Leadership Development Training


Training Provided by Botting Leadership is Informative, Relevant, Lively, Interactive, and Fun!

Our inventory of Training Programs is aimed at all levels of Leadership Development – for young professionals and new managers, to mid-career professionals, to senior-level executives and Board members, to seasoned (but often struggling) business owners, to retiring executives or those engaged in significant life and career transitions. 

Dale uses humour, storytelling, facilitated insights, and hands-on participation among all workshop participants. Dale Botting was originally trained as an educator, so he knows the principles of effective pedagogy and the science of better learning. As a Certified Professional Coach, Dale also recognizes the importance of follow up and accountability from training events. It is not knowledge that increases the power within training participants, but the follow-up application of knowledge. 

Developing Leadership Skills

Each Training Session – whether in-house or delivered online – provides strategies and tactics to enthuse participants into a place of real action from their learning, to help make knowledge and skills really “stick” – long after each course or training event. In-house Leadership and Management Training programs can be delivered for the membership of entire Industry or Professional Associations, at Corporate Retreats, Conference Key Notes, or through regular in-house Lunch and Learns, Breakfast Briefings, Weekly Workshops, etc. 

One of the most popular, fastest-growing, and most effective forms of corporate Leadership Training is when Botting Leadership co-creates with senior leadership to custom design and deliver in-house “Leadership Academies”. These can be specifically tailored for your up and coming new managers, for certain categories of staff (e.g. Lead Hands or Foremen), and even for aging executives looking for career rejuvenation and renewal. Dale has established Leadership Clubs and In-house Leadership Academies for Hospitals, Research Institutes, Tribal Councils, Non-profit Organizations, Professional Service Firms, Manufacturers, and numerous other industries.
