Client Story

Find out what it’s like to participate in Lead Vantage training.

In 2021, we began our work with Lead Vantage as they designed and delivered a customized program for our newly promoted Managers. Fast forward to today, we have expanded our partnership with Lead Vantage on leadership development training and coaching to all levels of our leadership team.

At every phase of the design and delivery of the programs, Lead Vantage has ensured that we have been set up for success, helping us bridge the people and business side of our initiatives. Their level of care and attention to our needs as a firm has resulted in a strongly executed program.

Their leadership modules are well-structured, clear, practical, interactive, relevant, and powerful. Their shared and lived experience in leadership is vast and has enhanced the training for participants. As facilitators, they have struck the right balance of educating and engaging. They have been vulnerable in their approach to training, sharing their stories and experiences openly. This has resulted in our team of leaders establishing trust right at the onset of our partnership with Lead Vantage and has created a learning environment that is safe where participants more readily engage in deeper conversations.

The Lead Vantage program has supported our leaders in their career development, providing them with the clarity on how to set meaningful and impactful goals aligned to their personal and professional wants and the needs of the firm. The Lead Vantage program has been time well spent, resulting in learning, growth and development of leadership capabilities that will serve our leaders, the teams they lead, and our firm for years to come.

Questions & Answers

I'm not sure if we need training programs. Our leaders can learn on the job.

We understand it can take some planning to implement training programs in your organization. Through our work, we see the investment in specific leadership development does pay off. We design customized programs to solve the real concerns your business is facing. Our background in business and learning development make these programs more effective than most in-house approaches. We can also ensure the training sticks with individualized coaching and custom-developed longer-term training programs that address the root of the problem.

We're concerned about taking time away from work for training.
We understand that you may be hesitant to take time away from work for training. However, the cost of not addressing the problem is much greater. At Lead Vantage, we provide training programs that are tailored to your business’s specific needs and designed to produce real results as efficiently as possible. Our training equips leaders to solve the real problems they face in the organization and build a culture where employees are happy to come to work and contribute their best and most exciting ideas.
We're hesitant about bringing in external consultants.

We also work closely with your leadership team to ensure they are fully on board and leading by example.
I'm worried that the change won't last.
We understand! We know how disappointing it is to invest in training that doesn’t last when the workshop ends.

Our goal is to empower your people to create a culture of excellence that lasts well beyond the duration of our programs.
I have other priorities to consider. Why is this important right now?
