Customizable & Targeted
The reality is that most leaders in organizations today have been promoted based primarily on their technical skills, with little attention given to their leadership skills. Leadership Development Training can fill the leadership skill gaps in your company or organization through customized training by our professional facilitator.
Dennis Cooley is a Leadership Training Facilitator in the Business and Industry Services Department at Southwest Wisconsin Technical College. He is certified to teach DISC and Strengths Finder courses. Dennis brings an energetic and inclusive approach to his classroom, whether that is at your location, or at our main campus or outreach locations.
Dennis is dedicated to making learning fun and engaging and producing measurable results to improve the bottom line for the organizations he works with.
Our Leadership Training can be categorized into three main topics: Leadership Academies, Customized Workshops, and Workplace Enhancement. These three areas of training lead to better personnel, better working teams, and a more cohesive workplace that makes your company stronger and able to take on and grow through challenges that may weaken or destroy your less able competitors.
Leadership requires a specific set of unique skills separate from technical work that an individual leads. Leaders truly are made, not born and leadership skills can be learned. Students will develop their leadership skills to compliment their technical skills in a relaxed and learner friendly workshop setting.
Building Extraordinarily Successful Teams (BEST) uses a combination of successful team building programs and tools such as Strengths Finder, Everything DiSC and the 5 Behaviors of Cohesive Teams in tandem with extended technical assistance in the form of executive and leadership coaching.
The purpose of Community Leadership is to work together in building strong, thriving, and prosperous communities in southwest Wisconsin. The mission of Charger Community Builders is simple; Everyone a Learner, Everyone a Teacher, Everyone a Leader.
