Tuesday, 25 July 2017 00:51 -     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

A unique training and development program themed as ‘Building Skills: Overcoming Challenges: Transforming the Future’ has been designed and will be launched on 28 July, from 9 a.m. for a full day, at Cinnamon Lakeside, by the newly initiated corporate entity, Spectrum Trainers & Corporate Consultants.

The new company is dedicated to nurturing, transforming and empowering aspiring executives and enterprises to achieve sustainable performance excellence.

The first training program has been structured after conducting research amongst young corporate executives, to identify what development support is needed by them, to strengthen their own career development and growth. The thinking was based on identifying specific needs of these young assets, who will be the future leaders of corporate Sri Lanka.

This program has accordingly been designed to be an exclusive empowerment, coaching and mentoring program, that will inspire participants to further sharpen practical leadership and communication skills. It has been structured with a mentoring and peer review aspect being incorporated, to ensure that the Training and development is not restricted to the day of the programme; but that it has a unique, on-going developmental and follow up mentoring aspect that is built in. The program on 28 July and the ones to follow, are specifically aimed at motivating and empowering team leaders and executives to make a greater contribution to the success of their corporate work places, as well as facilitate their own personal career growth.

Spectrum has brought together a varied mix of resource personnel to deliver the first of a series of programs that will be conducted over the next few months.
