For all participants, including team leaders and first-line managers, putting the learning into their specific business context is crucial to the level of lasting benefit they will derive from a development programme.
Use of specific business language and of case study examples that reflect their day-to-day management experiences at work will create a far greater impact than theoretical input alone - and will ensure rapid and effective transfer of learning back to the workplace and an immediate benefit from new skills and insights.
For senior participants, including middle and senior managers, contextual wisdom is a vital attribute of the business leader. Through our team of specialists, including associates engaged in academic research where appropriate, the team at Ashorne Hill supports the development of business leaders in their acquisition of commercial, strategic and market knowledge. Our experienced facilitators can also support middle managers in their challenge of strategy implementation.
Programmes can also be designed to provide a platform for senior leaders to convey information and to explain and win support for strategic decisions - for example to communicate a corporate message, to engender change, or to reinforce strategic direction. Senior Management Team workshops can also be facilitated covering strategy generation and deployment.
Working in partnership with each customer organisation, Ashorne Hill begins by conducting a thorough corporate training needs analysis - designing a tailored learning programme that will address specific individual growth and target business objectives.
