“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other“
– John F. Kennedy –
71% said their leaders are not ready to lead their organisations into the future. Only 25% of organisations said they had a ready and willing successor identified for one out of 10 critical leader positions.” – Brandon Hall “State of Leadership Development 2015 Study
BPD’s training and development programmes are tailored to create the leaders you need for the future by incorporating 21st Century Skills into all our programmes. We will develop your identified successors, your new leaders, and your leaders who have potential but are struggling.
BPD will build and deliver the “right” programme based on the specific needs highlighted by the organisation’s leaders, HR and the participants that will address your identified business challenges.
We believe that when participants are involved in designing their development programme, the level of engagement and success is higher.
Each participant who joins the programme will identify with their line manager a specific business objective they need to achieve.
Thereafter, all tools, techniques, knowledge etc. learnt in the development programme will be used to deliver the tangible business results identified.
This training and coaching programme is designed for persons who have been promoted due to excelling in the technical side of their field, but who have had no formal training and development in leading a team or limited experience in a leadership role.
You would not give a car filled with passengers to someone who could not drive or even knows the way, and expect them to both figure it out immediately, and arrive safely. So stop putting your first time leaders with limited experience to lead a team without a comprehensive training and development and coaching plan in place. Both are likely to crash and there will be casualties if nothing structured is in place.
BPD’s Coaching Programmes are designed to positively impact the coachee and the organisation’s performance by accelerating the performance and impact of high performing leaders, and also improving the performance of leaders who you feel have the potential but are struggling in their current role.
We believe that competencies developed should be demonstrated behaviorally and through improved business results and team performance. Thus, achieving specific tangible business objective(s) is included in our programmes.
BPD uses a range of self and/or 360 assessments to identify areas of strength and areas of focus: e.g. Strengths Finder, Emotional Intelligence and The Leadership Circle.
Business & People Development Associates Limited’s (BPD) training/ development workshop delivery framework is based on the Change Management framework, “ADKAR”. The ADKAR model was first published by Prosci in 1998, after research with more than 300 companies undergoing major change projects.
In 2006, Prosci released the first complete text on the ADKAR model in Jeff Hiatt’s book, “ADKAR: a model for change in business, government and our community”.
● Awareness: an overview of the topic
● Desire: to participate and support the change
● Knowledge: of how to change (and what the change looks like)
● Ability: to implement the change on a day-to-day basis
● Reinforcement: to keep the change in place – out of scope for this programme
We include a blend of change management, coaching, training, experiential learning and facilitation in our programme design and delivery. Our workshops are interactive and are created to deliver improvements in both business and personal performance.
We believe that one-off workshops are not the most effective way to effect change. Therefore, our programmes can include an Action Challenge series, which consists of emails sent over an agreed duration, providing mentoring /guidance to the participants to support them in implementing the improvements identified. This approach allows the participants to have continued support after the workshop, rather being left alone to flounder.
Equip your managers and leaders with the 21st Century Skills needed to effectively perform now and in the future.
