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

"We commissioned Concordia to develop a program that would, instead of developing general leadership skills, refresh the existing leadership skills set of our team of leaders with decades of experience, and thereby endow them with a healthier leadership approach and skills that are also well suited for managing current leadership challenges. The 18-month program was made all the more exciting by the fact that the company was transferred to new ownership before the program was completed. Building on their existing leadership experience Concordia managed to fully involve our managers in the program, and to reform the corporate leadership credo by focusing on questions and issued already brought to the surface by the changing environment. The program left ample space for the topics and situations suggested by the participants, and Concordia managed to maintain all frameworks and close off individual sections as required by the overall objective, regardless of the degree of emotional involvement.
All in all it was a well thought out, comprehensive program. We would especially like to thank Mr. Tamás Szilágyi who, by virtue of his calmness and coaching techniques, sometimes provided support for the organisers, too."
