They are every talent development manager’s dream assignment—the ones that offers you a chance to work directly with senior executives. These opportunities can be launchpads for career success—or lead to misfires that can set you back. It often depends on how well you “speak executive.”

Fluency in the motivations and methods of the E-suite is an essential skill for people on the rise, but it’s not a natural one. Succeeding with Senior Management is the first and only workshop out there to address this critical skill gap.

Talent managers are innately learning-focused and behavior-oriented. In contrast, executives are more focused on overall business goals and frequently impatient with the details. That mental divide often leads to miscommunication that alienates executives and sabotages initiatives. That miscommunication is a deal-breaker when you get to the high visibility initiatives where you simply can’t succeed without engaging the support of senior management.

This workshop provides the practical guidelines every talent development manager needs by revealing the way executives think, and how their concerns about profit and customer experience provide direction for engaging with them. This is no easy task for talent managers who must expand their focus beyond learning objectives, content, and delivery strategy.

Succeeding with Senior Management uses stories from projects at Fortune 500 companies to bring essential lessons to life. 

This one-of-a-kind workshop presents game-changing principles and practical steps that every talent manager will find invaluable.

You’ll learn to: 

  • Think like an executive 
  • Prepare the leadership for success 
  • Build relationships and trust 
  • Master executive-effective communication 
  • Use executives’ deputies effectively 
  • Overcome cross-functional issues 
  • Navigate political waters 
  • And more...

Master the art of managing up and take your career to new heights.
