Training and Development


Paolo Veronese (1528–1588): Apotheose of Venezia

Learn What Is NOT Taught in the Universities.

Leaders must be home grown since leadership cannot be learned from courses offered in universities.

Consequently, without leadership development training, many organizations will never make teams work or lead the charge for change.

Focus on Application

The standard module promoted by the universities don’t allow for practical learning. For example, professors must issue grades, so they can only evaluate learning to the first two levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. The two most common methods of evaluation are tests and papers.

We use tests (called reviews) as a tool to reinforcement memory, not to make sure that some get As, Bs, Cs and so on. And papers allow for talking about theory of the real world, it doesn’t allow for taking doing much in the real world. Unfortunately, there is little focus on either application and skill building.

Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze,
Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze. All great leaders know something very important, it not only what’s in the books that are important, it’s what you bring into the real world.

There is a number of different ways for you can go about building application skills. The model we use stresses that three are three major phases to the process. The that process needs to cycle back to include feedback and motivation before one is able to get to mastery.

While it appears that model is simple, it also has a number of nuances in application. And it is these nuances that make all the difference.

Your Advantage in Development

Besides the training techniques part of the program, we also use other development techniques. These include:.

1. Design of  Consequences

For those completing a given training cycle, we recommend a short celebration at the end. Students like to know that management cares. But that is not the only thing that is important. Clearly, one needs to understand motivational consequences.

2. Use of Coaching

If you are looking to develop skills, one should consider adding coaching to the training component. 

3.  Training Grounding into Organizational Development

Finally, depending on your goals, you might view training as a program for competitive advantage or organizational development.

Our approach stresses the application of practical, relevant knowledge into real live situations.

Available Training Programs

Word Magic (6 modules). The focus is on those moments of truth between two individuals, when you use your verbal and nonverbal communication skills to influence. 

Leadership and Supervisory Skills (21 modules). Being a great supervisor is surprisingly difficult. There are a number of interpersonal and management skills you must learn.

Operational Problem Solving (6 modules). Managers need to be problem solvers so executives can be decision makers. There’s a great deal of truth to this saying, “If your only tool is hammer, every problem looks like a nail.”  This training gives you both a process to follow and a set of necessary mental tools. 

Running Masterful Meetings (4 modules). Meetings are events where minutes are kept and hours are lost. Despite their importance, most managers do NOT know how to run good meetings. Consequently, lots of time and money is lost— everyday.

Turning Groups Into High Performing Teams (16 modules). Sounds easy, call them a team and they will act like one. However, it just doesn’t work the way. It requires a great understanding of a number of complex skills.

Performance Management & Motivation (4 modules). The secrets to performance are to understand your ABCs: antecedents, behavior and consequences. These Legacee training programs are based on the the theory of operant conditioning, one of the most powerful motivational paradigms in psychology.

Leadership Communication Skills (6 modules). Certain communication skills work at the group level. So rather than influencing an individual, you work on the group as a whole.
