KLG Consultants, LLC delivers Proven Training and Development Programs!

Our proven training programs – customized and delivered at your facility.

Leadership and Management Development
— Are your managers effectively planning, directing, motivating, and holding employees accountable for results? We offer in-house or “roundtable” supervisory, management and leadership training for all levels of management in the organization. Through the use of a one-on-one and group training process, we train and hold managers accountable for their personal leadership development and achievement of their organizational and departmental objectives. Training subjects include Strategic Planning, Motivating, Interviewing, Coaching, Change Management, Managing Tasks and Responsibilities, Delegating, Dealing with Difficult Employees, Holding People Accountable, etc.

Teamwork: Builders and Blockers
— Are team members aligned and rowing in the right direction? Are team members accountable for results? We offer team development by addressing the blockers or builders to team success. Teams that don’t TRUST one another will not effectively engage in unfiltered debate that effectively leads to successful COMMUNICATION. When issues that arise and conflict is not addressed, team members are unable to “buy-in” to the teams direction thus resulting in a lack of team ACCOUNTABILITY. Without accountability systems in place, teams will often place blame on others or use excuses to avoid be responsible for expected outcomes. This leads to poor EXECUTION which requires understanding roles and responsibilities, goals and priorities, and performance management. (Teamwork - builders and blockers program outline and modules)

Sales Development
— Are your salespeople generating enough new business as well as growing the current client base? We offer sales productivity improvement by managing your sales team through a process of developing their annual sales plan, identifying current attitudes that block sales success, measuring and monitoring their sales ratios, time and territory management skills, creative prospecting techniques, consultative presentation and closing skills, and building client relationships.

CEO Roundtables
— Sometimes the best advice comes from your peers! The Leadership Edge is a unique monthly roundtable meeting designed for CEO’s and Business Owners who want to strengthen themselves as the leader in their company and industry. Unlike other CEO roundtables, the Leadership Edge is a development program with specific leadership training and problem solving around executive-level issues.

Professional Development Roundtables
— Do you have just a few managers to develop? Would you like to assess our leadership training process and program before bringing us in-house to work with other managers? We offer the Leadership Edge training program at our training facility. It is open to only 10 managers and includes one-on-one coaching and group training for improved learning and accountability. Topics include motivating, planning, time and project management, directing, coaching, and managing change.

What is Employee Coaching?

Coaching & Feedback

In today’s economy, it’s critical to get the most productivity from every employee. Companies must be certain that every employee performs to the best of their ability and delivers significant value to the organization. But a wise individual once said: People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be--not what you nag them to be. That simple sentence summarizes the primary purpose of employee coaching.

Coaching is the ongoing process of helping people fulfill their responsibilities and achieve results. As such, it is an inseparable part of day-to-day, face-to-face leadership. Coaching goes well beyond straightforward instruction. While it does address task outcomes and how to achieve them, it also deals with attitudes, discipline, morale, ethics and sometimes career development. KLG coaches are effective trainers, mentors, counselors, evaluators, resource people, and troubleshooters.

KLG coaching and feedback solutions provide actionable advice to help managers and organizations to:

  • Help people be more effective and productive than they are today. Drive the overall performance of your organization by coaching employees to developing the skills they need to be better at what they do.
  • Effectively communicate with each employee. Learn how to communicate with your employees – it increases morale and productivity.
  • Learn how to handle manager/employee conflicts. Prevent unnecessary turnover due to poor manager-employee relationships.
  • Build effective relationships with remote employees. Manage employees in any location and move beyond the face-to-face way of getting to know them.
  • Redeploy talent when your business significantly changes. Understand the core characteristics of employees so that you know where they fit within the organization, even in times of change.
  • Motivate people to do what you need them to do. Learn how to make your employees productive and keep them motivated to do their very best.
  • Learn how to handle diverse manager/employee dynamics. Empower employees and managers to learn from each other and use their differences to propel the team to success.

In addition to managing talent, organizations need to be able to handle conflict. Organization restructuring brings about change that brings about stress and conflict. It’s important for managers to be able to effectively lead their team through challenging and turbulent times. Being able to predict how each employee will respond to stress and conflict is the key to managing change smoothly.

KLG's solutions provide managers a “user guide” for each employee to help identify the best way to manage them in times of stress and conflict. This insight gives managers the ability to provide strong leadership so that they can maintain or increase employee productivity and retain key employees.
