The main objective of executive development is to develop the potential of managers, in order to meet the challenges and objectives of their companies. At the beginning of the process, the “manager at his best” is defined in accordance with the company’s approach and the managerial level. The ultimate goal of the management development program is to bridge the gap between the current position of the participating managers and their managerial vision and duties within the organization.
The program is established through work integrating five types of perceptions: role perception, awareness, developing a sense of capability, knowledge and expertise. This combination assists in assimilating the contents studied and their implementation at work.
Role Perception of “Manager at His Best”
The organization and the participants of the group formulate the manner in which they perceive the role of the manager, perception of authority, and responsibility.
The program's approach is that the key to personal development is the ability to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of personality. This includes observing all the unseen processes to expand personal awareness and decrease blind spots.
Developing a Sense of Capability
Organizational, managerial, and psychological experience shows that employees in general and managers in particular evolve through the experience of success. The Executive Development program allows managers to experience success, leading them to succeed in their management positions.
The program offers the participants knowledge acquired by research, theory, and managerial experience - both from the organizational system and the instructor’s experience. This knowledge is an additional level in the process of the manager’s development and in many cases, the basis for acquiring managerial skills.
The participants of the management development program will acquire and practice diverse managerial skills. The program will provide a toolbox for the manager, and thus enabling him to effectively cope with the challenges and tasks ahead.
This program places the manager in the center, including the psychological processes that he goes through and deals with. The group has a substantial role in the program. The group is the association in the management development program. According to this approach, processes that happen in the group also take place in real life situations, so their analysis constitutes the basis for personal development.
The Executive Development begins with analysis which goal is to identify the “manager at his best” according to the perceptions of the organization. The preliminary analysis raises a number of common topics on which the Executive Development program focuses. The topics delivered in the program are, as mentioned, those relevant for the specific organization.
