Developing Executives is different from working with other groups based on the complexity of their roles, the limits on their time, and the often-filtered experience executives have. Janson Associates have over 25 years of experience in building custom executive and leadership development programs in over a dozen countries and in nearly every state within the United States.
Programs range from a few days to a full year. Components include executive assessments, action learning teams, guest speakers, online work, large and small group lectures from experts and more. Our facilitators partner with your internal leaders, or we seek out experts to tailor the program to best fit your culture.
Janson Associates can help you unlock your potential as a manager by providing access to specific skills, knowledge, and exposure required to best execute the role. When employees step into manager roles, they’re often given little time and direction on how to best execute the position and are expected to be good managers from the get-go. Additionally, often managers who have been in place for a long time don’t have the necessary skills to create high performing teams. This costly practice is common, and there is no surprise that time and time again, managers’ effectiveness is rated poorly by their employees.
Bad management is one of the top contributors to low employee engagement, and ultimately, poor retention. (Workday)
We work with individuals, teams and organizations to situationally and systematically help managers be the powerful entity they are designed to be.
You often hear the phrase “career development” bantered around but what’s interesting is that it is often one of the most sophisticated concepts for organizations and individuals alike.
People have careers; organizations don’t. People should clearly understand that the career planning process should be driven and owned by the employees. Smart companies help and hold managers accountable to be strong supporting players, but that’s merely an accelerant. Even if you have that level of support in an organization, it’s still up to the individual.
In addition to providing career development advice and expertise, we combine our skills to help you prepare for any upcoming interviews you may have.
