At our clients, we promote strong leadership as a necessary asset to be successful as a digital company. And we walk the talk. Therefore we organize Personal Leadership trainings for our Sparkies.
A good example is the trainings trip for our middle management: from the 14th till the 17th of June, the middle management team of SparkOptimus gathered in Florence, Italy for the second edition of our Personal Leadership training. Led by a strong team of two coaches these four days were fully focused on the professional development of our team’s leadership by sharpening their management skills and developing a tailored personal plan.
Given the enthusiasm of the team which went through this program last year and had already shared some of their experiences, an energized team of Sparkies started off the first day, which revolved around one’s personal values and how these develop over time. “Mapping out and understanding your own values and thus the drivers of your behavior serves as the ground layer of systematically and rationally changing said behavior”, commented one of the participants. “These exercises on the first day have proven to be extremely useful to get the full potential out of the total training program”, he concluded.
The next step in the program was related to personal mastery, a most crucial skillset for people in a leadership position. “Understanding how one can control levels of stress and emotion will have an immense impact on how I can tackle difficult situations and still deliver highest-quality output for our clients given that you are most creative when you’re in a relaxed state of mind” shared a team member afterwards. To ensure the lasting impact and next steps of this retreat, the coaches helped our team on the final day to draw out a tailored development plan for each team member, existing of clearly defined and well-thought-out commitments to oneself.
