Leadership Development Programs

Leadership Development - ibuildcompanies.com by Jeanne Heydecker

I will create budding leaders for you with real business knowledge they can use immediately to grow and be successful.

I have developed a 16-hour weekly Leadership Development program to train and mentor potential leaders within a company. This program focuses on leadership, managing employees, communicating with clients, data collection, performance management, creating proactive business solutions, and execution best practices. My vision is that the outcome is several newly trained leaders at your company that understand the financial consequences of their actions, who make better decisions that will immediately help you grow your business. Your job is to have something for these new leaders to work on. Having conducted this course in multiple iterations over five years, we were successfully able to scale to triple the company size, improving quality, increasing customer delight while expanding into new markets and adding new services each year.

Optional Follow Up

I push continuous innovation by personally delivering this 16 hour courseware, after which the group is divided up into teams that need to come up with a business idea for their particular company – either expanding services to increase client revenue, expanding markets and adding new clients, or streamlining business operations to save time, money, and resources. Each team is required to create a pitch, SWOT analysis, execution plan and budget. We then essentially perform a “Shark Tank” where all C-Level employees or other high level stakeholders evaluate their presentations and determine whether or not to fund them. If they are funded, these team members become their own internal startup. As chief mentor for all internal startups for your company, testing several business models for expanding services and markets, I meet with each founder team at least once a week, go over their execution plans, review milestone achievements, and revenue statements. We then report to the stakeholders each month on where each team is and what our recommendations are for next steps.

We also offer an innovation program where every idea, large or small, goes through a formalized evaluation program. Having a formalized program enables anyone in the company, regardless of title, to suggest ideas which could completely disrupt the way you do business. It is also a gateway for getting your employees into thinking like innovators, even if they are not yet ready for a long Leadership Development Program. Approved projects give the idea submitter a “seat at the table” through the evaluation, funding and execution planning. We provide a downloadable PDF of the process plan free of charge.
