Leaders do not only need to have a very good understanding of their own areas in order to work effectively but the whole company and the processes within; moreover, they need to know what makes a given division, department and factory effective and productive and understand the relevant financial terms and facts.
IN THE COURSE OF THE TRAINING, leaders can become more knowledgeable and experienced whatever takes place in daily life at their workplace. However, they do not merely face their own positions but they can also encounter and gain hands-on experience of situations, opportunities and responsibilities of decision-makers holding positions above them in leadership hierarchy. Also, they often have to address, evaluate and effectively handle financial issues and be able to discuss or negotiate them with financial experts.
DURING THE COURSE PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE AN OVERVIEW OF ALL SIGNIFICANT KNOWLEDGE CONCERNING FINANCE, accounting and other business fundamentals that is required for making company operation effective and productive. In the knowledge of these, they analyze the thinking of a company, and then by means of a computer simulation, they gain hands-on experience of the significance and outcome of economic decisions. This company simulation program models adequately the operation of a production company, thus participants may try and put their knowledge into practice in a real-life framework.
By the end of the program participants will be able to understand, track, analyze and evaluate financial facts and effectively represent and justify their financial issues when dealing with other leaders, partners and even financial executives.
No specific financial background knowledge is necessary before the training.
"At the beginning of 2011 the already running leadership developmental program has come to a new station. By top managerial expectation and HR plans, the continuation of the training program could only be carried on if it was based on a thorough and professional diagnostics. It was the middle management of the company that was at the focal point of this diagnostics and training program: Assistant Manager, Manager and Senior Managers, in total 53 people. According to the diagnostic results and of the individual consultations, we have experienced professional implementation in both quality and quantity from the consultants of Develor. Our special needs and requests were incorporated into the processes, and it is safe to state that we received meaningful, useful and tangible information. The consultants from Develor have been customer oriented, flexible, and have maximally taken into account our requirements and expectation throughout developing the questionnaires, in the delivery phase and in the evaluation as well."
"A comprehensive development program of the company Develor Slovakia for the call centre operators had a positive impact on increasing the quality of the provided services and markedly strengthened the selling skills of our operators. The trainings tailored to the needs of our operators reflected concrete experience of trainers of the company Develor Slovakia in the insurance business and the telephone sales and services. We will gladly use their training and coaching services in future, as well."
"Develor offered us their services at the beginning of 2007. Based on the needs assessment they carried out; they 'tailormade a training program' for us. Their competitive advantage is their professionalism and personal maturity of their trainer, who could draw the attention of people thanks to real life examples. This is due to his several years’ experience in the FMCG environment. This was also his asset in answering all the specific questions and situations that our salespeople meet in their everyday work. Employees praised the trainings and positively evaluated the quality of the training as well as the facilitation of the trainer who was able to identify himself with their role. Personal typology training was interesting and impactful and it helped in improvement of communication on different levels in our company. ...
We are happy to use the services provided by Develor while reacting on our training needs in future."
We started our cooperation with DEVELOR in 2012 by implementing the Insights Discovery methodology in adidas Slovakia as part of the Franchise & Marketing team support project, which at that time was is a phase of transformation. In the following years our cooperation has gradually extended and the Insights Discovery typology has become part of our internal culture. During 3 years almost 70 employees of the region adidas Group CE East (SK, CZ, HU, PL) from different divisions - from back office to field sales - had participated in the Insights typology based programs. What we deem the greatest benefit is that we are all able to mutually identify gaps in communication and hence improve the speed and effectiveness of both individual and customer related interactions.
On behalf of adidas Group we can only recommend utilization of Insights Discovery and DEVELOR consultants to companies facing similar challenges - complexity of cooperation, integration of generation Y employees... etc. Not only that the tool is easily applicable on the job, but at the same time DEVELOR brings further insights how to make things better.
"Edenred has been working with Develor since June 2010 with training and development of the management team. Develor was selected due to a high expertise and professionalism approach and most important thanks to good listening of our needs and capacity to adapt their material to specificity of our company. Even if I had previous good experience from Insight Team Effectiveness in other country, Develor Slovakia has demonstrated his capacity to adapt his material and conduct of training sessions to our organization needs and help us in facing our different organizational challenges. We have pursued in 2011 the management training program defined in coordination with Develor with implementation of 360 degrees process what helped our organization in defining priorities and highlight individual manager development needs and help to build individual development program. In parallel to this process, during 2011 Develor conducted the sales training for our field sales team and a coaching training for sales managers. In the past we often conducted different kind of sales training courses but with little output and weak follow up action plan implemented. With the focus not just on sales training but with special training for sales manager based on the content of the field sales training and on feedback technique, field sales team feels more supported and sees the on-going consistency between the training plan and the regular feedback meeting organized with their managers. In parallel sales managers learnt technique how to debrief field sales team after sales visit and how to boost their sales team performance. Develor has demonstrated their high capacity to support our organization from both managerial and sales point of view."
"Develor has prepared for our retail people a complex development program. This program included Insights typology, customer orientation, sales skills and trainings for managers. We appreciate mainly the professional approach of the trainers who can attract the audience very naturally. Each training was prepared according to needs assessment of the group and according to the feedback from the previous trainings. The theory and practice in the training was well balanced, it wasn’t trainer’s monologue but very riveting and interactive dialogue with the participants. Basic knowledge and skills were practiced in case studies. Preparation, realization and also evaluation of each training was on high level. We are satisfied with communication and flexibility of cooperation with Develor."
