The ACCI open leadership development program is run in a central location in Singapore, where we create a unique confidential environment for leadership development. Your managers work with a small group of peers from a variety of commercial, consultancy, industrial and government leaders from around the Asia Pacific region and as far afield as Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Based on our Leadership Behaviours™ model, this management training will help them make adjustments to what they spend their time doing AND learn coaching skills to support new behaviours; in themselves and their teams. If you have a massively matrix organisation, this is the programme for your senior managers.
When managers step up in their leadership development from being functional leaders to Leaders of People they open wider options for promotion across the organisation. They can operate in any functional area; adding tremendous value to themselves, their staff and your organisation as they move through the leadership pipeline. As a high potential individual, career progression accelerates when you embrace performance coaching. Faster development of your team equals faster delivery of results; equals faster promotion for you.
is Performance Conversations, consisting of four days in the classroom environment, followed by a series of carefully designed Skills Embedding Process (SEP) sessions conducted by phone. The program allows managers to examine their leadership behaviour and how they spend their time. Then we equip them with the core coaching skills and take them through practice of the first key applications, Getting away from being the “manager as expert” who spends time being the problem solver, and move to using their experience to develop their people’s abilities by coaching them to solve their own problems. Next we teach them simple and effective coaching conversations structures to make performance management a “One-Time” conversation. The course has a full follow-up Skills Embedding Process (SEP) to ensure transfer of learning and enhancement of skill.
