Are you managing constant change and challenges? Has your organization’s strategy changed? The responsibilities of leaders expand, but expectations remain at least as high as before.
The success of an organization is grounded in good leadership, from vision to implementation. Results and motivation levels are either developed with wise leadership or crumble in the wake of leadership problems.
Best results are achieved when the management focuses also on the human aspect. Wise leadership optimizes the efficiency, well-being, and job satisfaction of employees by taking into account their strengths.
Developing leadership is a continuous process. We tend to say that leadership starts with observations and self-reflection. In our Realized® training, we train you to lead people towards a strong, goal-driven mindset and result. Engage your people, make them ready for change, and make them into a positive force that drives the organization forward. This makes implementation of strategies, decision making, and performance management effortless.
Our Realized® Leadership trainings offer practical tools for a solution-oriented method to defuse difficult situations. Enhance your leadership skills, interaction skills, and leadership communication.
We believe that profound learning in these topics occurs only by learning from experience, interaction, and practice. That is why Completo’s Realized® Leadership training is based on practicing and learning together.

This Performance Management Training has been created to answer the demand for practical measures of guiding performance in the everyday work of employees and how to tackle underachievement. According to our experience, organizations usually have set out principles of performance management, but the understanding of how to implement them in practice is lacking.
Performance management means directing employees to work in a goal-directed way, and to prioritize, organize, and schedule their work correctly. Performance management needs to be frequent and the manager needs to be determined.
This Performance Management Training gives you the skills to enable your subordinates to reach their best by knowing exactly what is expected of them. We will learn the best practices for goal-setting and methods of follow-up. By utilizing DISC, we will find out the best ways to motivate different subordinates to work in a goal-directed manner. A transparent ruleset and clear personal goals also increase job satisfaction.
A failure in performance management usually leads into underachievement. It usually happens unnoticed, until intervention becomes very difficult. This training gives you practical ways to address underachievement in a constructive and motivating manner. You will be able to fix underachievement and restore the employee’s performance, goal-driven attitude, motivation, and trust in the organization and the manager.

The human aspect in change situations is both the greatest strength and the greatest decelerator. When changes are implemented, the facts are usually provided, but they are not made concrete on the level of tasks and everyday functions. This does not increase awareness of the need to personally learn new abilities or skills, which is a critical factor if changes are to succeed.
The leadership training will provide you with the means to drive, manage, and implement change. We will especially focus on the role of communication in change management: increasing employee involvement, simplifying participation, increasing commitment, and helping employees let go of old working habits and take responsibility of implementing change in their own role and tasks.
We will train you to recognize and defuse negative phenomena in the change process, change traps. These are phenomena that seldom are recognized in the hubbub of change, but which, at their worst, may cause the entire organization to grind to a halt. Often changes are implemented by pushing them through the organization without listening for a response. However, by investing in understanding and defusing these change traps, the change stays on schedule easier and even large changes can be implemented with less adverse effects.
The change management training will also provide you with skills to best use change agents to manage and implement change. Change agents are key persons, motivated to implement the changes on all levels of the organization. Their role in clarifying the facts and details of the change as well as positively affecting the attitudes of people is vital.

5. Strategic Management – From Vision to Implementation
A twofold training for Top Management and Management Groups in visionary thinking and strategy building as well as the implementation of strategy. We will emphasize the parts that best serve your development needs.
Strategy and Vision
The world changes constantly and relying on past data makes you vulnerable. Leaders should mainly look ahead, listen for quiet signals, and focus on predicting the future. In addition to solid business skills, the most successful leaders have an excellent intuition that helps them quickly interpret facts and complements their understanding of industry movements.
In this Strategic Leadership Training we will carry out a strategic process to clarify the goals, vision, and mission of your organization. We develop your strategic and visionary thinking. We create efficient practices to enable leaders on an individual level and together as a Management Group to create new possibilities and direction for the organization.
Implementation of Strategy
According to management research, over 70 % of strategies fail to produce desired results because of insufficient implementation. The responsibility of implementation lies with the top and middle management. A strategic change can be realized only if everyone understands their part in the big picture.
In this Strategic Management Training we focus on how to implement and communicate the desired strategic big picture so that it will direct everyone’s behavior by clarifying goals and helping reach them. We build a framework for the development of a business leadership action plan, including the methods of communication, motivation, and follow-up.
We often see in our client organizations just how critical successful implementation really is and that it is seldom carried out with enough care. Informing is only the very beginning of implementation. After that we need to systematically convert the strategy into practical objectives for each organizational level. In the Strategic Management Training, we learn a Strategic Implementation Model, which increases motivation, efficiency, and commitment.
