  • Designed and facilitated a highly complex, five-day senior-level leadership development program for a large bank’s senior/executive VPs. The program included individual feedback and debriefs, team simulations, action learning (i.e., specific issues to study, resolve and present to CEO), communication practice, and coaching skills training.
  • Created a leadership training curriculum for all management at a large financial institution based on a needs assessment linked to its competency model. Developed and facilitated high energy programs geared to VPs and above, taking into account the audience’s heavy “Gen X” factor. Programs were highly customized to provide participants opportunity to discuss organizational culture, issues, and senior management points of view and to receive feedback on skills related to the organization’s competency model. Provided follow-up analysis to determine the impact of training, which was impressive when linked to performance ratings and promotion rates.
  • Conducted needs assessments for a large real estate development/investment company and created a modularized management training program, with intensive half-day training sessions offered once a quarter. Modules include application exercises and are timed to coincide with specific organization needs (e.g., change management during acquisition, performance reviews at year end).
  • Managed an entire training function for a Fortune 500 company’s exempt employees on an outsourced basis for over five years. Conducted needs analysis, designed curriculum, developed and delivered management-level leadership programs.
