transform your leaders

Most executives want the results of high performance, operational efficiency, and optimal effectiveness. But it doesn't happen by itself. You can ONLY get an ROI if you make the initial investment - you can't earn interest off money that isn't in the bank. 

Leadership is the same. If you want results, it takes an investment in time, energy, and commitment. Quality matters when it comes to investing in your leadership development. This is where the Leadership Institute comes in. 

We offer Leadership Development made for those in Industry. While leadership is similar across the board, we tailor its application to situations specific to industry. Participants gain real-world, hands-on application they can learn one day and apply the next.

THE WORLD HAS CHANGED

The world has undergone unprecedented change. Even before Covid, we talked about "Industry 4.0" without recognizing that we have already moved to Industry 5.0.

We work under NEW RULES

of competition, production, and globalization.

LEADERS STEP IN WHEN NEEDED

In times of crisis, leaders step in. Now is that time. Proactive leadership allows us to look ahead, recognize the need to build leaders, and move forward. Leaders can then be in place - prepared - when they are needed.

LEADERSHIP CAN BE LEARNED

Even great leaders must hone their skills. Leadership can be taught to improve effectiveness. Leadership competencies such as coaching, feedback, and mentoring can help leaders improve success. It begins with learning the steps to implement leadership and applying what they learn.

LEADING IN A DYNAMIC WORLD

Understanding the role of “leading from the middle”, how it plays in the “big picture”, and the special nature of competencies and qualities to be exceptional in this role.

THINKING SYSTEMATICALLY TO ACHIEVE GOALS

Mid-Managers must ensure operational effectiveness. This requires a systematic approach to align people, practices, and resources to implement strategy and achieve results. Creating a new mindset is the first step to building new efficiencies.

INNOVATIVE CULTURE & EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Innovation requires managers to instill a sense of commitment and engagement in a success-driven culture. It’s more than just doing it better. It’s an attitude and value of constantly looking to the future and finding opportunities to take risks and lead.

ORGANIZATIONAL COMMUNICATION

Skilled communication at this level requires the ability to think clearly and express ideas and information to a multitude of audiences. It is also about listening to multiple groups, asking questions, and aligning words and actions to achieve results.

CREATING INFLUENCE

Compliance and mandates only go so far. Influence is far more effective in winning the heart, minds, and souls of others to reduce resistance and instill commitment that will drive teams and departments through challenges to reach shared goals.

MASTERING RESILIENCE

Leadership requires the ability to manage stress, uncertainty, failure, and setbacks. It’s not what happens to us as leaders but how we respond and what we do next. Participants learn strategies to enhance resiliency for themselves and their teams.

BUSINESS ACUMEN, PROCESSES & OPERATIONS

Senior leaders must understand how the organization works to optimize work flows, improve relationships, reduce bottlenecks, and increase efficiencies. This module helps participants recognize how to use internal structures to get the job done.

ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE & METRICS

No matter the metrics and measures, you can’t fix what you don’t know. Managers must understand what to measure, how to measure it, and how to put the systems in place to help others recognize and understand how to adjust those metrics.

BUDGETS & FINANCIAL DECISION MAKING

Some of the greatest challenges come when your top leaders make decisions without a clear understanding of the financial impacts of their decisions.  This module ties in decision-making to bottom-line results.

bUILDING ACCOUNTABILITY STRUCTURES

Accountability is at the core of any successful program.  Setting clear expectations with rewards and candid feedback is essential to keep goals on track. Leaders must learn the secrets to performance management, accountability, and maintaining forward momentum

CHANGE & CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Managing in the middle requires the ability to shift resources to achieve goals and deliver results. It also requires continuously finding new ways to implement better outcomes at all levels. We teach you how to implement new strategies.

MANAGING CONFLICT TO ACHIEVE GOALS

Conflict happens as a part of life and work. Managers must ensure that conflict is managed and resolved to help employees and processes continue to work effectively.  Resolving conflict with employees, colleagues, customers, and stakeholders is key.
