In designing and managing our skills and attitude development programs we place emphasis on that the lessons learnt from the training should be readily applicable in real life.
This is why we:
- establish close cooperation with the executives of participants, as well as our clients’ HR specialists in the course of developing our training – we never use “ready-to-eat” trainings;
- break development programs down into modules, that the realization of tasks defined by participants, trying out specific behaviors as well as the follow-up of these modules at the following session could happen;
- conduct role plays based on situations provided by participants, and we process actual situations;
- build on the experience we have gained from more than one thousand trainings we have held.
Our array of trainings is enriched by executive and collegial series trainings assisting culture change, by the localization and implementation of centrally developed programs for multinational organizations, by our long-term partnerships aiming at developing certain skills, as well as our trainings developed for unique situations and teams.
Skills Development Programs for Executives
Executive skills development is one of the strengths of Concordia. We have programs customized to the situation of chief executives, mid-level managers and beginner executives. For our approach to executive development as well as the most important topics within executive development, please see the menu item Management Development.
Skills Development Programs for Colleagues
No matter what kind of an organization we work with, analyzing its operation will always uncover – general or specific – problems, areas to develop, we meet all too often. We can help non-executive staff members perform their work in a more efficient way, communicate in a smoother and more effective way, and work more efficiently both alone and in groups. We can also promote trust and develop inter-departmental cooperation.
Training topics are always formulated on the basis of the preliminary assessment of needs in order to ensure that the program focuses on the fields most relevant for the participants.
In our tailor-made trainings we use the following themes most frequently
(in alphabetical order):
Assertiveness, Becoming a Coaching-type Manager, Beginner Manager, Body Language, Chairing a Meeting, Change Management – Change Leadership, Client-Centeredness and Client Management, Communication, Conflict Management, Cooperation, Creative Problem Solving, Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Empowerment, Delegation and Authorization, Presentation training, Leaders from Professionals, Motivation and Leadership, Negotiation Techniques, Performance Evaluation, Power-Influence-Management, Sales Training, Stress Management, Team Building, The Communicating Manager, The Developer Manager, The Exemplary Leader, Time Management.
We also deliver Train-the-Trainer Training and Workshop Facilitator Training on request
Please do not hesitate to contact our colleagues via email or phone.
"Considering the situation I am in now, I could not have picked a more useful training. What I really liked about it was the great balance between theory and practice, which meant I learnt about a good deal of specific things that I had not paid attention to, at least not consciously. I am definitely going to change that. I warmly recommend this training to everyone.
It was a well-constructed training with solid proportions giving ample emphasis to both a theoretical basis and practical applications. I think it would be useful for those about to embark on leadership tasks, as well as for practising leaders. The three days we spent together were also beneficial for team cohesion.
I have recently participated in Leadership Training 2 which was hugely helpful in developing my leadership thinking, and gave me ideas about how important it was to organise coaching meetings aimed at developing my colleagues, as well as about how to construct these meetings. My primary takeaway from the training was processing the opinion my subordinates formulated about my managerial efforts, as well as the coaching talk situational game, the learnings from which I can incorporate into actual trainings I conduct for my colleagues. I had a great time at the training, not the least because we had a highly competent and professional trainer (Mr. Tamás Szilágyi) who made sure everyone was actively participating all the time.
I learnt several techniques at Concordia’s training. The program has allowed me to be more assertive and more open when speaking to an audience. Me and my colleagues have gotten much closer together during the group activities, often our presence alone could help the others complete the tasks. The training has sown new seeds in me, awakened new thoughts and put me into a different perspective. All in all, the training provided by Tamás worked perfectly both as team building and as a personality building program. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone because you need to leave your comfort zone to allow for your personal development.
Feedback from Participants
As an HR specialist and supporter of participants in various career and talent management programs, over the last few years I have had the privilege of participating in several management trainings provided by Concordia, mostly facilitated by Tamás Szilágyi. It has been a highly positive experience going through the training with various groups, because while the topics were similar, the discussion of an abundance of real life situations and the sharing of personal experiences made these programs highly varied. At the beginning of our cooperation we developed the topics and structure of the trainings together with Tamás, and as feedback were received we kept fine tuning the content and the structure over the years. The flexibility and professionalism of Tamás made working together easy; he was very receptive to reactions from participants during the trainings. It is good to see how much of the learnings and lessons former participants have incorporated in their daily operations."
