SwiftLeadership™-in-a-box

Leadership training designed to be delivered by managers to front-line supervisors

SwiftLeadership™-in-a-box is a 12 month off the shelf leadership development program designed to be delivered by leaders to frontline supervisors during their regularly scheduled staff meetings (each module is just 30-60 minutes in length). Depending on your organizational structure, it may also be facilitated by internal HR teams to their leadership teams.

The topics are designed to be taught in any order, depending upon the needs of your organization. The result of this program is that we begin to stop thinking of learning as a single training event and begin to shift our organizations into learning cultures, increasing effectiveness and leadership capacity within our organizations.
