According to a yearlong study conducted by McKinsey Co., the most important corporate resource over the next 20 years will be talent. It’s also the resource in shortest supply. Not only will companies have to devise more imaginative hiring practices; they will also have to work harder to keep their best people.
Our Clear Direction talent development program is run for 3-6 months and pinpoints an individual’s strengths and blind spots and prescribe easy-to-use techniques and strategies to assist in developing critical emotional intelligence competencies.
Benefits of the program
- Enhances self-awareness by addressing the source of the behaviour (thinking) rather than the symptoms (personality), and provides personalised development content rather than a “one size fits all” approach—If we want to change behaviour, we must first change our thinking
- Provides practical management tips that can be applied in the work environment rather than in a classroom setting—knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do
- Increases management effectiveness by stimulating and directing communications about relevant business matters between the manager and their direct reports—The relationship with a person’s boss is the #1 reason employees leave
- Outlines the key behaviours that are critical to a manager’s success
- Provides ongoing reinforcement over the course of 6 months—Learning is best if it is a lifestyle, not an event !
