Learning and Development Programs

Why not include a learning and development program in your next corporate event or executive retreat? There are many learning and development programs that may fit the needs of your executive team and/or company. Here are some of our most popular offerings listed below and facilitated by our own in house corporate trainers.
Creating the Future
Creating The Future© is a 2-4 day program that takes your executive team or corporate group to the next level of productivity and profitability. This learning and development program has training at the macro and micro level seeking to create change within all facets of the company. Here are some training pieces:
1. Understanding the leadership brain - creating a thinking reference point for leaders to address the critical needs of the company.
2. Creating a “Case for Change” - why can’t we keep on doing business as usual?
3. Developing an experiential experience so that your team may work together optimally.
4. Harnesses the knowledge of what the company would look like that would put us out of business, or make us irrelevant?
These overall objectives have one common underpinning that ties our Creating the Future program together. This foundation is knowing and understanding your company's culture. This strategic learning and development program is all about harnessing the productive power of your company's culture that is either at work for you or possibly against you. According to corporate trainer Jim Patterson:
"The culture within your organization is either your greatest asset or your greatest liability. It is the 24 hours a day training program that is either working for you or quietly sabotaging your best efforts." (Patterson, 2015)
You might be wondering what this company culture thing is all about, why so much importance on how employees interact with their company's mission and each other. Here is the case in point:
"We define “company culture” as the formally or informally agreed upon beliefs and behaviors that are rewarded or penalized within an organization. The culture is “the way it is around here” or “the way we do things around here.” (Patterson, 2015)
Now this may be sounding familiar to you leaders out there. You may have tried to implement some change in the past and maybe the results were not what you expected? Patterson goes further and describes a common challenge with corporate leaders:
"While the function of a leader is to bring about change, the prevailing culture strives to prevent it. Therein lies the dilemma. The leader’s challenge is to understand this dichotomy and to help shape and shift the culture from its familiar settings into one that embraces your ‘unfamiliar’ business conditions (aka change) in the future." (Patterson, 2015)
The process of discovering your company's true culture and working to redefine or possibly change some aspects is the most important step. Our Creating the Future program will help you do just that. As Patterson states:
"Your organization will have a culture. It will either happen by accident or default, or it will be designed intentionally with the same level of urgency and importance that your key business strategies have." (Patterson, 2015)
It may be time to put on the lab coat and give your company's culture a review. Contact us for more details.
