Until you read this.
Since the #1 persistent challenge in business is effectively developing competent
leaders/managers, we have to ask, "What exactly does it take to successfully develop effective leaders & managers?"...and, "Why is there still a relentless problem with dysfunctional managers?"
You May Have Experienced
Leadership-management training and development as we know it today is disjointed and mostly ineffective. Conventional, traditional approaches just aren't working -- and haven't for quite some time.
The quote on our home page from The Harvard Business Review suggests that after years and millions of dollars spent, the training and development industry has really not improved - provided a truly viable solution - over the 20 years I've been in the industry!
Finally, A Solution You Can Count On!
1). With our expertise in human behavior and a holistic view of business operations, we approach this challenge from a unique perspective. We've developed a comprehensive 3 phase solution designed in a way that it can even be used by any company, globally. (Part of our mission is to serve businesses worldwide. We want to take away all excuses for poor management, no matter where a company is located.) We call it The Smart Management Initiative.
Smart Management Phase 1: Operations Assessment
Phase 1 asks you to take a step back and look at your business operations from a completely different perspective. Here's where you learn how to connect human behavior to operations, outcomes, and profits. It's incredibly eye-opening! You'll go through 3 segments that provide 9 points of assessment designed to be executed over a 12 week period and from which you can make immediate improvements and map-out additional actions as you move through the phases.
Each phase includes 1/1 on advisory sessions as needed along with weekly accountability and peer roundtable discussions.
Outcomes & Value:
> Immediate: Recapture $ (and we're talking thousands of dollars here!) and/or redeploy for more valuable ROI
> Long Term: Make better, more profitable decisions going forward
> Simultaneously expand your business management acumen and people management acumen and of those you lead. (This offers an exponential ripple effect of value).
Smart Management Phase 2: Cultivate High-Performing Leaders/Managers
In Phase 2, also designed to be deployed over 12 weeks, we help you successfully install a reliable, sustainable management infrastructure through our 5 Step Predictive System while developing your managers and management team. Taking a unique "systems approach", we help you embed leadership and management development into real-time, operational needs so you can continue to run and grow your business, while increasing leadership and management capabilities. Our mantra, "Grow as you go!"
Additionally, the system also serves to create a well-tested development pathway for future management candidates and/or high-potentials.
As a reminder the key reason you can have full confidence in the system is it fully leverages human behavior science ("hpt" - human performance technology) and it's been tested and proven successful in some of the most challenging environments.
Smart Management Phase 3: Momentum & Maintenance
Once Phase 1 & 2 are complete you move into nurturing momentum to maintain and cement improvements, progress and practices. This phase lasts as long as you need it. Every situation will be different. We stay with you for as long as needed, providing additional support and guidance along the way.
> All the proprietary content for all 3 phases is housed on a stand-alone website that can be accessed 24/7 via password and also includes access to any complimentary content that's added.
> You'll also be invited and have access to any speciality webinars - live and recorded.
As You Can See
This holistic, integrated, "spread over time" approach goes way beyond traditional "management training". That's why we get the results we do and you'll experience the value and return on investment that is surprisingly exceptional!
Here's what just a few of our clients have said:
/ "These results are very impressive. This is what we've needed for so long, but was not able to achieve." Corporate VP
/ "I can honestly attribute coming out of our hole was due primarily to your work." President
/ "It's ok if you invoice me early, we have already seen results and we've just got started," President
(I gotta say, it's really fun to have clients be so willing to give you money because they quickly realize results.)
