What’s the best way to get to Bermuda? The answer is: it depends on where you’re starting from.
Taking stock of your team’s strengths, goals, and challenges at the beginning gives us the data needed to track improvements over time.
How do you know if your team is making any progress? With many leadership development programs, well… you don’t.
Upside Partners makes sure you can point to measurable improvements from start to finish.
At the outset of the program, time is taken to learn from the participants what their biggest goals and challenges are. This gives us a benchmark against which to weigh your team’s progress and achievements. Also provided, is a strengths assessment from Marcus Buckingham, which identifies the unique strengths and gifts each person brings to his/her work.
When everything is all ready to go, the program itself is delivered in small groups. The format is very interactive and participative, with plenty of room for questions and feedback.
Traditional programs take up to 4 days of your team’s time.
In an out-of-town conference.
And then when they’re back on the job and in the weeds, it’s hard to remember or apply what they spent all that time learning.
Our sessions last for 2 hours, once per week, for four weeks. They’re held in your office, either live in person or over Zoom video chat. This creates minimal disruption, where your team members can actually apply what they learn to their work immediately.
As iron sharpens iron, your team members share their experiences and learn from each other, through:
- lessons with their coach
- masterminding challenges together
- homework assignments
- and discussion the following week
Because the same coach leads each session, he or she gets to know your team throughout the program. This also helps increase its effectiveness.
