Training Focus Areas

Personal Leadership

Personal Leadership is an introspective and self-reflective program. Self-assessment tools and 360° Leadership Assessments are used to gain insights into your unique combination of leadership strengths and developmental opportunities, as well as understanding your communication style and how it affects relationships with those around you.

Leadership Engagement

Here we focus on developing several key areas associated with effective interpersonal engagement and the leadership of people. These workshops are essential leadership practices designed to equip managers with the practices and competencies necessary to lead successfully at the personal, interpersonal, team and organizational levels.

Management Effectiveness

The Management Effectiveness program is designed to develop and/or enhance your effectiveness to recognize problems and opportunities, determine effective solutions, and form/execute appropriate action plans. This series will provide you with the knowledge, tools, frameworks, and processes to effectively manage your priorities and objectives from achieving your objectives through to measuring success.

Our Principles

Future Focus has been working with owner-managed companies for several years, and we are very intentional with building a leadership training program that is uniquely designed for small to mid-size enterprise (SME).  We created the Leadership Effectiveness Program with very specific principles in mind:

  • Practical – the concepts and training must be practical and relevant to leaders
  • Realistic – we don’t teach fancy theory. We teach real concepts that can easily be applied into our daily leadership
  • Impactful – our approach is to ensure there is a positive impact on the lives of our leaders and the businesses they work within
  • Habitual – you can’t change a person in a 3-day leadership program, but you can help leaders transition their skills and capability – one habit at a time:
    • Learn one or two concepts at a time
    • Interactive discussion and practice in class to make it real
    • Commitment and accountability to practice new habits 
    • One-on-one coaching to support the new habits and discuss any barriers
    • Accountability to your peers in class
  • Affordable – we created our program to make it accessible and affordable to owner-managed companies!
  • Time-effective – in-class learning is a half day a month with one-on-one follow ups by phone so leaders can remain active in their roles

As with our clients, we are continuously driving improvements to the Quality – Cost – Delivery of our products and services.

Testimonials

The LEP program has fundamentally changed how I approach my role as a leader, and how I manage my tasks and those of my team. With more than 10 years of experience in a leadership role, I feel like this program has finally given me the tools and knowledge to be an actual leader and not just a manager in my career path.

  • KWE Technologies Group

Very few leadership programs leave you with a lasting impact. I continuously refer to what I call my “Leadership bible.” – the material learned in this course is truly a keeper.  The topics covered are very relevant to today’s workplace and the leadership style that needs to be present for an organization and its people to be successful.

  • Now Housing Inc.

The LEP program was hugely valuable to me.  Everything I’ve learned and been able to implement into my business has set me up to grow personally and professionally.  I feel confident knowing that I now have resources to help in any situation.  For me, the KPI’s and learning about the different personalities and how to deal with them was extremely valuable.
