Over the course of two days, we will cover the following critical considerations when preparing your future leaders.  Each topic is coupled with hands-on assignments (no lecture! no theory!) so that you leave with an actionable, implementable plan for beginning sustainable leadership development in your organization.

*Note: Each registration is for TWO individuals; you MUST bring a “thinking partner” with you.

Imagine having a discussion with your colleague on the porch overlooking the sparkling sea – or out on the beach itself!

Who Gets Leadership Development?

This is a critical discussion and the first step in formulating the plan for leadership development in your organization.

By 2030, Millennials and Gen-Z will make up 75% of your workforce – they are also your future leaders. But Gen-X – currently in their 40’s and 50’s – are the most likely to move in to leadership roles in the near future. Are they prepared?

Each of these generations has a different learning style and preference. Should you pick-and-choose who gets trained? Train them all? Accommodate differences or determine “the way” to become a leader in your organization?

Until we determine who gets leadership training in your organization (and it may be different for each attendee) we cannot formulate the rest of the developmental plan.

Which Skills Are Most Important?

The second half of Day 1 will help you to identify the skills that will be most critical for the leadership of your organization, going forward.

As you know, business is changing rapidly and continuously, so this is the time to pinpoint the skills and behaviors you believe will be crucial to your future success.

Based on our 25+ years of experience and research in to successful leader behaviors and leadership development training programs, The Training Doctor has identified 5 core areas for leadership learning and success. They are:

              1. Interpersonal Skills
              2. Business Acumen
              3. Personal Development
              4. External Experience and Insight
              5. Next Level Thinking

We will examine each of the core areas, as well as the myriad of topics associated within each of them, to determine the top 10 or 15 skills you feel are critical for the future success of your organization.

Where Will the Training Come From?

If your organization does not have a designated training department – don’t despair! Resources abound – you just need a guide to show you the way.

On the morning of Day 2 we’ll open up a world of training opportunities to you – from free to low-cost to custom–built – as well as delve into the learning styles and preferences of the various generations within your workforce, so that your chosen offerings will be well accepted. 

With your thinking partner, you’ll determine the best resources for your organization, in alignment with the skills needed (identified in the previous session), to begin to equip your future leaders.

What Does Implementation Look Like?

In the final session of the workshop, you will pull all of the prior topics and activities together to determine how you will go about rolling out your leadership development program. 

You’ll develop a timeline; a prescribed order of activities supported by hands-on experiences; a way to monitor, evaluate and reward each employee’s activities; and we’ll discuss whether the development is part of a formal performance management program or not.

In addition, you will receive a copy of:

Future-Proofing Your Organization
