Leadership Development Training

Our world is always changing. Part of this evolution includes facing new challenges and adapting with rapidly changing skills. Organizations are working in different capacities, and some are failing or succeeding – often in areas that were not in their original vision.

To keep up, leaders need to follow the advice of Marshall Goldsmith, "What got you here, won’t get you there," meaning that life is about continuous learning. The skills that helped you in your current position will need to evolve to make you better at what you do. If you’re interested in moving up the ladder, the skills you have now won't be the same ones to help you move up. Baldwin Wallace has a variety of programs designed for leadership development, beneficial for individuals and their organizations, with skill areas that match strategies, competencies, motivators, behaviors and cultures.

Several of our open enrollment courses are below.

Coaching and Mentoring

This course focuses on how to better coach your employees to higher performance. Coaching is a process of relationship building and setting goals.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Positive organizational culture is critical. In today’s environment, it’s even more true. Diversity, equity, and inclusion should not be seen as compliance, box-ticking exercises. To attract, retain, and grow employees, organizations need to create thriving cultures that embrace inclusivity, provide fair representation and opportunities, foster a sense of belonging, and make sure diversity, equity and inclusion are truly ingrained in the environment.

In each of these scenarios, we’ve always found the collective mindset and most successful results when you do the exact opposite of what everyone else is doing to pull through it.
