The City of Aiken Achieves Overwhelming Success Bringing Leadership Training In-house

With a reduced budget and increased costs, only a few of their supervisors could be trained at a local community college, so the City of Aiken decided to bring training in-house.

Aiken had a one-person HR department, and time was a scarce resource, so they wanted an off-the-shelf turnkey solution.

Supervisors and managers were promoted from within, so leadership training had to work for existing leaders as well as employees who were next in line for promotion. Courses had to fit within regularly scheduled meetings, align with organizational values, and be relevant to the city’s new mentoring program.

Learn how the City of Aiken used The Leadership Journey™ to improve leadership skills, people skills, and confidence in supervisors and managers. Discover how their soon-to-be leaders were able to hit the ground running after being promoted and why participation requests increased 100%. View case study highlights.
