Leaders in Training.

You're a practiced trainer aspiring to become the authority on training within your organization. As world-leading professional trainers, we at American Management association believe that success as a leader depends on three things: vision, flexibility, and influence.

Vision: Don't just stay a step ahead of rapidly changing business demands, be the one who can explain where business is going so that your organization embraces new directions rather than simply following trends.

Flexibility: Great leaders know that all plans change when theories are put into practice. You need the skills and methods that help you make the hard, real-time decisions that are the hallmarks of effective leaders. 

Influence: The best leaders create more new leaders than they create followers. These are the leaders whose teams, when a task is accomplished, say 'we did it ourselves.'

Our programs will help you utilize these three leadership skills and apply them to your career as an authority in training. You will learn:

  • Marketing: Use marketing skills, tools and techniques to effectively market training courses within your organization.
  • Strategic Planning: Learn how to make training a fundamental part of strategic planning.
  • Finance: When it comes to the bottom line, everything boils down to dollars and cents. Master budget management and teach participants to translate their performance into financial terms.
  • C-suite Communication: Communicate effectively to C-suite executives to prove the value of training.
  • Technology: Make the rapid pace change of learning technology your opportunity and not your challenge.
