C-Suite at Tenaris

C -suite and other senior executives and directors have a tendency to set themselves above corporate training. After all, they reason, if they weren’t accomplished experts, they wouldn’t be in their current positions.

Tenaris CEO Paolo Rocca sponsored a three-day senior executive-level training event in Italy, with the aim of making it prestigious, competitive, and invaluable to high-potential leaders.

Introvert Vs. Extrovert Leaders

The task-oriented, reflective individual who could spend hours in her office alone getting work done and the exuberant elbow rubber who’s happiest circulating among peers and employees appear to have little in common. But they both can make great leaders under the right conditions.

Introvert and extrovert leaders each have unique strengths. The key is to offer leadership development that teaches leaders about themselves and what works best for each style of leadership.

Supercompetent Speaking: Before and After Tips

By Laura Stack, MBA, CSP As professional speakers, it’s our goal to implant our messages firmly in our listeners’ minds. But some research indicates that 90 percent of audience members forget every brilliant thing you uttered within 30 days.

By Dennis N.T. Perkins “For scientific discovery, give me Scott; for speed and efficiency of travel, give me Amundsen; but when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.” —Sir Edmund Hillary

Taming the Uncivilized Beast

By Jeff Cohen Ed had two reputations. In financial circles, he was perceived as a confident, larger-than- life and creative CFO. At his company, he was known to direct reports and colleagues as the “equal opportunity abuser.” Arrogant and caustic, he often treated anyone who disagreed with him with hostility and sarcasm. After receiving this feedback, the president had heard enough about Ed’s incivility and brought in an executive coach to “straighten Ed out.” The coach was given three months (it took eight) to help Ed modify his acerbic behavior.

Spin Doctor for Customer Service

By Dulce Gonell-Holderby, Training Account Manager Signature Worldwide Dealing with customer complaints is not fun. We all have been through an experience in which the customer was not a happy camper. So how do you prevent this unhappy customer from passing on their negative experience to their friends, family, and the world, especially since we are a society of technology and we share things at a moment’s notice?

Train to Last!

By Shirzad Chamine, Chairman, CTI Billions of dollars are wasted on training and development each year. Within six months of most expensive trainings, whether meant to strengthen leadership skills, emotional intelligence, selling ability, or customer service, many participants can barely recount what they learned or point to what has changed.

Transformational Leaders

By Randy Harrington, Ph.D., and Carmen E. Voillequé Chapter 1: Evolutionaries It is difficult to manifest and sustain strategic clarity in a world where thousands of tasks bog down the days and the rules seem to change the moment we gain momentum. The sad truth is that most organizations are simply trying to reduce the frustration of a beleaguered staff who see winning as surviving, biding time until some external force defines their options and direction for good or ill.

Leadership Development that Really Works

By Mark Miller, VP, Organizational Effectiveness, Chick-fil-A I’ve been selling chicken for more than 30 years and in the training profession for just over a decade. However, throughout my career, the question of leadership development has been ever present. In the early days, we had a sophisticated process for leadership development. I call it emersion and osmosis. It was built on two tenants:

10 Tips for Leaders to Make Your Meetings GREAT!

By Mark Miller, Vice President, Organizational Effectiveness, Chick-fil-A Meetings matter. If done well, they multiply our time, increase our productivity, tap into the collective wisdom and creativity of the group, yield better decisions and better results.

Here are 10 tips to help your team master a few basics for empowering your meetings, starting today.

Training: Mandatory or Not?

By Dan Cooper, CEO, ej4.com A large organization was talking about expanding its initial entry into e-learning and made a statement common among trainers: “We’re not ready yet to make our training mandatory.” This usually means they have tried to require training in the past and received enormous push-back from learners and their managers.
