8 Hours, 10-15 Participants

Session 1 – Building Leaders of Character
Ethical constructs and dilemmas; practical exercises that offer solutions to common, business-oriented, “sticky” situations.

Session 2 – Understanding Emotional Intelligence
This small group discussion introduces participants to emotional intelligence as defined by Daniel Goleman. This session highlights the critical relationship between emotional intelligence and leadership excellence.

Session 3 – Leader as Self
The responsibility we bear to consider who we are as leaders is a big one. Before we begin to work productively with others, this leadership identity must be determined.

One on One Coaching

Figure out your next steps with personal, 1-on-1 coaching sessions.

Catalyzer employs a question-based leadership coaching framework, modeled after the seven-question outline offered in the book, The Coaching Habit. We believe that the most effective coaching conversations are guided discussions where the coachee is allowed to figure out what they should be doing for themselves.

Assessments

Tailored assessments provide insight for personal and team growth.

We believe many organizations are at the point of “assessment fatigue.” At Catalyzer, assessments are an integral element for other programs and coaching and only used where the insights they provide have specific application.

WHY LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT  TRAINING?

There is a war for talent raging all over the country and turnover is not only disruptive, it is exceedingly expensive. Smart companies with well-developed, effective leadership are much better postured to mitigate these challenges. It is way more cost-effective to keep your current employees engaged than it is to find, hire, and train new ones.

DISCOVERY-BLUEPRINT PROCESS

This process is among the very few non-negotiables we have. It is critical to establish a foundational understanding of your organization. With that understanding, we develop world-class programs that are specific to your organization and context.

DISCOVERY

Understanding You

In the Discovery phase, we work to understand you or your organization by asking questions directly or through survey instruments and then analyze the response. Discovery outcomes provide better organizational insight into conflicts in alignment, organizational structure and culture.

BLUEPRINT

Creating a Plan

Represents Catalyzer’s Discovery analysis and recommendations to include an acknowledgment as to whether we believe we can assist in achieving the organization’s intended program outcomes and our proposal for growth. 

OUR MISSION

OUR CLIENTS’ REVIEWS

I liken a lot of the things we’ve done in the past to a can of soup. What you get is what you get. With Catalyzer, you have options, you can add whatever ‘ingredients’ you like to make it your own. Needless to say, we jumped at the chance to work with them.

ANONYMOUS CLIENT

Multi-Region Training Lead, McDonald’s Corporation

Catalyzer staff deploys a breadth of experience from life, formal education, classroom instruction and their relationships with each other, combined with a modicum of performance art, to create a novel learning experience. Many of our factory workers have some disdain for the formal classroom, but find themselves participating with enjoyment. The learning environment is highly interactive and participatory with sensitivity to those who may be uncomfortable initially.
