    "The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority." -- Ken Blanchard



    Many managers and executives depend too much on their authority -- a limited source of power that doesn’t work well on peers and the boss. Consequently, they fail to get the results they want.

    Additionally, many individuals rely too much on positional influence, rather than developing personal influence. Positional influence is typically limited and constrained, but personal influence is something that can be grown and expanded. Another fact limiting influence, is that many tend to act selfishly like dragons hoarding their gold; rather than socially, like philanthropists who spread the wealth of their influence to benefit others.

    How to project EXPERTISE.

Programs With Flexibility Designed In

You might say, expertise requires memorization; skill development requires practice; and mastery requires real effort. But whatever level of learning you want, we follow a process (see below). Discover how the classes (and the modules within them) are organized.

Opportunities For Leaders

Smart people up there game before they need to play. This is, those on the fast track prepare themselves ahead of time for greater responsibility.  When the door of opportunity opens, they are ready to step through it. You may want to:

    • Prosper as a team leader. A tough role to play. Typically, you have all the responsibilities of a supervisor with none of the authority.
    • Get your ducks in a row — be a project manager. Leadership is important here since one (ideally) can evolve the group into a team.
    • Prepare to be a supervisor. It's long been known, supervisors don't lose that job because of lack of technical skills, they lack people skills.
    • Hop onto the fast track. Most organizations (although they won't say so) have identified a pool to promote quickly.  

Options For Individual Learning

Take a Self-paced Course

. You have the freedom work get it done when you want.

Take any Public Program as they come up. A nice way to meet others who are also interested in what you are interested in.

Get Coaching on the Dual Track. Take a module (there are many) and strive to master it in 30-days.
Access Customized Learning. We have subject matter experts who can put together something designed uniquely for you in the areas of:
Leadership,

Skill mastery, and

Digital marketing. 


Human Resource or Training Manager

Organizations have different delivery options.  For groups this includes: on-line, blended or even live training (we bring the instructor to you). Either on an individual class or as a cohort basis. 

One can also choose whether you want the coaching necessary to develop skills or would rather focus on skills. 

Rather than develop a class (an expensive proposition), you can

• License one or more in a series, and 
• Use the courseware with your own trainers or ours.
