“One of my favorite sessions focused on various communication styles and the behaviors that typically accompany those styles. I have become more aware and intentional about understanding these differences as I approach work and life experiences while continuing to self-reflect so that I can become a more effective leader.”  ~Savannah Ray, Director of Educational Engagement and Partnerships, Spartanburg Academic Movement (SAM)

Heightened Development provides a variety of trainings, and can also custom design staff and board retreats to meet your needs.

Sample trainings are:

Communication styles rule the world. What is yours? What are your colleagues’? Take and learn about a tool that will help you and your team adjust your communication so everyone engages and hears the right message.* (Board and/or Staff)

Can succession planning help me keep staff engaged? With the right approach, yes it can! Come learn planning tips with employee growth and retention in mind and walk away with a succession tool you can use immediately. (Board and/or Staff)

C-H-A-N-G-E. Is it a word your team is slow to embrace? Learn tried and true methods for managing the most dreaded word in our sector. (Board and/or Staff)

Operational tools as a communication strategy? Yes! Do your organizational chart and budget presentation tell a powerful story?  Do they help someone understand why funding you matters? Are they overwhelming? Do they show what it really takes to achieve your impact?  (Board and Staff)

Are you struggling to support several on your team as they hone some important skills? Learn how peer coaching can help. Skill development in your current team is a large part of successful succession planning but senior leaders are short on time to do it, or money to pay for everyone to have an individual coach. Leaders can, however, introduce coaching tools to their team that encourage adoption of a peer coaching culture within their organization. (Staff)
