The success or failure of your organization rests directly on the shoulders of the people you put in leadership. Research shows 50% to 70% of all new leaders fail within their first 18 months. Investing in the development of your new leaders will set them up for success, keep them in their roles, and ultimately save the organization a lot of money.
Do Your New Leaders Have the Tools to Succeed?
It is almost impossible to overestimate the importance of your leaders. Whether they’re leading a team of two or two hundred, your leaders are crucial to the success of the organization at every level. Every leader needs to have the tools and resources to be successful in their role.
How to Create Success for Your Leaders
We know the basics of good leadership and if you Google “leadership development program,” you’ll get almost 700 million websites offering their ideas and services. How do you choose what will work best?
Adding to the confusion is what might work great for one person might fail miserably for another. How do you meet the needs of ALL of your new leaders?
You need a program that can flex and mold to the unique needs of each person. You need a program that addresses baseline leadership skills in ways that are accessible and easily applied for fast and lasting growth. You need a program that is flexible enough to address the individual needs of each person. Every person brings a unique mix of abilities and knowledge. You want a program that works with their individual existing strengths while creating opportunities to build and grow their weaker areas.
Our program is uniquely designed to meet baseline and individual leadership skill needs. We offer a mix of 1:1 and group experiences that build on one another in a sequential, logical order to create optimal learning and growth for every participant.
Developing New Leaders Program Deliverables
You will get monthly updates on each leader’s progress in the program. You will always know how things are going, what results are being achieved, and how each leader is applying their growth and learning in practical ways.
Each leader will have two private executive coaching sessions per month for 12 months (24 total sessions per leader). Our executive coaches deliver the highest quality coaching available. The purpose of coaching is to support each participant’s personal growth as a leader, reinforce and build on what they learn in the monthly workshops, and provide a safe space for them to explore ways they might be limiting their own success.
Twelve Half-Day Workshops
These monthly workshops are powerfully designed to provide the tools and resources for your leaders to develop sustaining leadership skills. Workshop topics include:
- Planning for Success
- Seven Levels of Leadership
- Leadership Strengths & Gaps
- Removing Barriers to Success
- Emotional Intelligence
- Dynamic Communication
- Influencing Others
- Problem Solving
- Productivity & Decision Making
- High Energy Relationships
- Health & Wellness
- Time Management / Balance
Technology: Energy Leadership Index and Emotional Intelligence
These tools provide your leaders deep insights about their strengths, weaknesses, leadership energy, and areas for growth.
The Energy Leadership Assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future. We use the ELI in the 1:1 coaching sessions to help leaders understand and harness their personal energy to achieve success.
Emotional Intelligence (EIQ) is all about understanding and managing yourself and others. EIQ is a way of recognizing, understanding, and choosing how we think, feel, respond, and act. A person’s EIQ is responsible for up to 80% of the success they experience in work and in life. We use EIQ in 1:1 coaching sessions to provide baselines and ongoing measurements of personal growth and leadership development.
Many organizations underestimate the importance of providing in-depth leadership development. They see an incredible individual producer and assume that person will bring the same level of competence and skill to a leadership role. Unfortunately, very few people are “born leaders.”
Most new leaders need guidance and resources that simply aren’t available internally. Reduce your leadership failure rate. Investing in your new leaders will save money, build trust in the organization, and create new avenues for strategic success.
