TALENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
“To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace.”
~ Doug Conant
Our Performance Management System allows our clients to track what matters in an easy to navigate, cloud-based application. In this suite, managers can create a competency library, set and manage goals for employees, track employees’ progress through the use of manager and 360° evaluations, and offer feedback to employees. In addition, each employee is able to have an automated feedback schedule that will ensure evaluations and performance conversations are not overlooked.
“Succession planning helps build the bench strength of an organization to ensure the long-term health, growth, and stability.”
~ Teala Wilson
Our Succession Planning application helps prepare organizations for the reality that good employees leave. With this application, an organization’s leadership is able to define talent needs, identify high-potential leaders, develop that talent, and track employee readiness when positions become available. With our succession planning tool, there is no doubt that you will have all the necessary information when the inevitable happens.
LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
“Online learning is not the next big thing, it is the now big thing.”
~ Donna J. Abernathy
Our Learning Management System creates real opportunities to integrate online learning with succession planning. In addition to creating a rail system for e-content to be delivered, we help our clients assure compliance, manage succession, and build content libraries.
SHARED SERVICE SOLUTIONS
“Shared services are the answer to heightening value and decreasing cost in today’s competitive markets.”
~ Kyle Kyzer
Courageous Leadership Business Solutions allow companies to keep costs under control while also receiving new levels of performance. When Courageous Leadership enters into an agreement with non-competing businesses, businesses are allowed to really focus on the parts of their business they do best. The services offered by Courageous Leadership can include recruiting, training, leadership initiatives, communications, specific business analytics, etc.
“The most dangerous kind of waste is the waste we do not recognize.”
~ Shingeo Shingo
No business can afford to be wasteful. Whether companies are suffering from financial, performance, or material waste, our lean solutions will increase efficiencies and strengthen profits. When companies are able to achieve better results with less, they are free to invest in new business growth initiatives.
“Most people don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan.”
~ John L. Beckley
Courageous Leadership can come alongside your organization’s leadership for a deep-dive into the business to identify the core issues you are facing and determine specific, relevant solutions. After the plan has been created, our staff will work with your organization to implement and optimize its effectiveness.
“Good coaches provide a truly important service: they tell you the truth when no one else will.”
~ Jack Welch
Our coaching process begins with a two-day Personal Leadership Summit (PLS) in which individuals are given the time and space to reconnect to the core places of his/her identity. Afterwards, clients will meet regularly to achieve particular strategic goals, while also developing the skills necessary to deepen the impact of one’s actions.
“One of the truest signs of strength is accepting one’s own weaknesses.”
~ Tadahiko Nagao
Through the use of personality and performance assessments, we will help you identify your inter-personal and intra-personal proficiencies in order to strengthen and build upon your leadership skills and practices.
“Colleagues are a wonderful thing – but mentors, that’s where the real work gets done.”
~ Junot Diaz
This mentoring tool allows groups of three to receive many of the benefits of a coaching relationship. This customizable tool will help develop leaders and achieve organizational goals.
We believe the first question to every problem warrants the question, “Who is with us?” It’s essential to know what personal, strategic, and operational relationships we have to work with and to seek guidance from. It’s these stakeholders who will pull us to a better understanding of what’s possible, what’s necessary, and what must be done. This level of awareness is not achievable alone.
With guidance from your stakeholders, we must next come to an understanding of what you are seeking to achieve. Are you looking to grow your client base, increase your business’s efficiencies, or become the preferred employer in your region? Without a correct understanding of what you’re seeking to become, it’s impossible for us to know where you are on that mission.
With your destination in mind, we’re able to correctly assess your current strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats, and trends (SWOTT). This analysis will consider the most important aspects of your business to ensure a systemic solution. Understanding where you are in relation to where you are going allows us to see the true “gaps” in your business.
Finally, once we have identified your stakeholders, envisioned your ideal future, and generated an appropriate rendering of your current state, we will begin to map out a plan of action. We will consider the SWOTT analysis and your available resources to create a strategy for achieving your goals. This plan will not only consider immediate next steps, but will encourage you to ask the question, “What’s the next right thing?”
