DDI Training

The success of a leadership development program depends on how leaders change afterward. Do they act differently? Do they have better conversations? Are their teams more engaged?

Partnering with the COS Training Resource Center, DDI’s Interaction Management® is a leadership development program built on science and measurement. And it’s proven to help managers think, act, and lead differently on the job.

DDI is a global leadership consulting firm celebrating 50 years of helping organizations hire, promote, and develop exceptional leaders. From first-time managers to C-suite executives, DDI and TRC’s commitment is to be by your side to help you make every moment of leadership count.

Our passion is to help leaders grow and deliver impact for a better future – for your company, for themselves, for their families, and for their communities. We do this at every level of the organization, from helping you recognize the first signs of leadership potential to putting your next CEO in place.

Two of our most recommended DDI trainings:

  1. Leading Self, Teams, and Results (approximately 17-20 hours but can be customized)

Leaders are the biggest driver of employee engagement. Help leaders make their teams feel valued, respected, and empowered. With the skills to create an inclusive environment and build trust, leaders can increase engagement levels and boost retention rates and business results.

  1. Core 480: Leadership Essentials (approximately11-13 hours but can be customized)

Build the essential skills that every leader needs to be successful in their everyday interactions. With only 480 minutes in each workday, leaders need the essential interpersonal skills to communicate with and coach their teams to success. The Core 480: Leadership Essentials program is a blended learning experience that builds a strong foundation for your managers.
