Preparing the next generation of leaders
Preparing Leaders and Promoting Team Performance
Cygnus Services’ Leadership Development Journey (LDJ) is a 12-month, online leadership development program that prepares teams of 6-8 emerging leaders from the same organization for senior leadership positions.
An Engaged Workforce
Research shows that unhappy, unengaged employees are more stressed, less productive, and likely to suffer burnout. Investing in leadership development for emerging leaders means investing in your organization’s future. Leadership development opportunities will increase participants’ engagement at work, which is likely to have a positive, synergistic effect on the all employee engagement throughout the organization.
A Better Bottom Line
Leadership Development Journey is a smart investment: the cost of leadership development is much less expensive than replacing employees. The costs of employee turnover -- interviewing, hiring, training, reduced productivity, lost opportunity costs, etc -- can be 30% of that person’s annual salary. (And for a high-level or highly specialized employee, it can cost more than 200% of the annual salary!)
Employers benefit when employees are offered opportunities for improvement and the authority to take control of their work and life. Our services promote resiliency, personal management skills, and greater capacity for leading change. Through shared learning and experience, participants also develop stronger relationship with other leaders, creating a network of support within your organization.
Professional Growth through Executive Coaching
Offered in person or by telephone, one-on-one professional coaching offers a safe space and framework for emerging leaders to think through career and leadership issues in a more deliberate way. Available in six or twelve-month packages, the long-term accountability of a coaching relationship offers ample time for sustainable personal growth.
