In today’s world, leaders in most organizations are busy responding to crisis, change, pace and the complexity of work. They rarely take time to discuss as a team, leadership issues that tremendously impact the effectiveness of their work.
MGC&C offers a variety of customizable half day workshops addressing the most common issues we find in organizations. When we begin working with a team, we often find folks who feel frustrated, defensive, or worn out, because of misunderstandings or miscommunication. Over time we help leaders gain a better understanding of themselves and others, and an increased appreciation of the diversity of personalities, perspectives, and behaviors. We facilitate conversations around culture, change management, sharing meaningful feedback, behaviors of high impact teams, and qualities of inspirational leadership.
Typically, we work with organizations over a four-to-six-month period providing a powerful combination of workshops and individual leadership coaching for senior leaders or the entire management team. We are onsite for four to six days, spread across the engagement, facilitating half day workshops. The most popular workshops are listed below. There is also the option of developing workshops on a topic or concern specific to the team. Coaching begins before the first workshop, when timing permits, and continues with a session after each workshop. Each leader is assigned to either Marian or Gene for leadership coaching. Research shows that training coupled with individual coaching increases the likelihood of growth, learning and the adoption of new behaviors. We see engagement increase as the team works together in new ways.
Research has shown that training coupled with coaching has a much greater likelihood of creating behavior change. 1:1 coaching will allow each participant the opportunity to personally dive deeper into workshop topics, receiving individualized support, as they work to implement new skills and knowledge. To enhance the effectiveness of training, each participant receives coaching sessions with Marian or Gene Guinn, post graduate certified Executive Coaches. Coaching will take place on Zoom.
Coaching is a structure that facilitates the process of personal and professional development. The coaching relationship will be designed together around the skills and issues that matter most to the participant. Coaching is not therapy or counseling. Everything discussed within a coaching session is held completely confidential by the coach. We recommend including at least as many coaching sessions as workshops per participant.
We are pleased to schedule a conversation to design a leadership development plan best suited to the needs of your organization. Total investment for this deep work varies based on the size of the team and the number of workshops included.
