Agile Leaders

Less than 2/3’s of leaders in Fortune 100 companies surveyed in 2015 considered themselves to be agile leaders. Only 18% were highly confident they could meet the challenges of accelerating change and uncertainty.

TerconPartners has the knowledge, tools and experience to ensure that your company can confidently address the challenge of preparing new leaders to step up the plate – as well as the expertise to assess and coach current leaders to deliver breakthrough results.

TPI’s Whitepaper:
The New Business Imperative

TerconPartners offers programs to guide the development of agile leaders who learn quickly from their experiences and perform well under constantly changing circumstances.

Leader Learning Agility

What distinguishes an “Agile” Leader from Other Leaders? This state of the art program includes assessment, expert coaching and optional classroom training, and is based on the recently emerged science of Learning Agility.

“TerconPartners developed a program for our company to prepare a group of Senior Managers to lead a major change initiative. Participants found the Learning Agility Assessment and coaching sessions very helpful in understanding their strengths and development needs regarding leading change, dealing with resistance and maintaining employee trust of leadership.”

-VP Organizational Development, Regional Utility
