Turning Teams of Experts into expert Teams

Programs that Drive Results

Do you know for sure that your learning programs have an impact? Whether the program is a 2-hour hands-on workshop or a year-long leadership development program, a ‘surround strategy’ ensures there is a return on your investment of time and money. The Leadership-Link approach to creating an integrated program includes all elements of a surround strategy.

We live and work by the principles defined below to ensure our learning programs and engagements lead to results.

Advances in neuroscience have helped us better understand how our language, tone, and approach can have a significant impact on how our brains perceive, learn, and respond. Our brains are lightening quick to interpret what is going on around us and then even more quickly, make us respond in a closed manner – think fight or flight, defensive – or an open manner – think engaged, positive, leaning forward, trusting. As a leader, coach, or colleague, your words, tone, and body language can have a profound impact on how you are perceived and how other colleagues will respond. Our Leadership-Link courses and engagements address the neuroscience behind the effectiveness of leaders, teams, and organizations. It’s that critical.

Research shows that active involvement by the direct manager is critical to the success of any learning program. The level of involvement and nature of the tasks will be customized for each program based on company culture and leadership styles. Leadership-Link programs, of any length, can include manager calls to gain alignment and commitment of managers to continuously and consistently reinforce the learning efforts of their direct reports.

Leadership-Link colleagues committed to the ideas and practice of a ‘flipped classroom model’ years before it was a popular approach. To maximize the investment on any group learning time, concept papers are frequently used to introduce the topic as a self-paced learning activity. After the introduction to the fundamental concepts, additional pre-session activities are designed to ensure participant preparation. When participants are engaged and prepared before the session, the group can focus on deepening understanding through application of the concepts to real-work challenges!

What observable changes do you expect at the end of the program and what value do those changes generate? A custom dashboard includes measures that will be used to monitor progress and results. This custom dashboard creates shared focus on the end-goal (lagging indicators) and a set of leading indicators that predict progress toward the goals and allow for course correction when necessary.

Dr. Habelow is one of the best conceptual thinkers I've experienced across my career. She understands the why, the how, and the now. CHROs looking for excellent academic credentials coupled with superior practicality should be on Dr. Habelow's client list.
