Self Leadership Training Program Wins International Business Award for Best New Service of the Year

Blanchard's Newly Revised Self Leadership Program Receives Bronze Stevie® Award
SAN DIEGO - Aug. 22, 2017 - PRLog -- The Ken Blanchard Companies®, a global leader in management training, was recently named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award for the Best New Product or Service of the Year for its Self Leadership program in the 14th Annual International Business Awards.

The International Business Awards are the world's premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide—public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small—are eligible to submit nominations. The 2017 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories.

A record of more than 3,900 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in a wide range of categories including Company of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Startup of the Year, and Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year. Blanchard's Self Leadership program won in the Best New Product or Service of the Year—Business-to-Business Services category.

The Self Leadership ( program uses a research-based approach to developing proactive employees based on Situational Leadership® II (SLII®), the most widely taught leadership model in the world, and strengthens an organization's investment in a leadership curriculum that includes SLII®. The program was updated with a blend of brief learning segments, engaging videos, dynamic activities, and interactive debriefs, with numerous practice and reflection opportunities.

"When people don't know how to get what they need to be successful, executing on strategy often fails. Self Leadership teaches individuals the mindset and skillset to proactively achieve their goals and accelerate their own development," says Susan Fowler, Senior Consulting Partner and employee motivation expert who is the leading author of the Self Leadership program. "When organizations invest in the talent they have, employees progress toward their goals faster, are less likely to leave, and more likely to flourish."

"Blanchard's newly revised Self Leadership Program offers leadership training, promotes a self-starter work culture, and provides the tools necessary to enable team members," said one of the IBA judges. "This training promotes proactive conversation capability and so much more, making it a strong candidate for the 2017 Best New Product or Service of the Year—Business-to-Business Services IBA."

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated on 12 juries.

"The IBA judges from across the world were highly impressed with the nominations they reviewed this year. With the level of achievement documented in the nominations from 60 nations, the Stevie Awards are proud to honor organizations that demonstrate a high level of achievement in a variety of industries," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "We look forward to sharing many of these stories with people around the world over the coming months, through the Stevie Awards blog and social media channels, with the hope to inspire others to high achievement."
