Existing Training Needs a Refresh | Case Studies and Testimonials

Companies often discover their old training programs no longer meet their current needs. Seminars, workshops, or classes at the community college often overwhelm supervisors with too much information. Many of these offerings are more motivational than educational. Web-based learning libraries and online PowerPoint e-learning courses don’t get used.

View our case studies and testimonials to learn how The Leadership Journey™ has helped companies overcome this challenge.

A Focus on Leadership Development at ABHM Reduces Turnover 10%, Boosts Employee Satisfaction, and Improves Patient Care

American Baptist Homes of the Midwest (ABHM) wanted to create a formal leadership development program to improve employee satisfaction with the objective of reducing employee turnover.

ABHM’s frontline leaders were skilled at performing their operational work, but most had no formal training or experience in supervising or managing others.

Learn how ABHM used The Leadership Journey™ to reduce turnover by 10%, improve employee satisfaction, and build strong communication between staff, residents, and their families ensuring a better care experience. View case study highlights.

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.
