effective-leadership-skillsEffective leadership skills are of paramount importance to the success of your business. They also relate directly to your company value, yet this essential professional quality is elusive for many executives.

The modern technology-focused business model demands that executives achieve more with less personnel, making leadership development a necessity for growing businesses. 

Achieve More with C.H.A.M.P.™ Principles

Recent studies by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics suggest that new businesses often have had a hard time adapting to this modern market. According to the study, only 70 percent of new businesses survive their first three years of operation, and that number drops to 50 percent after the first five. The overall lack of quality training in effective leadership skills is apparent and emphasizes the value of a training method called the C.H.A.M.P.™ approach. In this post, we review the principles of this approach. 

The C.H.A.M.P.™* Approach to Business Leadership

A commitment to this program entails being paired up with members of a certified coaching staff and access to a wealth of multimedia materials and instructive options. The program is a proven system within the business community and is backed by over 30 years of implementation success. Here, we explain the program's training elements. 

  • C: Coaching and Mentoring employees effectively means being able to accurately assess their strengths and weakness, but also analyzing the work environment to address the circumstances surrounding their productivity. Coaching training will enable you to accurately discern productivity obstacles in individuals and how to successfully steer them towards positive change.
  • H: Hiring, Recruiting and Interviewing effectively will build the character of your company, and also dictate the level of coaching that may be necessary. The hiring process is frequently plagued by pitfalls that are not easily avoidable to the untrained eye. Diligent and focused employees are the greatest asset of a corporate entity, and building that workforce requires nuanced hiring techniques.
  • A: Assessing and Benchmarking are necessary skills if any troubleshooting in the way of coaching or hiring is to take place. Being able to assess your company’s performance objectively and analytically requires a keen understanding of what signs to look for and how to look for it. C.H.A.M.P.™ training involves thorough instruction on the most acclaimed benchmarking tools.
  • M: Managing and Leading are points of great cogitation within the C.H.A.M.P.™ program as a disconnect between a company’s daily routine and the end result are a common catalyst for failure in the modern business paradigm. Expect to go in depth on proven tactics for spotting toxic business methodology, and historically effective models like the Six Sigma process.
  • P: Planning and Implementation requires imbuing your staff with unwavering focus and dedication to your direction as a leader. The creation of a comprehensive plan, with a focus on end results, facilitates effective implementation by employees. The ability to create a workable plan, and the capability to maintain your employees focus on that plan is a crucial aspect of the C.H.A.M.P.™ approach.
* The C.H.A.M.P.™ approach is the basis of a training method developed by Hahn Training, LLC. It focuses on the five critical impact areas described above.

Effective Leadership Skills Sustain Business

The C.H.A.M.P.™ method of building effective leadership skills is more than just a corporate how-to manual, it represents a decades-long, in-depth study into the most refined theories of workplace psychology and human productivity. The process is supported by overwhelming success in the global marketplace, years of field study and undeniable success stories by those who have utilized the program.

Using these principles, small businesses can fully equip CEOs, executives and business owners with the tools and focus to survive in the new economy. Qualified leaders and the right business strategy will ensure your business is prepared and positioned to remain competitive for the long term.
