The Leadership Transition: From Doer to Leader  
Now, more than ever, organizations look to their leaders for remaining effective in today’s environment. Whether you have direct reports or not, other people look to you to clarify, organize, and build a framework for the meaning of their work. The extent to which others see you in this way makes you a leader. As a leader, your organization expects that you will help to bring out the best in others while achieving high levels of business results. However, if you were promoted into leadership because of your technical skills or abilities, or if others look to you because you are an expert, you may not be meeting these expectations. This leadership training workshop is specifically designed to help you identify those things you must let go of, as well as those things you must learn to develop, that will help you achieve leadership expectations.

It is a new and collaborative approach to the complexity of leadership training.

CultureBrand™ Leadership Training 
An organization is more than the sum of its parts. It is more than approved process, incentive and reward systems, and even rules and regulations. An organization is its culture and culture is how an organization interprets, uses, and relates to these building blocks.  Culture is values, beliefs, expectations, rituals, commitment, and attitudes of all who live and work in the organization. Culture is the passion, excitement and engagement that fire the innovation, change and high quality results. In this culture leadership training course you will learn how to identify the encompassing culture of your organization or team, maximize your assets and overcome your barriers. You will also recognize how the culture of your organization affects your ability to lead, respond to change, and attract and develop strategic leaders.
Your Evolution as a Financial Leader 
It is not just the application of new accounting standards that has impacted senior financial roles in organizations, it is integrating the role of finance into the lifeblood of the organization for survival. And that lifeblood should provide an effective response to the erosion in stakeholder confidence in financial management. The answer to this threat is an evolution towards a more effective financial system and process that not only ensures survival but also provides the foundation for new growth and capability. This financial leadership training course will give you the skills to speed up the evolution in your organization.

In this course you will develop the knowledge and skills required for both leaders and team members to build and maintain high performance teams. These are teams where results are supported by collaborative team decision-making and communication as well as individual accountability and alignment.
