Training and Development Opportunities

Below are the various training, development, and presentation opportunities that I offer.  Any of these will be tailored to you or your organization’s specific needs in terms of content, methodology, and time.  My training style is VERY interactive and facilitative, drawing upon both my experiences and those of the participants. 

Please contact me at 724-462-9962 or at jimdittmar@jimdittmar.com to discuss how we can work together to achieve superior performance results.

The L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Development Model.

The L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Development Model embodies a comprehensive review and application of leader perspectives and behaviors.  It’s letters signify the following:

L–Leadership, E–Ethics, A–Alignment, D–Decision Making, E–Engagement, R–Resilience, and S-Stewardship.

Each of these dimensions of the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model are explored in depth and applied contextually by participants.  If you desire, I can break out any of these seven dimensions of leadership into a stand-alone training session.

The “Rosetta Stone” of Leadership.

Learn and apply fundamental concepts of leadership that gives participants the “lenses” through which all other leadership-related actions can be fully understood.

Situational Leadership II©.

Participants acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively apply all the dimensions of Situational Leadership II©.  This very popular approach, developed by Ken Blanchard to increase productivity and competence in individuals and teams, is utilized by organizations worldwide.

How (Un) Ethical are You?

Through knowledge, introspection, and application, participants are challenged to consider their own ethical standards and behavior.  I use my “3 P’s” (Process, Perspective, and Person) approach to help leaders at all levels become better ethical decision-makers.

Decision Making:  It’s More Than You Think it is.

We all make decisions each day.  They often define who we are, not only as leaders at work, but in all of life circumstances.  In this training, participants will learn how to improve the quality of decisions that they make, particularly those that are novel, complex and strategic in nature. We examine the factors that can derail the decision making process and focus on ways to mitigate their effect.  In addition, emphasis is placed on the successful implementation of decisions, often the Achilles heel of effective decision making.
