Balanced Leadership Training Course Details


Questions to ask yourself about your leadership team

How valuable could it be to figure out now if a current leader will be successful instead of realizing at some point in the future that they are not?

How valuable would it be to have leaders who know how to prioritize and focus on their high payoff activities?

How valuable could it be to have everyone in your organization working on one goal with a plan and accountability to achieving that goal?

How valuable would it be to have a system to consistently hold your leaders accountable to achieving goals and results that are aligned to your organizations vision and goals? 


common Problems with leaders which this course will address

Many managers are promoted from the ranks, and often do not possess the knowledge or skills necessary to lead a team effectively.  In addition, they may not have known or understood what is involved in being a leader and therefore if this is what they really want to do.

We believe that most leadership training seminars/workshops don’t work.  They overwhelm the individual with lots of information in a short period of time and there’s no formal feedback loop.   Often you’re unsure what was learned/shared with your leader.  And when your leader goes back to the day-to-day demands of their position, this new information almost never gets implemented.

We believe that most mid-level managers are too busy working in the day to day business.  They are often overwhelmed and reacting to urgency rather than focusing on impact.  These managers have a hard time prioritizing and training their team to handle the issues that are escalated to them. They also have a hard time thinking strategically to proactively build systems that improve their operation.  In other words, they have become the bottle-neck!


We believe that the development of new habits and behaviors occurs over time. In order for your leadership to be truly transformed they need to practice, implement, and be held accountable to developing these skills, behaviors, and habits.

We believe that most paper based assessment tools do not thoroughly assess a leader’s skills or potential.  They lack the objective viewpoint, observation over time with standard performance activities, and human interaction to assess a leader’s ability.

Finally, we also believe that for most organizations the large investment for one-on-one training of management is difficult, and that a less expensive {group} approach is needed.
