BeyondTheTheory has applied its leadership development approach to a series of development programs. Each tackles the unique challenges associated with different organisational roles.

For more specific information about each development program, please see below:
Individual Contributor Development program
True leaders don't necessarily have managerial titles, but generate a great deal of impact and make major contributions. Since these individual contributors achieve nearly everything through influence, they need to be great communicators and team players. However, this critical pool of talent is often forgotten when it comes to leadership development. In doing so, organisations are missing the opportunity to mobilise these informal leaders, increase their impact and influence, and prepare them for future managerial positions. BeyondTheTheory’s Individual Contributor Development Program is designed to equip these professionals and high-potentials with the right mix of leadership competencies to ensure they continue making a major impact on your organisation.
First-time Manager Development Program
Promoting high potentials into their first-line management role is essential for strengthening your talent pipeline. However, the transition to a leadership role is a significant step and relies on the individual developing, and knowing how to use, a whole new set of skills and behaviours. BeyondTheTheory’s First-time Manager Development Program is designed to help your first-time managers make a successful transition into their first leadership role.
Middle Manager Development Program
In today’s tough economic climate, the success of an organisation depends on a strong leadership pipeline of middle managers able to convert strategy into tangible results. To achieve this, they must engage and motivate their teams, align their priorities, drive efficiency and productivity, and lead through the uncertainty of constant change. BeyondTheTheory’s Middle Manager Development Program is designed to equip your middle managers with the right balance of leadership competencies to achieve these goals successfully.
Senior Leader Development Program
Advancing from an operational to a strategic level is one of the most challenging and critical transitions a senior leader can make. Instead of managing day-to-day business operations, a variety of new strategic roles are necessary to achieve long-term business success – driving profitable growth, increasing market share, managing organisational change, and so on. However, reports suggest that up to 40% of senior leaders fail in the first 18 months on the job. BeyondTheTheory’s Senior Leader Development Program offers strategic insight, as well as the development of the associated leadership competencies, required for the roles that leaders need to assume at the senior level.
Team Effectiveness development Program
Organisational effectiveness often depends on the ability of its leadership teams to create an effective work climate – amongst themselves and within their respective business units. This ensures that people trust one another, are engaged, aligned and productive, and remain agile and resilient as they tackle business challenges and adapt to changes. BeyondTheTheory’s Team Effectiveness Development Program is designed to identify opportunities and obstacles for optimal group performance, and equip your team members with the right mix of leadership competencies for effective team performance.
BeyondTheTheory is also able to deliver programs for specific professions within an organisation. As an example, the following have been created for roles within the professional sales environment:
SALES PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Achieving profitable revenue targets depends on the ability of your sales professionals to look past short-term transactions and establish genuine long-term client relationships. To achieve this, they must have credible trust-based conversations with their customers, understand their needs and empathise with their concerns, and provide them with valuable services and solutions. BeyondTheTheory’s Sales Professional Development Program is designed to ensure your sales professionals possess the personal and relational competencies required for sales success.
SALES MANAGER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Because selling is so critical to business success, organisations are demanding more and more insight and control on revenue-generating activities. This puts increasing pressure on sales managers to support, develop and engage their employees, lead them and hold them accountable, instil a customer-centric climate amongst their team, and act as gatekeepers of profitable growth within the organisation. BeyondTheTheory’s Sales Manager Development Program is designed to ensure your sales managers possess the leadership competencies required to support, develop and engage their team.
