COMPREHENSIVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING
Building effective people and organizations.
WHAT WE DO
We know the kind of investment that it takes for a company to provide training and development for its employees, and that it is highly motivating to work for a company that invests in its people. But too often, training becomes another box to check off of a list. In fact, training can be demotivating when a trainer talks about what good leadership looks like, inadvertently pointing out the short comings of the company’s top executives. At Piedmont HR, we know that every company is different, with their own culture, goals and circumstances. It is our goal to meet you where you are and provide training so that every level of your company can work together to be the very best.
Effective training begins with self awareness. Whether your company needs improvement with time management, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence or overall leadership development, Piedmont HR assesses where your company and employees are now to ensure training is designed and delivered for the maximum benefit.
To give an example, we once observed supervisory training to mid-level managers. The supervisors were engaged and excited to address the challenges they had identified. As the training introduced qualities that define a good leader, the mood began to shift. That’s because some of the top leaders in the company were not demonstrating these qualities. Suddenly, the enthusiasm for leading their teams effectively shifted to feeling the burden of accountability erroneously placed on their shoulders, and a helpless mentality creeped in undermining the trainings effectiveness.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t have effective training until your executive leadership is performing exceptionally. On the contrary, when the top leaders are also invested in the training and let it be known that they, too, are dedicated to self improvement, the process becomes a company-wide effort that strengthens buy-in at every level.
Piedmont HR has helped companies in every industry improve leadership, quality and their bottom line.
Personality conflicts are a common part of group dynamics that can interfere with productivity.
These are often preventable just by revealing a better understanding of what makes their colleagues tick.
They start by getting the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats”.
