UNDERSTANDING STRENGTHS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Developing talent in an organization requires identifying gaps and opportunities for improvement. More often than not, employees need tools, guidance, and accountability to get measurable personal development results. Fortunately, Lake Forest Graduate School of Management’s (LFGSM) Corporate Learning Solutions has the assessment tools and coaching expertise to we meet your organization’s needs and help you grow.
Our Corporate Learning Solutions (CLS) team is dedicated to partnering with organizations to help them develop and achieve their desired results. Assessments and coaching are essential tools to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your talent and how to address your business needs. That’s why both are integral components of LFGSM Development Programs for all levels of employees.
Assessments as Tools of Insight
Assessments give valuable insights into professional dynamics both at the individual and team level. The business world is all about working with people. Assessments can help individuals understand their own strengths and preferences, and those of their team. That can lead to making adjustments that can improve productivity, and also the atmosphere in which people work.
Coaching Performance, Not Managing Performance
While assessments provide detailed insights into personal and team dynamics, coaching fosters an environment of personal development as a leader. We streamline the assessment process and get to the core of what the results mean. This is where coaching becomes critical. Coaching helps you understand what the data means for you and your business, yielding customized, actionable solutions. What’s more, individuals and teams that are coached to perform, rather than managed to perform, are more personally invested and committed to adopting lasting change that drives results.
LFGSM believes in the power of coaching and assessments to help accelerate performance. We have seen high potential leaders who participate concurrently in individual coaching and leadership development programs accelerate their ability to drive business results and create the necessary followership to be ready for the next level position.
