Experience world-class training for leaders.

Leadership training refers to learning experiences, programs, or courses designed to improve employees’ leadership skills like decision-making, problem-solving, innovation, creative thinking, driving results, delegation, planning, execution, motivation, and communication.

Good leaders attract the best talent because they bring out the best in people. They inspire, create and innovate to make things happen.

Our leadership training courses target specific problems faced by leaders in the real world.

Leadership Development

The best leadership development programs build competencies, provide tools, and engage learners to practice new behaviors.

The best leaders are enablers and multipliers. These leadership training programs help participants understand how to lead by example and inspire people to a shared vision. They will learn how to influence through intentional communication, storytelling, and compelling presentations. They will learn skills to motivate, coach, mentor, and build leaders.

Team Leadership

Building better teams is one of the most important things you can do for your company. We know that when people work together, they’re more engaged and productive—which drives business success.

That’s why we offer a wide range of team-building programs designed to help you build trust, commitment, and accountability in your employees.

Our fun, interactive programs will help you create high-impact teams who are engaged and productive members of your organization.

Highlight the importance of teamwork during your sales kick-offs, strategic planning, business meetings, conferences, and workshops.

We design team-building programs for executive teams, managers, and supervisors. In addition, we have facilitated programs for groups with more than 500 participants.

Build the spirit of teamwork. Teach your leaders how to bring out the best in teams.

Build Teamwork Skills

Successful team building happens because well-thought activities build trust and teamwork skills. Through effective team building, you can set goals, clarify roles, improve communication, develop quality decision-making, and help people practice participative leadership.

Personal Leadership

Train your MVPs, your most valuable professionals.

The Personal Leadership Courses will equip high-potential employees. Participants in these workshops will use tools to help them discover and develop their strengths. In addition, they will use strategies that will help them become more productive and happy at work.

If you want to turn employees into intrapreneurs, and if you’re going to bring out the best in them, the Personal Leadership Courses will accelerate their professional growth and development.

Design Process

When you decide to work with me, I will recommend that we use simple steps in designing your leadership training programs. We will target specific competencies to save time and optimize our results.

When designing learning experiences, I used proven frameworks. Training for leaders needs to be transformational.

The Influencer Change Framework ensures that all training programs you bring to your company are focused, intensive, relevant, and engaging. You will trim it and take out all the BS in training.

Step 1: Clarify Measurable Results

You can create change if you are clear about what you want, why you want it, and when. The formula X to Y by When helps.

An effective result is specific and measurable. It is quantitative, not qualitative. In the past, success measures for leadership training are primarily descriptive. But we can certainly measure increased revenue, improvement of net promoter score, and others.

Step 2: Find Vital Behaviors

Vital behaviors bring extraordinary results. We will find high-leverage behaviors. Leaders will find out what to do and how to do it. They will identify crucial moments that bring the most significant impact.

And we will stick with what works for your people and your organization.

Step 3: Apply Multiple Sources of Influence

The Influencer Change Framework offers six sources of influence. Then, you will apply what works for you. Each source of influence multiplies the others.

That means you’ll go beyond the carrot and stick form of motivation. Instead, you will support leaders achieve their goals while achieving corporate goals.

When it comes to developing leadership skills, experience is a multiplier. Experience is always available. However, not all experiences are great teachers and not everyone learns well from experiences.

This is why you don’t just leave leadership learning to any kind of experience. You will design the experience.

The so-called 70-20-10 notion of learning, though helpful for emphasizing learning by doing, is misleading. Because the 10% for classroom training is also an experience. And we can turn that 10% into 10x. You can make separate experiences multiply each other.

This is why I use Learning Experience Design (LXD). I bring together the best of what I’ve learned from Instructional System Design and User Experience to make training an extraordinary learning experience and an essential tool for business innovation.

Anyone can become a better leader. We only need to choose leadership training programs that fit the leaders we are helping to grow. When leaders improve, everyone around them improves too. This is one of the secrets of 10xed results.

Engaged employees are willing to go above and beyond. They are less like to leave their jobs, as well as the less likely reasons for others to leave their jobs. Practicing inspiring leadership increases engagement among team members.

These leadership training programs are investments in yourself and your development as a leader. They multiply the value of every centavo you’ll invest.

In designing leadership programs, I used many sources. I do not have to reinvent the wheel.

I use the Leadership Challenge as a framework for the signature course. I believe that the results of the research of Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner will remain relevant for years to come. If used as a framework, I can help organizations personalize leadership training.

The Influencer Model is a syringe. The key is not in teaching the model itself, but in using the model to inject solutions that will increase the ability and motivation of leaders. You can use it too in designing personalized leadership training solutions.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution is useful in executing development programs. The 4DX is a product, and I do not have the license to sell the product. And I do not intend to sell it the way it is packaged precisely because of what I have learned in practice and in research. I use what I learned from the book to help organizations execute their leadership development programs.

I use tools from Design Thinking and User Experience Design. I do not have to be creative from scratch. There are easy-to-use tools that allow me to move from problem space to solution space.

Aside from these sources, I interview practitioners inside the organization. There are times that I needed to interview their customers too. Designing a reliable program requires work.

I consulted dozens of leaders. Many leadership principles will remain, but our practices change.

As a leadership trainer, I do not see myself as the only source of knowledge. I am a curator of knowledge. I design solutions based on available information.

Effective leadership training programs must be simple and effective. Each program must target high-impact goals and a few vital behaviors. We also need to create opportunities for leaders to practice new behaviors.

There is no doubt that leadership skills training is essential to organizational success. The world is changing fast, and those who can stay ahead are the leaders we need.


Make Training Work

All these leadership training programs are transformational courses. The aim of each is to provide a good foundation and to help you develop leadership skills and vital behaviors that bring better results.

To help you design an effective leadership development program, I will:

  • Share an overview of the methods and frameworks that I use,
  • identify the crucial leadership skills for 2022 and beyond,
  • answer the common questions about leadership training, and
  • recommend the next steps for leaders.

I design seminars for leaders. When you have 10 or more employees who need to develop foundational knowledge about leadership or acquire leadership skills, I will help you. Use the contact form to reach me.

Design Successful Training for Leaders

The way people learn is evolving fast. The way we train must be one step ahead.

It is very obvious that the methods used in many training programs do not belong to our age. They are the methods used for instructions during the 20th century. Many of these methods will still work for labor-intensive organizations.

But they are less effective in developing leaders.

Common Questions About Training

Leadership training is a collective term for learning experiences that strengthen leadership skills and abilities. Leadership training is often given to managers, supervisors, team leaders, and high-potential members of organizations. Each leadership training may help learners appreciate leadership principles, apply best practices, improve strategies, use new tools, and practice new behaviors.

Leadership training may be based on a proprietary system, research findings, models, or competencies.

Competencies are a set of skills. Skills enable performance.

Competency-based leadership training provides multi-level and personalized programs or pathways for learners.

You may conduct leadership training via classroom training, workshops, webinars, online courses, coaching, mentoring, and more.
Learning is platform agnostic.

Great organizations offer personalized training programs for leaders.
Instead of providing canned programs, these organizations design leadership training programs around the mindset, competencies, and standards needed to succeed in leadership jobs.

For example, if your company wants to provide first-in-class products and services for the next five years, your company needs to develop leaders who can do that. Your competition also wants to do that. Both of you must prepare your leaders for the future.

The leadership training you provide to team leaders of business units is not the same as the training given to the CEO.

It is tempting to answer in the affirmative. As a leadership trainer, I know why some training providers offer basic leadership training. You only need to do one basic leadership training, then run it a thousand times.

But you must hear the truth.

There is no one-size-fits-all leadership training. 

Canned leadership training programs offered by training providers are not all solutions. Most of them are nice-to-have products but not vital. 

If an organization decides to get canned programs, organizations need to find the products that best fit the leadership development program of leaders at every level.

Leadership training programs change over time. 

Most companies waste time and money by offering excellent leadership training programs during the 20th century. 

The leadership training programs offered 30 years ago no longer apply today. We are in the knowledge economy. Technology change happens in weeks, not in decades.

Some leadership skills like interpersonal skills, creativity, and communication skills will remain relevant. But we need to adjust how we use these skills to new workplace realities.

Many leadership training programs fail because they are canned commodities. Worst, some companies send employees to leadership training without a solid plan to help employees apply their learning. 

They are robbing themselves of the opportunity to convert learning to growth.

If you are a manager of an organization that invests in leadership training, follow this advice: 

  1. Create focused, inspiring, relevant, and engaging learning experiences. 
  2. Target the most critical leadership skills. 
  3. Align training with individual and corporate goals.

Train leaders the right way.

Because of the ever-changing policy on holding public events, I am not yet offering public seminars for leaders. However, if you are looking for effective seminars for leaders, I highly recommend one tailor-fit for your organization.

You can also explore the online courses that we can design for all of your employees.

We learn best by experience. Turn training into learning experiences. And sustain learning by engaging leaders in the practice of new behaviors and application of skills to real-world leadership challenges.
