Leadership requires a broad range of skills; formulating the vision & strategy, creating the plan, guiding people through change, delivering results. And the subset of skills goes on and on…. Leaders today need to be innovative, motivating, decisive, persuasive, collaborative…… Developing these fine skills is not an easy task, not for the first-time team leader, nor for the seasoned executive. The challenges at each level of leadership changes, thus the learning and development needs change as well.

Here at Connect Learning and Development, we will work closely with you to understand and identify the specific skills that your leaders need to master. We’ll ask about your business strategy, your organizational culture, the strengths and the developmental areas of your people. Then build the program that will best address and develop those skills, for the leaders in your organization.

Leadership Skills… Beyond theories and models..

At Connect Learning & Development we believe in the value of theories and models in the development of behavioral skills.  It provides a framework to understand. However, understanding does not necessarily mean doing. In all our programs, we will provide structure and theory around the skills and behaviors that need to be developed. However, we will allocate more time and energy to the practical activities that will get participants to start applying these skills to their everyday lives; through discussions, exercises, role-plays and reflection.

Below you may find a set of Behavioral Skills that our Leadership Programs could incorporate:

  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Communication
  • Feedback

Regardless of the specific leadership skills you choose to focus on in your leadership program, at Connect Learning and Development, we believe that the core of leadership lies in making the right connections… connecting with yourself and using that self-awareness to connect effectively with others.
