Designing and delivering leadership skills training uniquely crafted for your organization and people

Merge’s professional practice is focused entirely on turning managers into leaders; on helping great people become exceptional leaders by turning people power into real and tangible results.

Merge knows that the best way to develop skills in your leaders is to craft a training program that is uniquely designed to meet the needs of your organization and your people.

What will be included in a leadership training program?

In any training design, there are many elements to choose from, and Merge will work closely with you to determine your specific needs and establish objectives that are relevant and meaningful to you. Every single program Merge does is custom-designed but, based on your requirements, it will include concepts and practical tools to help leaders deal with just about any responsibility or situation that can come up on any given day on the job. While not an exhaustive catalogue, this list of Possible Leadership Training Topics can give you an idea of the breadth and depth of assistance Merge can provide.

Your final outcome could be a one-time training event or a series of graduated learning programs; it could involve online or distance-learning modules; it could contain audio or video components, it could incorporate the use of social media or “virtual study groups”; it could even include peer support or one-on-one mentoring. Whatever it is, it will be uniquely “you”, and Merge will expertly craft and deliver what you need to turn your managers into leaders and your people power into results.

Whether it is live training, virtual distance learning, or curriculum development, Merge’s programs are research-based and content-rich – she takes proven academic research, makes it relevant to your organization and your challenges, combines it with time-tested strategies and then delivers the tools, solutions and mindsets your managers need for long-term leadership success. Her contagious enthusiasm turns even the most passive listeners into participants! If your people are tired of “fluff”, then Merge represents the solid alternative: enduring and compelling content and tools that actually work, delivered in an engaging style, tempered with humor and realism.
