Is it time to invest in your existing and future leaders?

With unemployment at a record low, holding onto your talent is key to any successful human resourcing strategy. Retention and succession planning is the focus to our 2018 human resource plans.

At The Holst Group we don’t just deliver outstanding psychometric tests. We offer a wide range of short business courses for leaders. These are all designed to develop an overall business acumen. All our courses are guaranteed.

Our professional development portfolio includes:

  • Communication skills for business
  • Finance for business acumen
  • Thinking and creativity skills
  • Facilitation skills
Communication skills for business

Our business communication skills courses teach leaders to speak, present and write clearly. These are essential skills for any business leader and their team. We offer courses that cover everything from ‘speaking on the spot’, through to business writing for impact.

“The art of communication is the language of leadership.”

– James Humes

Finance for business acumen

Our finance for non-finance managers course will teach your leaders how finance moves throughout your organisation. They will learn how balance sheets, cash flow reports and income statements (P&L) interact. They will develop the acumen and confidence to ask their finance team the questions any leader should ask.

“Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.”

– Warren Buffet

Thinking and creativity skills for leaders

Words like creativity and innovation are often used synonymously. It is only when they are understood as separate entities that the processes that support a successful innovation programme are effective. We have a great range of workshops that are fit for this purpose.

“The heart and soul of the company is creativity and innovation.”

– Bob Iger

Facilitation skills

Great leaders not only facilitate conversations, they create the space for groups and teams to explore subjects and reach solutions.

“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

We have a terrific range of courses that teach both basic facilitation skills, as well as advanced models for specific outcomes.

Whatever your needs, our professional development experts are ready to help. They can offer you advice, access to our trainers and coaches, and provide demo sessions for our courses.

Make sure you ask about our evaluator’s rates for our public workshops.
