Executive Leadership Development

Sir - I just wanted to send you a quick note regarding this week's BDE/BN CDR leader development training. BLUF: a great investment of time and money as the training hit a home run in multiple areas. The opportunity to think and reflect, as well as gain additional self-awareness skills and insights, proved extremely valuable to all. Hats off to the entire Innolect team for their professionalism, and to the G5 staff for planning and executing the event. I truly believe the Civilian Staff and the CSMs are going to benefit from the training in the coming months, and hopefully this becomes an annual event for the leadership. By far one of the most useful events I have participated in with regard to leadership development.

- COL T.J. Sheehan, Colonel US Army

I wanted to provide a few feedback points on the three-day session with Innolect. BLUF: it was a phenomenal three days; admittedly, there is a little skepticism going into these type of events, but having seen this executed with True Growth, Kansas Univ. and a few others; Innolect does a tremendous job. The key focus areas of Transforming Self, Others and Impacting your organization was well balanced with the practical events used to facilitate over the course of the event; golf, equine and coaching were superb. There were a great deal of takeaways that can be immediately applied from the overall perspective: "Zoom" (zooming in our out), Leadership Maturity Profiles (MAP) which helps leaders understand their stage of adult development, listening skills and connecting with others in order to better influence. This will pay huge dividends over time (in my opinion) given the current course to extend to civilians and CSMs. Key is understanding Transformation (changing something or someone to the point "it can't be walked back") and how to walk that path in terms of self, others and an organization was one of my biggest takeaways.

This was a very rewarding training with lots of creative interaction. It's one of the most impactful trainings that I have ever attended.

I just wanted to say thanks for the training. It was put together well and the facilitators did an outstanding job. I really enjoyed the staff interaction and really got to know people on a different level than work. Great Job!

Innolect helped me be a better listener, growing and developing into a more confident leader.  They helped me look at the talent in the company, whether we have the right people in the right jobs and to celebrate our successes.   They have been extremely supportive of us, both personally as well as professionally, great at helping us make better decisions, and great at reminding us to focus on strategy rather than being stuck in the tactics.  The off-site training and development excursions couldn’t have been more fantastic.

- A. Bernal, Group President

All of our talks about leadership certainly paid off,… I am happy to say that I often use many of the tactics you spoke about.  I passed along storytelling as a way of leading to one of my unit managers who successfully transitioned in to a Site Executive role – she was very appreciative!  Although our time together was brief, you made a lasting impact on my style of leadership.  I can’t thank you enough for the time, advice and wonderful ideas.  If it sways you one way or another, you certainly had an impact on me and my career.

- J. Ely, Vice President

MANY thanks for your facilitation and expertise during yesterday’s meeting, I strongly believe the team is getting really good and you have had a big role in that. I am very much looking forward to working with you again very soon.

- A. Aldaz, Global Director

Innolect provided a platform from which my team began to operate… They set the stage on how we would deal with conflict resolution and setting goals.  Otherwise, we would have stayed at comfort level… I will say that this is the first time that I have worked with consultants who engage authentically,… gained the trust of the team and took personal interest in the outcome.

Innolect has developed, organized and hosted numerous workshops and conferences for my teams.  In every instance, the event has not only met my objectives, but often exceeded them.  Moreover, the Innolect staff is extremely outgoing, professional, creative and engaging… and worked collaboratively with my staff and me to ensure delivery of high-quality, meaningful training materials and workshop aids.

- Vice President, Licensing and Development
Pharmaceuticals

The process has allowed us to focus more specifically on the individual candidate and his/her “real skills” and areas where improvement can be focused. In one particular case, it was a key validating point for us that said we should take caution in hiring a very senior level candidate for our organization. Bottom line….the process is a key ingredient for us as we move forward with the goal of attracting and developing our employees at the director and above level.

Critical Meeting Design and Facilitation

This was by far the best company meeting I have ever been to.  What I liked best was NOT having planted questions!  Doing it with table members collaborating produced good questions without the spotlight turned on anyone. It kept it genuine. With our usual style of meeting (officials telling employees) I recognize that we often felt the need to prime the pump, but that produces a certain cynicism about whether all the questions are planted… and designed to elicit a certain answer….so thank you and the team for not going down that old, rutted road.  Outstanding job, well done.

Your presentation today was fabulous!  Thanks so much for helping our leaders get more connected with listening styles, listening skills and more.  I especially enjoyed the piece about Jesus as a listener, which means so much to us as a faith-based organization. It was great meeting you, and I hope our paths cross again!

- L. Myer, Patient Experience

You helped us take the next step as we create a legacy of listening across our entire organization.  The insights you shared  will live forever through our leaders, our Associates, and the lives we touch as we bring healing to both the body and spirit of our patients and their families.
