One of the key challenges that companies experience in the area of people development is knowing whether or not a person who is sent to training has understood what they learned, has retained what they learned, and can utilize the new skills. This predicament has snowballed into a massive headache today due to the unprecedented situation created by COVID. As gathering all employees into a corporate training center for companywide training is prohibited, businesses are struggling to ensure the efficiency of development programs. The situation is even worse for the businesses that grow through acquisition. They not only have people working from home, but their organizations are also spread all over the country, and in some cases, all over the world. Therefore, consistent people development, communication, and development of a consistent culture, and people preparation for larger leadership roles is a real challenge today. Enter Leadership Science Institute, LLC (LSI).
The LSI flexibility in people development delivery methods has been very effective in assisting clients. “At LSI, we assess a person’s skill level which establishes a baseline and then develop a coaching and training program specific to that individual. This significantly increases the individual’s retention as well as ability to utilize the learned skill,” says Wayne L. Anderson, Executive Leadership Coach, Trainer, and CEO of LSI.
At its core, LSI is a one-stop-shop when it comes to people development. Rather than engaging three different companies (i.e., skills assessment, coaching, and training companies), clients can receive all of those services from LSI. “Whether you are an employee looking for a career boost; a motivational business coach who needs credentials; an executive seeking to create, reorganize, or improve an HR department; or a private consultant who needs to level-up skills, LSI—as a “Top Leadership Development” company—is ready to help you achieve your goals,” mentions Anderson.
At LSI, we assess a person’s skill level which establishes a baseline and then develop a coaching and training program specific to that individual
For instance, LSI combated a situation where a company was having difficulty resolving conflicts that were hindering their productivity. LSI was able to determine the problem after assessing all the client’s employees. They developed a training and coaching program for the client that helped them adjust their culture. The results were a significant increase in conflict resolution and productivity.
Such has been the prowess that LSI has garnered over the years by assisting many such clients. The company follows the adage that “A rising tide lifts all boats.” In this context, Anderson mentions that coaching professionals usually focus on the top leadership, which is generally one-half to one percent of the company. But, LSI coaches everyone regardless of their position. “We do not care if their position is receptionist or CEO. We believe that if a person is in a company, then their position is important. In addition, if we can help everyone be better at what they do—whatever that is—there will be an overall benefit to the entire company (i.e., a rising tide),” mentions Anderson.
Recently, LSI announced its partnership with Presland Coaching Institute to add a new certification to its suite of customized HR development programs: HR Coach Certification (HRCC). “In addition to our HRCC, we plan to add to our coach certification programs in the near future. We will specifically provide a coach certification program for business leaders and professionals,” states Anderson. Further, the company has also partnered with the Adam County Regional Economic Partnership (AC-REP) to help them develop and facilitate their leadership development program. This program will provide a new series of leadership skills programs for the Adams County metro region in Colorado. “We’re honoured to support the AC-REP community by elevating their upcoming leaders with the skills and insights needed to be effective and confident leaders in the North Metro area and in their respective organizations,” informs Dr. Danielle Hicks, Ph.D., Industrial Organizational Psychologist and President of LSI.
