Hydrite Leadership Excellence
Impact Sales partnered with Hydrite to develop Hydrite University and Leadership Excellence. By addressing the performance gaps indicated in the annual employee opinion surveys, Impact Sales crafted a blended-learning curriculum directly aligned to fill the gaps. While it was important to address the right leadership and management communication topics, it was critical that the program was structured in a way to ensure long-term behavioral change and success. The program began with participation at the most senior level and trickled down throughout the organization enabling managers who had just completed the program to be coaches to their managers and supervisors as they continued the process. This program consisted of self-assessment, several in-person training modules, Reinforcement and practice e-learning modules, coaching and field application. Managers were not only evaluated on the knowledge acquired from participating in this program, but also how well they implemented the skills and demonstrated positive leadership with their teams.
