LEADERSHIP TRAINING

ALL TRAINING PROGRAMS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL.

Leadership training can be boring...but not the way we do it! Our interactive, high-energy training seminars will engage and inspire your team while giving them the tools they need to immediately drive greater results for your company.

Leaders responsible for results look to Meredith and Main for assistance when they’re facing situations in the workplace that hinder their teams’ chances for success. We’ve seen it all. We’ve managed teams through every scenario. We’ve worked with all types of teams and leaders (both good and bad) across multiple industries, through mergers and acquisitions, and in times of economic crisis. We understand the cultural shift on the horizon with the newest generation of leaders on the rise, and offer training programs that are custom-tailored to your team, culture, and organizational structure.

Choose from our individual classes, check out our 1 & 2 Day Pre-Built Workshops, or create your own custom training workshop. No matter which you choose, our approach is the same.

  • You talk, we listen, then we adapt our programs to your specific needs.

  • We take the time to assess each individual team member and the make-up of your team to make sure everyone is in a position in which they can succeed.

  • We stay engaged after your training sessions are complete because we believe in what we deliver and use your results to measure the effectiveness of our programs.

  • We offer a 90-Day Guarantee: If you don’t see improvement after 90 days, we will re-assess your team and provide retraining at no cost.


INDIVIDUAL LEADERSHIP TRAINING COURSES

SITUATIONAL LEADERSHIP

50% OF THE TIME, LEADERS ARE USING THE WRONG LEADERSHIP STYLE

to meet the needs of their people.

Situational leaders give their people exactly what they need, when they need it. They offer guidance, caring, and autonomy, and provide just the right amount of direction and support to help their team members succeed. They know how to develop competent, self-reliant contributors who deliver faster results for your organization. Using the skills learned in Situational Leadership® II, your leaders will have the ability to accelerate development, instill a common language, increase retention, and create proactive problem solvers that will positively contribute to your bottom line.


COACHING ESSENTIALS

Behind every great employee is a great coach. Blanchard's Coaching Essentials is a skills-based, practical training program designed to give your managers the mindset, essential skills, and structured process they need to accelerate development and bring out the best in their people. 

We know you want your managers to be as effective as possible in developing their team members, and Coaching Essentials program can help. With a coaching style of leadership, your managers will become great managers that know how to develop their people and achieve better results for your business.

The Coaching Essentials program aligns with the core coaching competencies as defined by the International Coaching Federation and was guided by Blanchard’s experienced Master Certified Coaches, who have been teaching coaching skills to managers for over 20 years.


FIRST-TIME MANAGER

60% OF NEW MANAGERS UINDERPERFORM

during their first two years. Those that survive develop BAD HABITS that stay with them throughout their career.*

Are your new managers prepared? A great start makes all the difference. 

We know that you want your new managers to be successful, and we can help them get off to a great start with the Blanchard First-Time Manager training program. First-time managers who receive the necessary tools, skills, and training, right from the start, are set up to become effective leaders who can foster engaged, productive direct reports and drive greater results for your organization.

After completing this program, your new managers will have the momentum to successfully create high performing teams and develop future leaders. First-Time Manager builds on the time-tested secrets of the best-selling book, The New One Minute Manager®, and introduces the mindset, core conversations, and communication skills first-time managers need to achieve success quickly and build positive relationships with their team members.


LEADING PEOPLE THROUGH CHANGE

MEREDITHMAIN_BLUEBACKGROUND.jpg

70% OF ALL CHANGE INITIATIVES FAIL.

Failed or stalled change initiatives waste time and money, lower productivity, and increase employee turnover.

The ability to effectively lead people through organizational change is critical to the future success of your company. The most successful companies are agile and embrace change as part of their culture to stay ahead of the competition. When your managers know how to effectively create change, they anticipate resistance, proactively address concerns, and increase buy-in to ensure a successful change implementation and move your organization forward.

The Blanchard Leading People Through Change program teaches your managers how to lead successful, high involvement change initiatives. Managers learn how to identify and address the questions that employees typically raise and how to resolve their concerns to increase buy-in, commitment and involvement.


BUILDING TRUST

Trust is at the heart of every relationship, and it’s especially critical in the workplace. In fact, the primary factor affecting employee turnover is whether or not a trusting relationship was developed between the manager and the employee. The Blanchard Building Trust workshop teaches your managers how to build trust to increase engagement, creativity, and commitment.

When you have trusting relationships between your team members and their leaders, you have the foundation for building a successful organization with higher levels of collaboration, increased creativity and risk-taking, more effective execution of business strategy, and increased commitment and loyalty to your company.
