Experienced managers set the pace— give them a road map for success

Your experienced leaders manage day-to-day goal execution and empower and engage your frontline employees. Effective leadership training at this level focuses on the ability to manage up as well as down and the ability to have difficult conversations. Blanchard understands the importance of preparing these managers for success in managing teams, while managing executive leadership expectations. Experienced leaders must learn how to:

  • Guide and empower direct reports on career development
  • Provide line of sight to annual strategic organisational goals and priorities
  • Create an inclusive environment that motivates, develops, and retains a diverse talent base
  • Lead decisively and set clear expectations, making tough but necessary decisions when required
  • Drive a focus on results, setting the pace and standards
  • Foster a team culture of innovation and idea generation
  • Create a collaborative culture for team members and partners
  • Inspire others through visible leadership and presence
  • Embrace change, anticipating and adapting in response to business needs

Prepare your next generation of executive leaders

In leading critical business functions, your senior leaders are the bridge between the executive team’s vision and the managers of the company’s day-to-day execution. Senior leaders are charged with translating broad goals into departmental and operating unit tasks.

Connect to the company’s vision

Sharing their leadership point of view and personal stories, these leaders show employees the connection between their work and the company’s long-term vision.

Motivate teams

Great senior leaders inspire and engage their teams through effective communication, creating a culture of high performance and accountability, and fostering an inclusive work environment.

Create a customer-centric organisation

As advocates for exceptional internal and external customer service, senior leaders set the example for accountability, innovation and soliciting feedback to anticipate customer needs.

Senior leaders operationalise the organisation’s vision and values

Senior leaders transform the company’s vision into departmental and division goals, fostering cross-organisational collaboration, leading change initiatives, and inspiring innovation. These leaders are the key to creating an inclusive, high-performance workplace culture that reflects the company’s values. Blanchard believes senior leaders benefit from evidence-based leadership training frameworks and opportunities to discuss challenges and share best practices with their senior management peers. In their roles, senior leaders must be able to:

  • Identify and implement appropriate work structures and processes to accomplish goals
  • Bring cross-disciplinary knowledge to bear on issues and opportunities
  • Manage and develop effective working relationships with people from other functions to achieve common objectives
  • Create a nimble environment based on a culture of adjustments and realignment
  • Advance diversity and inclusion, engaging diverse teams to solve business challenges
  • Investigate and adopt best practices from within and outside the organisation

Inspired executives unlock untapped potential

Blanchard believes the most effective executives take a servant leadership approach, prioritise the well-being of their employees, and create a culture of empowerment and collaboration. They lead by example, serve as mentors, and work to develop their people’s untapped potential. Building upon achieved success and focused on refinement, these leaders identify unique ways they can contribute to the organisation’s growth. Executives benefit from an intentional executive development journey focused on honing the skills needed to:

  • Inspire a culture of self-leadership
  • Develop and mobilise a long-term talent pipeline
  • Drive innovation and transformation to position the company for success
  • Ensure initiatives and priorities are integrated with one another and aligned with strategic business priorities
  • Promote alignment of key stakeholders across functions
