Prepare your next generation of executive leaders

In leading critical business functions, your senior leaders are the bridges between the executive team’s vision and the managers of the company’s day-to-day execution. Senior leaders are charged with translating broad goals into departmental and operating unit tasks.

Motivate teams
Great senior leaders inspire and engage their teams through effective communication, creating a culture of high performance and accountability, and fostering an inclusive work environment.

Create a customer-centric organization
As advocates for exceptional internal and external customer service, senior leaders set the example for accountability, innovation, and soliciting feedback to anticipate customer needs.

Senior leaders operationalize the organization’s vision and values

Senior leaders transform the company’s vision into departmental and division goals, fostering cross-organizational collaboration, leading change initiatives, and inspiring innovation. These leaders are the key to creating an inclusive, high-performance workplace culture that reflects the company’s values. Blanchard believes senior leaders benefit from evidence-based leadership training frameworks and opportunities to discuss challenges and share best practices with their senior management peers. In their roles, senior leaders must be able to:

  • Identify and implement appropriate work structures and processes to accomplish goals
  • Bring cross disciplinary knowledge to bear on issues and opportunities
  • Manage and develop effective working relationships with people from other functions to achieve common objectives 
  • Create a nimble environment based on a culture of adjustments and realignment
  • Advance diversity and inclusion, engaging diverse teams to solve business challenges
