New Call-to-actionWant stronger leadership at all levels? Want better results from your training investments? Forget all the failed "experiments" and go with a proven approach.

The Six Disciplines processes, software, and leadership development program are all designed around a common set of best-practices competencies.

Finally, you can enroll your employees in a leadership workshop that introduces proven, best-practices and competencies. Following the workshop, participants in the Performance Management Program learn how to apply those principles every day, in real, on-the-job situations. No more attending a leadership workshop to realize a year later - that nothing has changed.

Use integrated software tools that challenge everyone to lead and manage

The business management guru, Peter Drucker, defined management as "doing things right" and leadership as "doing the right things". Six Disciplines embraces the concept that everyone has both a leadership AND a management responsibility. While the time horizons may be shorter and the number of people affected may be fewer, everyone in your organization needs to understand both the "right things to do" AND understand "how to do them right". 

 

'Management is doing things right.

Leadership is doing the right things.'

-Peter F. Drucker

Be intentional about building leadership competencies that are vital for success

Your organization has five key leadership roles that are critical to your success:

 

Self Leadership. - the ability to lead and manage your self. Take responsibility and work effectively with others.

Functional Leadership - the ability to lead and manage a group of people in a similar function. (departments for example).  

Change Leadership - the ability lead a cross-functional group to successfully complete a project.

Cross-Functional Leadership - the ability to lead an on-going committee or process management team that has a continuing mission (in contrast to a project).

Strategy Leadership - the ability to set long-term vision and change priorities for the organizatoin as a whole.

Each of these leadership roles has a different set of competencies that are essential, and they all depend on the self-leadership foundation being present. No one can lead others if they can't lead themselves. Every person in your organization has a self-leadership role, and veryfrequently, many individuals serve in other leadership roles as well.

How to think "different":  train from the 'bottom up' AND the 'inside out'

The Six Disciplines leadership development program starts with self-leadership, focusing on skills like openness, honesty, and emotional intelligence - before we concentrate on advanced best-practices like strategic thinking or change management. Next, we work with your organization on workgroup skills, such as functional leadership (think: departments), or change leadership (projects). After these more granular concentrations, we're ready to work with you on enterprise-wide leadership disciplines, like the toughest one: strategy formulation and execution.

We turn your 1-day leadership workshop into year-round results

How do we make leadership training competencies into everyday habits for your organization?  Here's how Six Disciplines is different:

  • We'll enroll your workgroups as a team, so they learn together 
  • We'll benchmark your organization's leadership proficiency - before the workshop (so you can measure progress)
  • We'll show you how to set a specific goal that will be measured over the year - BEFORE the workshop is over
  • We'll enroll your teams in our Performance Management Program 
  • We'll show you how to consistently review performance and leadership progress in weekly and quarterly check-ins
  • We'll measure organizational leadership proficiency and competency through benchmarking annually

During our leadership development workshops, you're introduced to a 6-step team engagement process. However, after the workshop, the most IMPORTANT ascpect is that the workgroup leader and members are provided coaching and software tools to help apply this model - every day. The result is on-the-job leadership development where reinforcement of best-practices get continously reinforced.

 What did you learn from the Six Disciplines Self-leadership Workshop?

"... about setting goals. Priorities, determining what's important and what's not"

“how different departments approach the same dilemmas in different ways. Good to have sales and operations speaking openly”

“how to work smarter“

“a little extra preparation up front will lead to less problems in the end.”

“to stop and look at myself first to improve my surroundings” 

“how others see me and the things I need to improve on to be a better leader and co worker”

“that we all do not communicate well together and we need to improve on the "Team" building.”

“agile execution management was helpful to me. I pride myself in good planning however there were a few takeaways from this that I can incorporate to help me better prioritize better”

"We need to be able to admit our faults and wrong doing and work together to correct the problem so not to make the same mistake twice. Not accuse and point fingers”
