Charlotte, NC, United States, 2010/05/21 - New York Times best-selling author and Executive Coach, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, PhD, has partnered with Charlotte based WeSkill, to develop an innovative leadership program for business executives.
Recognized as one of the fifteen most influential business thinkers in the world by Forbes and The (London) Times, Marshall’s partnership with WeSkill, a local business education delivery firm, establishes Charlotte as a hub for progressive leadership instruction.
WeSkill’s innovative Leadership program is 6-months in the making with insight provided by another well known thought leader, partner and fellow mentee of Goldsmith, Dr. Frank Wagner, PhD. “In a wired, hectic, ‘never the right time to work for oneself’ society, improving leadership needs to be specific, time sensitive, measured and reinforced. The WeSkill platform is the only delivery platform that can honestly say it hits each of these conditions,” says Dr. Wagner. Dubbed, “The Federal Express of Feedback,” while working with senior executives at IDS American Express, Dr. Frank Wagner has helped leaders achieve positive, long-term change in behavior since 1976. Together, Wagner, Goldsmith and the WeSkill team including founders Brian Parsley and Michael Hernandez, have created an in-depth foundation in established leadership principles and practice. Their challenging program focuses on personal values and behaviors, immediate and continuing improvement of concepts and skills, added insight into the many elements of leadership, and the creation of a personal philosophy of leadership. Working in harmony with the busy lives of professionals, the program blends online courseware with peer reinforcement to facilitate a face-to-face exchange of ideas, experiences and visions.
“Choosing WeSkill as a partner in developing an innovative leadership program was a no brainer,” says Dr. Goldsmith. “They’re consistent in their ability to provide reliable, relatable and relevant processes for behavioral change at the executive level. It is my belief that our leadership program has been designed to help top executives achieve genuine success in their role as leaders."
Co-founder and COO of WeSkill, Michael Hernandez emphasizes, “Charlotte is the leader in knowledge capital. This program harvests the same type of “best in class” leadership principles and truly has the ability to make Charlotte what Silicon Valley is to technology. It’s an online tool that allows for 360 degree conversations between senior executives and their leadership teams – an interaction missing from today’s intense business climate."
Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, PhD and Dr. Frank Wagner, PhD are available for media interviews. To schedule, call 704-944-9400.
