Leadership Development – Session 1

February 13 - February 14

Leadership Development Programs

Leadership Development (Scheduled)

Program Summary:
One of the themes that consistently arises at all of Currie’s dealer/distributor group meetings is how to develop leaders. At times it is your identified successor(s) of your dealer/distributorships, or it might be your current managers that have leadership potential

Currie looks at the development of a dealer/distributor leader on two levels. The first level is basic business knowledge. This knowledge is specific to your industry and to dealerships/distributorships which includes knowing the Currie Financial Model with all the details. The second level of development centers on the leadership behaviors that drive the execution of the Currie Financial Model. The leadership behaviors that are taught are the building blocks of great leadership. These factors include mental agility, interpersonal finesse, change mastery, and goal orientation. The Currie process combines the knowledge of the Financial Model with leadership behaviors in an environment where they can safely begin to develop.

Our response to your inquiry about how to develop leaders for your organization is a forum by which we educate and coach these leaders through a series of meetings (each quarter for a period of one year) and monthly coaching calls. We are happy to report that over 100 managers/leaders have completed the Currie Leadership Development series.
