“I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with LSA on the design and delivery of the experiential Career Development Training for Managers training for our employees. You truly exceeded everyone’s expectations.”
Steven Gray | US Enterprise Services | Microsoft

Overview:

In order to build internal bench strength and have skilled employees who can be moved into the right roles at the right time, employees must take ownership for their own career development.

Career Development Training for Managers is built to facilitate workforce readiness, develop employees who are engaged in the business, and improve employee tenure. The career development programs are designed to provide employees, their managers, and internal career coaches with a clear roadmap of how to develop a career.  They also provide proven tools, assessments, and the skills required to make it happen.

The payoff for developing careers within the organization is immense: longer tenure, lower cost of recruiting, higher levels of contribution as employee potential is realized, and improved employment branding as an employer of choice. The payoff to employees is priceless: less job stress, higher motivation, and the pride and satisfaction one experiences when making full use of one’s strengths and natural talents.

Description:

Career Development Training for Managers is a one-day workshop specifically for managers.  It is designed to give managers a clear picture of their roles and responsibilities in developing the careers of their direct reports. This proven career development workshop introduces a four-step career development best practices process for the manager to follow, builds the critical skills for career development discussions, and provides a career development toolkit to support employee assessments and career path planning.

Program Objectives:

In this career development workshop, managers learn how to:

  • Understand the business case for career development efforts
  • Clarify the various roles in Career Development: (managers, employees, and the organization)
  • Identify and overcome manager barriers to career development
  • Implement a step-by-step process to guide manager career development practices
  • Help employees assess the right job fit based on their skills, natural talents, passions, and the work that the organization needs accomplished
  • Become more effective at career development interaction skills and discussions
  • Create an action plan for supporting career development on your team

Target Audience:

Any manager who wants to better develop the careers of their direct reports.

Career Development Training for Managers is often combined with our Career Development for Employees workshop and toolkit to help employees take effective ownership of their future career development.

The career development offerings share a core set of career development concepts and tools making it possible to deploy all three components together for maximum impact, combine two, or implement just one component as a stand-alone intervention.

The Career Development for Managers workshop include the following career development tools:

  • Career Development Preparation Tools: Manager’s Preparation Worksheet, Career Development Meeting Planner, and ‘Nine Box’ Readiness Evaluation Tools

  • Career Development Self-Assessment Tools: Employee Values Self- Assessment, Career Assets Summary Tool,  ‘Box Five’ Activity Worksheet and Cards, Informational Interview Planner, and Scanning Planner

  • Career Development Planning Tools: Career Development Goal Setting – Gap Analysis Worksheet – Map to Future Tool – Individual Development Planner

LSA Global brought a fresh perspective to our behavioral based interviewing strategy for key executive positions that we needed to fill.  Their consultant helped us to develop questions that produced a much deeper understanding of candidates’ capabilities. Throughout the process LSA was also very responsive in dealing with short lead time requests.  Thank you!

LSA helped change our entire culture around meetings, making them more effective and efficient, thus enabling us to concentrate on driving more business.

Understanding and conforming to legal compliance was very important to our company. We turned to LSA Global to provide a quality and cost effective way to ensure that we were AB 1825 compliant. Their interactive eLearning program was top-notch. It allowed our managers to learn at their own pace, and on their own time. The program was tailored to include our logo and our internal harassment policies. It was interactive and met all federal and state legal requirements. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company looking for an efficient and effective and top quality way to train their managers to be in compliance.

Each program is preceded by an assessment of the participants. The course is then designed to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group. The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields. On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course. Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually. Given the nature of Cisco’s business and the way we operate, these remote workshops are a must for anyone who joins our company. Their work is eye opening. Great content and fantastic delivery.

On behalf of Roche and my staff I would like to sincerely thank you for your help with this. The English as a Second Language (ESL) assessment and coaching that you provided for our team was a great success and has made an enormous difference.

I have worked with other training companies and found it to be more of a seller/buyer relationship than one of matching the right expertise to our business issues. That’s what LSA does – ask the hard questions, listen, and understand our business needs. We receive the benefit of their expertise from assistance with personal development plans to enhancing team performance, to looking at enterprise-wide challenges. It’s all about helping our business succeed as we grow. Right now, LSA is providing great ideas, a fresh approach, and valuable guidance as we develop our management team and accelerate our client relationship management results.

Kristin Westland-Kaune
Director, Team Development

We have been able to utilize LSA’s extensive network of top-notch resources to leverage our investment in employee development. The result has been the cost effective and highly efficient delivery of quality educational and management training programs.

I’ve been associated with LSA for the last 8 years and have found them to be an extremely professional, well managed full service training organization. Since working with LSA, I’ve participated in a number of solutions ranging from Performance Management to Assertiveness Training – I’ve found that the quality of the resources is superior. They are well prepared and have definitely done a considerable amount of pre-work in order to customize our culture and business into the total learning experience – making it most beneficial for our employees.
