Building vital leadership and management training for civil servants in the State of Vermont.

The Challenge

The State of Vermont is dedicated to developing strong leaders, managers and supervisors to successfully serve state residents. They asked 4Forward to develop courses to fill gaps in their leadership and management training curriculum.

4Forward had strong awareness of the issues we were dealing with and truly made us feel understood. As excellent listeners, they were able to offer leadership training that matched our needs, and delivered resource material that was quite powerful.

The Process

We researched, designed and developed practical, highly interactive one-day leadership and management training workshops covering the following topics:

  • How to Mentor
  • Managing Change
  • Leadership Communication
  • Effective Delegation
  • Collaborative Leadership
  • Emotional Intelligence

For each workshop, we created a facilitator guide, participant materials and PowerPoint presentation.

To ensure the subject matter sticks with learners, we used a variety of instructional methods, including:

  • Assessments
  • Videos
  • Scenarios
  • Case-based simulations
  • Carousels
  • Application of real-world challenges

The Result

A robust and practical leadership and management training package that empowers the State of Vermont to build a more capable workforce and better serve their citizens.
