I'm looking to find examples of and ideas for some inspirational training for young execs. Please hope me.
I've been tasked with thinking through some ideas for a 2-3 day training session for young execs - the average age will be about 28-30.
It's an offsite. It is part personal development, part motivational and part reward. So it needs to be, if not always fun, then certainly inspiring and not just like their day to day jobs.
They normally work as marketing/marketing trend analysts - so their core competencies are analysing market data, forecasting what is going to happen, teasing out trends, doing presentations to clients on what they got etc.
There are some creative aspects to the job, but it's not a creative job as such. I'd like part of the training session to help them think more creatively, lateral think, problem solve, present more creatively, visually and effectively. But some concise training on general business strategy, as long as it was not dull, would be helpful too.
If I could line up people like Guy Kawasaki
and Atul Gawande
or Jesse Dee's "Steal this Presentation
" they'd fit the bill. Any ideas/examples of some inspirational training or trainable thought leadership is just what I'm looking for.
