Leadership Development

Someone said people join organizations, but leave leaders. Ineffective leadership is a key cause of turnover and performance problems.

Effective leaders have a tool kit of models and skills to use for steering their organizations and connecting with their staff - instilling loyalty and dedication resulting in individuals who routinely go the "extra mile".
We will work with you and your organization to identify the needs and develop a process or program to provide you with the tools you need to reach your desired outcomes.

Leadership development program for you and your leaders

Leaders will complete a comprehensive Leadership Development Needs Survey to determine their needs for development. The survey is completed by the actual participant, as well as the participants' leader to gain both views on what is important to their work and where they need development. This ensures you are getting a program to meet the real needs of your group in your organization. We will then develop a program based on the actual needs of your specific group.

Executive / Leadership Coaching

You may be a leader who has taken a lot of management and leadership training, and want more that the classroom can offer. You are successful, but know there is another level of success for you; or you could use a sounding board or objective thinking partner when dealing with everyday challenges. Coaching uses day to day challenges as opportunities for learning, integrating leadership models and skills along with life experience.

Public Seminars

Our principal, Heather Erhard, offers public seminars for leadership development through numerous organizations in Manitoba, for example the Manitoba Quality Network (QNET),;

Erhard Associates has also facilitated the Leading and Managing in the Non-Profit Sector workshop, for Executive Directors and Senior Managers of non-profit organizations nationally and internationally for over 20 years. The program is updated yearly through the Non-Profit Management Development Needs survey, which identifies the needs of the actual program participants. The program is ever evolving in response to the changing needs of the non-profit community.
