Our Approach to Leadership Development
QLI International offers the tools that lead to increased profitability, as well as meaningful and gratifying work. As no two groups or individuals are alike, there is no single perfect path. What we provide is truly an individualized coaching experience. While we utilize best practices, QLI will align your program to meet your unique individual, team and organizational objectives.
Increasing self-awareness, adaptive leadership, communication skills, and the ability to influence beyond formal authority enables the entire organization to reap the benefits.
Our customized approach is well structured and produces both the business results you need now and the personal transformation that drives future success. We are aligning the development needs of our clients with the objectives of the organization. In the process, we provide a confidential, collaborative, and supportive feedback-rich environment where our clients can gain valuable insights while developing positive new behaviors and habits.
Some of the challenges we help with:
Master how to project mature self-confidence, poise under pressure, authenticity, empathy, warmth, and strength. Acquire a blend of persuasive leadership competencies that inspire trust, enthusiasm, and buy-in.
Whether it’s a high-stakes meeting, a hallway chat with a colleague or a town hall meeting with the entire organization, failure to get the right message across can be costly in many ways. We support leaders to communicate clearly and confidently at every level of the organization, from the boardroom to the water cooler.
Recognize and manage conflict constructively, resolve disputes quickly. We help leaders develop the skills that build collaboration and common purpose, maximize employee engagement, productivity and retention.
We support leaders to hit the (new) ground running and accelerate the mastery of the new challenges. From quickly analyzing new information and developing new competencies to building strong relationships across organizational boundaries, we help leaders create result in their new role faster and add value to the company from day one.
Considering the accomplishment of shared objectives, EQ matters as much as IQ. Acquiring and implementing the skillsets that drive success like team leadership and collaboration, how to build trust, influencing skills, managing emotions, resilience and conflict management are essential in achieving organizational results.
We provide strategic planning facilitation utilizing the most current planning concepts (i.e. OKR) utilized by companies like Google, Intel, Microsoft, etc.
