Online Leadership Courses
Leaders need to refresh their thinking and methods for doing things from time-to time with the help of an outside view. As Dr. W. Edwards Deming said: "Understanding comes from outside… Knowledge from outside gives us a view of what we're doing, what we might do, a road to improvement, continual improvement… Far better, more trustworthy, is an outside view… It is only by that outside view that we get ahead."
Problems You Worry About
Leaders have many concerns, chief among them are leadership development and succession, strategy and execution, and driving change. These are perpetual concerns because of changing circumstances, uncertainty about the problem that needs to be solved, and the facts that are needed to settle on workable solutions.To meet these challenges in the digital era, make people as much of the core of your outlook, capabilities, and leadership as technology. Invest in talent to outperform others.
Online Course Concept
These short online courses seek to convey factual, practical information for the purpose of being better informed, to make better decisions, and to reduce the number and severity of unique and recurring problems. Business without all the busyness. The goal of your participation is to obtain a few high-impact key takeaways that can be implemented immediately to improve the general health and fitness of the organization. A secondary goal is bilateral learning between course instructor and participants. Learning from each other helps us both improve what we do, in furtherance of a productive relationship.
Delight in the Uniqueness
It makes no sense to offer more of what has long been available in the training marketplace. It has to be better. Consequently, these online courses carve out new and unique content spaces based on decades of original research and management experience in industry. In addition to unique subject matter, it includes an impressive depth of analysis and insight that easily and always connects to the “real world.”
There are three options for the online courses:
1. Prerecorded video (forthcoming)
2. Prerecorded video plus live follow-up discussion, key takeaways, and guidance on what to do next via Zoom or MSTeams (forthcoming)
3. Live interactive online delivery, break-out sessions, follow-up discussion, key takeaways, and guidance on what to do next
Four Online Training Courses
For options 1 and 2, the recommended process is: watch the video, take notes, distill notes to 3 to 5 specific and practical implementation items, implement the items concurrently or in a logical sequence, check the results, and make adjustments. Take one course to satisfy a specific need or take all four courses as a comprehensive program of skills development for the various leadership levels in your organization.
