If you Google “leadership training,” you will be inundated with vendors and options, all claiming to propel your managers to the next level in their careers through their generalized classes, webinars, and reference materials. At TGC, we believe valuable, effective leadership training starts with understanding the needs and aspirations of your organization’s leaders and your specific business requirements. From this perspective, we design customized learning solutions to support the professional development and efficacy of leaders and individual contributors throughout a client’s organization.

We target the competencies required in your unique position at this point in time as they align with your organization’s particular goals. Identifying what makes a strong leader within these parameters is a large part of leadership development: Are you launching a new product? Are you reorganizing team priorities? Are you developing a new marketing strategy? Given these goals, what kind of personal adaptations are necessary, and which strengths that you already have should be foregrounded and exploited? TGC partners with leaders to construct a relevant program focusing on self-awareness and strategies for instilling reliable habits of effective leadership that directly confront your particular challenges.

TGC’s Leadership Forum offers a suite of leadership training topics that can be relevantly designed to meet your organization’s unique definition of effective leadership. Topics include:

  • Behavioral interviewing that leads more directly toward the acquisition of relevant talent
  • Managing critical conversations that need to be executed with compassion and timeliness
  • Implementing performance feedback schedules that measure progress accurately
  • Conflict resolution
  • Structuring workplace environments that foster respect, clarity, and open communication

From building self-awareness to measuring the results of implemented changes, TGC guides leaders toward a consistent fulfillment of goals and expectations needed for success within a dynamic, growing organization.

TG CONSULTANCY COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Conflicts in the workplace are not resolved by simply avoiding confrontation or assuming the issue will dissipate over time without intervention. Even though conflict can disrupt productivity and lead to emotional flash points, it can also be seen as a vital indicator of critical issues. Our course helps individuals and teams to recognize styles of interaction that may enable and inhibit conflict resolution, helping those involved in conflict to switch to open-ended questioning that will lead to mutual understanding and authentic reconciliation. What’s more, our workshop enables participants to view conflict as a potential opportunity for strengthening collaboration and embracing innovative methods of communication that can forestall future conflicts.

Workshop Duration:            5 hours

Even the most stellar employees have room for improvement, and engaged team members want to grow and develop professionally with the guidance of a good manager. Well-planned and skillfully executed performance conversations provide an excellent tool for cultivating and retaining great talent. Unfortunately, however, many performance conversations do not start from a place of thorough preparation and objective feedback—and instead of achieving their intended goals, they actually cause confusion, disengagement, or interpersonal conflict. TGC’s Effective Performance Conversations workshop will prepare participants to formulate questions and input that foster employee buy-in and focus on positively changing behaviors rather than judging people. Leave this course feeling confident in your ability to collaborate with your reports on implementing specific, measurable, achievable goals that translate into increased productivity and morale for your organization.

Maintaining a reciprocally respectful workplace is essential for ensuring maximum productivity, fostering team morale, cultivating individual professional development, and maintaining legal compliance. We know what lack of respect feels like, but it’s harder to set clear workplace parameters and goals to foster respect in all aspects of business. TGC’s Respectful Workplace workshop uses a varied and interactive model to ensure that participants leave with a clear definition of a respectful workplace and its characteristics as well as an understanding of its integral value to all aspects of their organization. Topics include setting rules of engagement and implementing a personal plan of action to create or maintain a respectful workplace—or to correct course when an existing culture is less than optimal.

This course also satisfies the California requirement for regular management training on sexual harassment.

Employee engagement is critical for an organization’s ability to retain talent and avoid costly disruptions in staff turnover, and at the foundation of an engaged workforce is trust. Trust encompasses the reassuring beliefs among employees that an organization will communicate openly, respect differences, understand varying perspectives, foreground safety, and approach goals with transparency and consistent focus. TGC’s day-long workshop helps participants strengthen the elements of trust that will keep a workforce engaged: self-awareness, mutual understanding, accountability measures, and assured, articulated relevance. With our nuanced, practical approach to trust in the workplace, leaders can discover trust-building tools that will dispel feelings of anonymity and dissatisfaction among employees, boosting engagement overall within their organizations.
