others.
  • Traditional: A passion to pursue the higher meaning in life through a defined system of living.
