April 28, 2010 - PRLog -- Lisle, Illinois, April 21, 2010. The Corporate Learning Institute announces new and expanded services to clients needing leadership development training. CLI President Dr. Susan Cain explained, “Now more than ever organizations are struggling to redefine their purpose and approach. It is imperative that leaders emerge from the recession with clarity, but a dual focus on compassion for workers as well as for real performance accountabilities,” she remarked. Developing leaders in today’s marketplace is an important task, as a leadership shortage is predicted within the next ten years. The need for consultants to help develop leaders is an important undertaking.
How leaders will do that is the subject of two new leadership programs offered at the institute. The first program is called Leadership Now, and is a full-day session offering emerging and existing leaders some new insights about leading in today’s changing marketplace. “This program offers leaders a snapshot of their new role, as compassionate and positive, and as champion of performance improvements”, Cain explained. Recent studies conducted nationwide show what workers may be dissatisfied with their jobs, yet be reluctant to leave their position for fear of not being rehired for another position. “This is a real, live issue, and leaders need to rethink how they have can motivate their people, despite the economic environment,” Cain stated.
The second program that CLI has designed in response to the economic demands of the time is called Leadership for Today, and is a six-session workshop that allows leaders to complete a 360-degree assessment, as well as a personal action plan for enhanced performance. “This workshop is offered in two days or can be offered in shorter sessions over time”, Cain suggested.
Both emerging leaders as well as veteran leaders can benefit from leadership consulting services at CLI. Emerging leaders benefit by developing new skills, and veteran leaders benefit by refreshing their pallet of skills. CLI tailors training programs to fit the needs of the specific organizations. For example, an organization may need emphasis on one area over another. Dr. Cain concluded by noting that training can be delivered in the classroom, on the internet or at the CLI offices at the Marriott Hickory Ridge Conference Hotel in Lisle, Illinois.
