Organizational Development & Learning Solutions

Leadership and Management Development

We have proven learning solutions based on best practice approaches and tools to help develop all levels of leaders and managers.*

  • Leadership Excellence Institute: Effective leadership goes beyond the scope of managing and supervising employees. Today’s managers influence, support, and motivate teams; identify and mentor talent; and keep in step with innovation and change. Recognizing that effective management doesn’t automatically accompany a change in job title, we’ve developed unique programs that address the changing role of today’s leaders and prepare them to rise to the challenges presented by today’s workplace. The Leadership Excellence Institute offers three learning tiers designed to build upon the skills and ranges of experience at different career points. Please see the pdf on the right. 
  • New Manager Skill Building: We can help your new managers form crucial foundational skills to shift from being an individual contributor to a well-respected manager who can achieve team success and drive bottom-line performance.   We can offer training on a number of topics critical to developing effective management skills such as: Understanding your role as a manager; Communicating effectively as a manager; Coaching skills; Conducting a performance review; Motivating others; Effective delegation and Your leadership style.
  • The Coaching CenterThrough highly qualified and experienced professional coaches, we provide an entrepreneurial approach to meeting our clients’ coaching needs. We provide a wide range of delivery options from 1X1 coaching, group sessions, in-person or virtual facilitation.

*Please Note: The ODLS team can custom build Leadership Summits to align with your specific leadership development goals. Our Leadership Summits enable your team to apply learning and tools to your organization’s real business challenges. These summits can be designed for any timeframe and will typically be built on a blended learning format (i.e. integrate in e-Learning assignments; webinars and utilize a focused learning portal.)
