The a leap from an individual contributor to leader is a big one. While we also work with executive-level leaders as well, the bulk of our programming is designed to help frontline and middle managers develop practical skills.
Research indicates that frontline and middle managers are responsible for managing more than 80 percent of an organization’s workforce and are directly responsible for executing an organization's strategy. Additionally, those in these roles are overwhelmingly just playing it by ear, as many don't receive leadership training until they've been in the role for a few years (DDI Frontline Leader Project).
This lack of just-in-time training creates both a lack of confidence and a lack of readiness to lead. Managers are struggling to have difficult performance conversations, and need tools to provide timely feedback, translate organizational goals into action, and engage their teams.
Laura works with your organization to develop customized learning experiences to support your leaders and managers to develop key leadership competencies such as:
Learning labs provide quick upskilling for managers in an interactive 1-2 day bootcamp training format with options for follow-up support. Focus areas include: The New Manager, Leadership Communication Essentials, Coaching Conversations, and Women in Leadership
A comprehensive leadership development training program to help managers learn and implement essential leadership competencies. Participants meet on a monthly basis for training with individual coaching in between trainings to support implementation over 12-15 months
Activate is a facilitated peer learning experience. With less of a focus on training, participants focus on sharing experiences, action planning, and group accountability for execution in a mastermind-style format. The Activate Circle typically meets monthly over over 6-8 months.
One-on-one coaching for leaders helps them assess areas of strength and challenge, build confidence and self-awareness, and create action plans to achieve growth goals in critical leadership competency areas. Can be used in conjunction with a 360º assessment.
Taking your leadership team off-site is a great way to energize your people, strengthen relationships, and give some laser focus to a particular area. Laura facilitates 1- & 2-day out-of-the-office sessions at a retreat facility of your choice.
360° assessments provide leaders with objective feedback from observer data. This feedback helps leaders identify their leadership strengths and areas for improvement, and guides the creation of a personalized leadership development plan.
A 12-week coaching and small group learning experience for Black women leaders and managers. Participants strengthen leadership skills, share and process workplace experiences, and create action plans to meet professional goals. Can be facilitated within organizations as diversity & inclusion initiative.
Laura will learn more about your goals and challenges, help you decide the most appropriate program, and discuss customizing a leadership development approach to meet your needs.
Based on your no-pressure conversation, she will provide recommendations with detailed pricing information and next steps for how to get started.
