6 Month Leadership Style & Managerial Effectiveness for Experienced Managers (Public Workshop)

Over 4,000 leaders have attended this public training program and rated it a “9.2” average on a 10-point scale.

“We reviewed the top Leadership offerings for one of our Senior Research Scientists and selected LSA’s Public Leadership Coaching Training Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the coaching, approach, and results was phenomenal. While the other coaching programs may be better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.  This was by far the best public leadership coaching training program.”
Stacy Porter | Senior Manager L&D | Roche

“I have sent many managers to this coaching and leadership seminar with consistently good results. I found that with several people it was the most effective method for having them hear the problems they had interfacing with people at work – their manager, subordinates, and peers alike.”
Howard Smith | President | Clarity Software

Personal Leadership Style & Managerial Effectiveness Public Leadership Coaching Training Program
How to Create Better Leaders and Support Succession Plans

Description:

With a proven track record of nearly 30 years of real-world executive development experience, the Personal Leadership Style & Managerial Effectiveness Public Training Program was created to fill the gap between ineffective standalone leadership workshops and costly executive coaching contracts. The purpose of the program is to significantly increase the leadership abilities of directors, team leaders, and managers to build personal mastery, effective leadership styles, and lead high-performance teams.

The 6-month Public Leadership Training Program is an intense, engaging, and highly participative process that includes an initial 360 feedback, a three-day action learning seminar, targeted coaching, and a follow-up 360 to review progress. The insights, coupled with practical tools, 360 feedback, and peer coaching result in powerful action strategies that transfer directly back to the work environment.

The public training workshop is uniquely effective because of its follow-up processes. Unlike other public training programs lasting only a few days and quickly forgotten, the Program mentors and encourages participants using tools and practices that easily integrate into any existing HR development system. Organizations such as Roche, Specialized, Bristol-Meyers-Squibb, the US Navy, Sun, Exxon, and Wal-Mart chose this program above all others to give their managers the edge in management and leadership skills.

6-Step Methodology

1.  Initial 360° Leadership Effectiveness Survey and Report
The 360° feedback report is compiled through the use of an online survey, completed by eight-to-ten co-workers (direct reports, three-to-four peers, and one’s direct supervisor), and covers the following eight areas:

  • Goals/Standards
  • Communications/Influence
  • Structure/Process
  • Decisions/Buy-in
  • Management/Motivation
  • Responsibility
  • Leadership/Climate Setting
  • Business and Change Acumen

2.  Pre-workshop Data Analysis
LSA analyzes the 360° feedback report and identifies common threads associated with strengths and areas for improvement. These are then reviewed in the seminar and become the basis for the Leadership Action Plan.

3.  Three-day Public Workshop
While at the public seminar, participants learn-by-doing in teams of six to seven peers led by a facilitator-coach. Each person has an opportunity to lead the team and to identify “learnings” that apply back at work. These insights, coupled with practical tools, 360 feedback, and peer coaching result in powerful action strategies that transfer directly back to the work environment.

Each day begins with emotional intelligence practice, followed by short presentations, small group discussions around case studies of real time situations at work, peer coaching, feedback and advice from our world class facilitator-coaches. Our “deep learning” methodology combines intellectual understanding with personal insight, and “practice, practice, practice” to build one’s leadership repertoire.

4.  Coaching
We believe that learning is a process. Participants are scheduled into team teleconferences two weeks and two months after the seminar to discuss insights and implementation of their action plans. For additional support, they are invited to call in on an individual basis for a period of six-months following the seminar event.

5.  Resurvey and Coaching
Eight to ten months after the seminar, participants are invited to resurvey their initial survey respondents to get feedback on their perceived efforts to improve their leadership impact. The Follow-Up report that results is then reviewed with the same coach who led the team at the seminar in order to reinforce improvements and further development.

6.  Action Plan
A rigorous and actionable plan is developed and reviewed at the end of the seminar and becomes the basis for the follow-up coaching. Each participant walks away with goals and a detailed Action Plan that:

  • Has been tested with organizational peers and the executive facilitator
  • Helps to develop personal mastery and leadership style
  • Has a high probability of success
  • Gets them and their team to the next level

Target Audience:
Middle and upper level-managers who have a minimum of 3-5 years experience supervising people and who have had basic communications and performance management training. Typical titles are Managers, Senior Managers, Directors, Senior Directors and Vice Presidents.

Course Cost:
$4,675 per person

As a high growth digital marketing agency with cutting edge talent, we hired LSA Global to help clarify our strategy and work with our management team to implement it throughout the New York Office in a way that made sense for our unique culture . That work was so successful that we also hired them to coach one of our key leaders. LSA has been instrumental in helping us transition to a new leadership team and triple the revenue in our New York office. In this age of useless consultants, I highly recommend their practical and business-oriented approach to strategy, culture and talent.

Redwood Trust looked to LSA Global as a consulting partner to help us explore innovative and scholarly approaches to promote employee engagement and sustain the unique culture we’ve built over the last decade.

LSA helped us perpetuate coaching as a discipline across the organization by integrating our core values, goal setting and performance measurement metrics under an interactive coaching program.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. When we met with LSA we were surprised to discover their depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching and performance management and measurement.

Specifically, we were pleasantly surprised to find a company that could seamlessly integrate those three components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, create a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engaged people at all levels.

As they began to implement, I was thoroughly impressed with how they listened and made adaptations focused on our needs and business objectives. Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a partner in LSA.

We signed up with LSA early on–as their 22nd Member! Since then, our organization’s learning needs have increased and decreased and increased again with the changing times. The beauty of the LSA business model is its flexibility…when we needed to supplement our own internal resources, we used LSA services knowing that we could depend on the outstanding quality of the leadership development and management training programs they provide.
