Our Building Elements for Successful Training Programs

Online Learning: Acquire Knowledge Everywhere
Learn new knowledge with online lessons to prepare for a workshop or reflect on and deepen your abilities with online review sessions – whenever it suits you, completely relaxed from your computer at home or in the office. Lessons dedicated to a single topic, checks-ups to verify the knowledge and online-coaching with a dedicated trainer make this possible.
A meeting got cancelled, 30 minutes of free time for you: why not use this unexpected space in your schedule to repeat some stuff from the last workshop and reflect on the progress you made in your leadership skills? You open the web browser, start with a short review of its main topic, and answer a few questions to see if you’re up to date and to let your trainer know how the transfer into your daily life is working out. Individually prepared tips, answers and advice for you will come by email and in the next personal meetings – so that you can keep getting better at your job continuously.

Five Good Reasons for Online Learning

Power Workshops: Build Up Competence
Learn and train a competence, build up a team, create a shared and harmonized approach. In the engaging group sessions with your personal trainer you will acquire new competences, better understand your colleagues and share experiences and best practices to become more effective in your daily work.
A small group – actively discussing, exercising and evaluating to bring theory into practice. In short sessions of one or two days, focused on a single topic each, you will acquire the relevant knowledge and learn the abilities to master key situations in a leadership position. The key to success after the workshop is trying it out already in its protected environment: therefore we’re giving significant space to games, group exercises and role plays to make the transition from knowledge to ability as effective as possible. Because only the experiences you made first-hand you will really remember.

The workshop will be most effective when combined with individual 1on1 training sessions

Mentoring: Your Expert is Just a Call Away 
Benefit from the continued support of an expert after the successful conclusion of a Qianlead Program: you learned the skills, and now whenever you have questions, need support in a difficult situation or a person to test-drive your ideas with, your mentor is the first person to talk to. To make the already implemented change durable – and to help you grow beyond today’s limits.
An unwilling associate sabotaging a project, insecurity and doubts preventing an urgent decision, conflicts escalating with the boss: examples for difficult situations in which a trusted mentor can be the factor to overcome paralysis – and as consequence harmful failure. Your mentor is first aid in case of need, a sparring partner for your continued development and trusted advisor where you can get answers to the questions you normally wouldn’t dare to ask. Qianlead Mentoring is a combination of periodical reflection sessions and on-demand support to foster long-term professional development.

  • To catalyze a critical level of pressure into learning by provoking a different way of thinking, a change in identity or a re-ordering of values 
Of course you can book every one of these methods individually, but truth be told, the best effect – and the best return on invest – you will create when combining them skillfully together, to build up a competence from scratch to expertise: because you first need to create the consciousness about it, then transfer the knowledge, build up the ability, train it until it becomes natural, and follow it through until the newly acquired skill becomes a natural habit.

Actually, don't tell others – that's the secret success factor of our leadership training. The others are dedicated and emphatic experts in their field of knowledge, and a treasure trove full of relevant experiences, stories, and games that make the process of understanding and learning effortless and engaging.

The System to Unleash the Hidden Powers of Leadership

Inspiring leadership is one of the deciding factors for success or failure, because even the best idea will not materialize in a sold product if the management can not motivate the whole workforce to contribute their part. Big multi-nationals can survive self-centered inefficiency caused by bad leadership for quite some time without immediate danger of failure. The smaller the company is though, the more immediately the impact of bad leadership will become visible – and create desastrous results if no counter measures will be taken. In the end, no one is too big to fail – for the big ones it just takes a bit longer. And when looking back and analyzing why some of those big, famous brands we grew up with do not exit anymore today, usually bad leadership can be identified as one of the main causes for the collapse. 
That’s why we are passionate about great leadership: we focus on personality and attitude as firm foundation for a leader’s development first, and only then on measurable leadership skills that can be learned, trained and assessed. Taken together this becomes a solid foundation for a manager’s systematic development to leadership mastery.
Because we combine elements of group learning with individual skills training, immediate behavioural change happens directly in and after the training – not only in the outcome, but also in approach and attitude. As a result our clients observe already after the first session visible changes in the behavior of the training’s participants: a more conscious approach, a clearer view of the next steps to take, a more goal-centered communication. And because the skills are interdependent, every session adds new aspects to their approach, while the old learnings get repeated and trained continuously.

DEFINITION: SKILLS

A skill is made up of the knowledge how to, and the ability to expertly do it: we define a skill as the ability to achieve a desired result by application of a suitable behavior.
That means three components are necessary in learning a competence: 
  • The experience to identify the situation correctly and to understand its root causes
  • The knowledge about strategies and techniques for solving the situation and reaching the desired objective
  • The ability to applicate said techniques in the actual situation and to focus on the planned solution

ACQUIRING A NEW SKILL

Combining different methods allows for developing skills that are at the same time known to all participants and adapted to the style and approach of every single individual
While the influence of training on the classic KPI in the business context is quite difficult to prove and verify, a successful change in abilities may very well be measured by observing and rating indicators in the behavior and reactions on it. This is not only useful to track improvements made in the training process by analyzing the level of competence before and after the training, it will also become an indispensable tool in the long-term improvement of your managers’ leadership skills and your company’s culture.
Every Qianlead Leadership Skill is not only defined by intention, attitude and behavior, but also by a set of observable indicators that can be rated. And because they are measurable, and thus comparable, a simple approach of benchmarking and sharing of best practices can launch a continuos improvement process, morphing managers step by step into inspiring leaders.
Working with Qianlead changed the mindset of my management team. I can really see every day how they are more involved, and how they work as a team and with their teams bringing the learned concepts into action in a way that the entire organisation shares the benefits. In the second half of our fiscal year we have an average growth of 15% to 20%, and I’m deeply convinced that part of this growth is because we invested in this programme.
