Promotion into a leadership position requires a radical re-thinking of one’s methods, relations and performance. But there is not enough time and energy to learn new skills. The programme gives new leaders the fundamental tools they need to step to the next level.
Professionals who are confident about their technical skills often do not realize: it is their people skills that can turn them into a leader. Expertise is crucial but not enough. To delegate responsibilities, motivate and evaluate performance, one needs to develop the necessary confidence, empathy and eloquence.
A promotion is the best time to take a critical look at the way you cooperate with others, and start developing your own leadership style. Use your unique talent and start leading by example.
What does a typical programme look like?
We start the project by listening to the client's description of their business, management structure and leadership culture, the successes and challenges that people experience. Before we commit to any changes, we conduct individual assessment using personality or behavioural tools chosen either by the client or by Campanile. Finally, we set clear goals and decide on the best ways to accomplish them: consulting, coaching, workshops or more.
Now that we are familiar with our client's leadership practices, goals and challenges, we design and deliver customised leadership methods in the form of individual and group coaching, skills development and workshops. Depending on the client's needs, the focus may be on delegation, leading teams, feedback, motivation or more. Participants spend most of the time practicing industry-specific case studies and real-work scenarios under realistic time pressure. Each activity builds on the results of the previous one, and can be adjusted accordingly.
Without proper follow-up, consulting, coaching and training becomes a distant memory after six months. We know how busy people are, and therefore we design our projects realistically. From simple reminders to refresher workshops, we offer a dozen ways to turn a single programme into a habit-changing journey of improvement. We also work together with our clients to ensure that levels, units and teams within the company support each other's improvement.
