  • The PROCESS

The workshop and coaching processes have been designed to develop personal skills and to intensify the motivation of people in management and executive levels. It is personalized for each participant.

The Managing Change – Key Leadership Skills program consists of two one-day workshops several weeks apart. The workshop is based on extensive research in effectively leading and managing change.

Prior to the workshop participants will be asked to complete two assessments:

1) Keys to Managing Change assessment

2) Insights Personal Profile Assessment to identify behavioural and communication styles

These assessments will be essential tools that we will build on during workshops.

The workshop format is interactive and utilizes multimedia. The leadership skills and knowledge are learned through video, interactive exercises, facilitated dialogue, group activities and personal exercises. During each workshop participants will be exposed to key proven leadership and management practices. They will then be coached to make meaningful “Action Commitments and Plans” of how to utilize these concepts in their daily work. During the time between Day I and Day II of the Effective Leadership program the workshop facilitator / personal coach will be available by phone to coach participants through any challenges they may be experiencing.

During Day II of the workshop we will explore how successfully each participant has been able to integrate the learning from Day I, and how they have been able to apply their “Action Commitments and Plans”. We will then determine what actions and strategies need to be improved upon, what additional knowledge and skills are required, and what new goals will develop positive leadership skills and habits.

Upon completion of the Managing Change – Key Leadership Skills program each participant will receive a certificate of completion.
