Strong Leaders = Strong Businesses

Leaders create the standard, enforce and execute the standard - Lead by example.

Leadership Development

Leader development refers to enhancing leadership effectiveness, both at the individual and organization as a whole. Leadership development activities range from MBA style programs offered at university business schools to action learning, high-ropes courses and executive retreats.

Traditionally, leadership development has focused on developing the leadership abilities and attitudes of individuals. Just as people are not all born with the ability or desire to play sports, not all people are natural born leaders. Different personal traits and characteristics can help or hinder a person’s leadership effectiveness and require formalized programs for developing leadership competencies. Everyone can develop his or her leadership effectiveness which takes focus, practice and persistence more akin to learning a musical instrument than reading a book.

Classroom-style training and associated reading is effective in helping leaders to know more about what is involved in leading well. However, knowing what to do and doing what you know are two very different outcomes. It is estimated that as little as 15% of learning from traditional classroom style training results in sustained behavioral change within the workplace.

Training For Results

Changing the behavior for maximum performance. We work collaboratively with your management team to increase your bottom line by increasing productivity while building an environment, beginning with a mindset which flows to an organizational mindset to set a new standard of excellence. Our team has extensive experience in training and development, workflow analysis, change management, leadership, and performance management. We’re ready to assist your organization in assessing goals and aligning behaviors to meet those goals.

We offer varied types of training courses tailored around your needs, ranging from one-on-one professional coaching to on-site group training, some that bring a “boot-camp” level of training style with a fun flair. Please refer to our program page to find out the best program for you.

Transformation

Developing a mission-focused mindset at all levels beginning with Leadership of team and the members of the team, aligning its energy to work together. Transformation of a team involves re-energized sense of purpose, identify, and performance of team members through a variety of proven mechanisms. These include aligning a team member’s identity (self) to the mission and the collective identity of the organization. Leaders serve as role models and catalysts for change, challenging members to take greater ownership for their work, and understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the team to better align efforts, tasks, and enhance operational performance.

Performance

Out performing your competitor while increasing the bottom line profit! Your team will out perform by its more effective leadership and teams who execute with precision, understanding their role and that of the team. We will change your organization’s mindset to work smarter and by leveraging the strengths (both seen and yet to be seen) of their team. An organization often has the skills, talents, and competencies it needs to push a higher lever of performance, and doesn’t have to look outside its walls to get what it already has within them.

Execution

Learn how to execute the mission effectively while building team cohesiveness and assigning tasks with clarity of role and expectation, including overcoming unexpected obstacles. Making the decision to execute and the act of execution itself is where most companies lose its competitive edge (and sliding profit margin). Turn your business intentions into action — the right action! This business essential concept is the way that increases your bottom line — it‘s completing the mission!

Motivation

Starts from the top of the organization! The mindset to change and develop your team will be the driving force to complete the mission. How do you get your team rallied around your mission and have the right attitude to embrace your new motivation and renewed commitment? Create the higher standard of excellence while changing the lives of your team and those they come into contact with, most often their colleagues and customers/clients.

Values

Core values are the guiding principles of your organization and its leaders which become a visible part of how you operate and are interwoven throughout every interaction and every member of your team. Teams with operating values and those that do not will both have visible signs of this within their organization.

We want to help find out the values of your organization to help facilitate incorporating these into your team’s foundation — your culture. Too often, companies do not spend enough time setting their values in motion, which become the influencing “force” behind all of its dealings and relationships. Values (or lack thereof) may be the root cause behind employees and organizations not reaching their full potential.

We grow leaders, organizations and bottom line like no other!

HEB and Forward March Inc.

960x540

The San Antonio Arsenal built in 1859 furnished arms and munitions to frontier forts across Texas and was occupied by the confederates during the Civil War. Throughout World War II, the arsenal shipped more than 337 million pounds of munitions overseas to keep our men and women fighting. Although it was officially closed in 1949, the building remains steeped in military and Texas history. Oh, if those walls could talk!

Although munitions are no longer shipped from the site, it has long been home to another command, control, and logistical operation; it serves as the corporate headquarters for HEB. One of the largest independent food retailers in the nation, HEB provided us the opportunity to train their corporate recruiters on hiring and retaining top military talent. It was a great honor and privilege to train with an outstanding organization on such an historic venue.

IMG_0053

While HEB has always been committed to our Nation’s military both in hiring practices and community outreach, we gave them the tools and training to make their veteran hiring program even better. In our Phase I customized program, we trained their highly motivated corporate staff on in the following areas:

  • Department of Defense Overview
  • Business Case for Hiring Veterans
  • Common Misconceptions about Veterans in the Workplace
  • Understanding Military Lingo
  • Overview of the DD214
  • Veteran Training Resources
  • Veteran Hiring Laws, Rules, and Regulations
  • Veteran Hiring Strategies
  • Interviewing Military
  • Supporting the Nation Guard and Reserve

IMG_0054

A commitment to hiring veterans is great; learning how to do it effectively is excellence in action! We are helping HEB take it to the next level. What can we do for your organization?
