Dec. 3, 2012 - PRLog -- San Diego, CA (December 3, 2012) - The Ken Blanchard Companies, famous for its leadership programs, has launched Blanchard CertifiedTM  with iBank.com. Blanchard Certified is a cloud-based leadership development program especially designed for the busy small business owner and their employees. iBank.com, an online small business community, offers critical financial resources and services to support small business start-ups; franchises; and veteran-owned, minority-owned, and women-owned businesses.

iBank.com founder, entrepreneur, and 13-time small business owner Thomas Markel dreamed of creating a community that would not only connect small business owners to influential professionals such as lenders, insurance agents, and investors but would also take over the mundane tasks of bookkeeping, business plan writing, and credit management to growing small businesses so owners could focus on achieving short-term and long-term goals. Blanchard Certified was selected as the leadership training program for the 350,000 iBank.com small business network.

Blanchard Certified is cloud-based and teaches the small business staff how to

·   Understand and refine their management style so they can better understand each person’s needs and desires

·   Learn proven formulas that meet the challenges of the day and grow their people

·   Inspire their people to execute SMART goals individually and for the company

·   Get everyone on their team moving in the same direction

Thomas Markel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iBank stated, “We selected Blanchard Certified as our Leadership Training system because we have seen the impact that a great leadership program can have on our business. I wish I had learned these leadership skills 35 years ago. Wow! Every small business needs these tools to become a more inspiring leader.”

Upon completion of Blanchard Certified, participants will understand their management style and be able to leverage it to create an environment that lets employees flourish. Blanchard Certified works because it uses proven strategies and tactics honed from more than three decades of leadership research at The Ken Blanchard Companies.

“Leadership training is vital to growing new business and inspiring your managers to execute your corporate vision, but businesses often forgo it because of time and cost. Now companies with limited training budgets and geographically dispersed workforces can take advantage of The Ken Blanchard Companies’ proven approach to leadership development through Blanchard Certified because it’s offered in short but impactful lessons and is focused on real work aligned with goals. And it’s only $249 per leader, per year,” says Madeleine Homan Blanchard, general manager.
