1. Business Competency Development

At every stage in their career, managers and executives will need help to further develop their business skills—from practical abilities to soft skills like communication and attitude. Whether the employee’s team requires a new skill set or the company expects key competencies, perfecting these skills is a big boost to both the employee and their place of work.

REAL EXAMPLE

A business development team at an international life sciences company requires support in achieving better negotiation outcomes.


SOLUTIONS

McGill Executive Institute delivers its highly rated negotiating program, but customizes all the scenarios and business cases around the client’s real life issues to make the learning highly contextualized.


REAL EXAMPLE

An HR team at an international manufacturing firm needs to implement changes across the organization following a change in leadership.


SOLUTIONS

During a weeklong national management meeting, and following consultations with management, we put together and deliver a two-day leadership workshop on implementing change. This is followed up with small group coaching and consulting sessions on implementing a step-by-step plan.


REAL EXAMPLE

A high-profile executive needs coaching support to enhance his strategic leadership.


SOLUTIONS

We provide one-on-one coaching support off-site ensuring complete discretion, as confidentiality is part of our service agreement.


2. Succession Planning: High Performers and High Potential

When it comes to key periods of transition, successful companies understand the importance of succession planning and offering support to managers. McGill Executive Institute is highly experienced at fostering the success of employees who need to take the next step from “doing” to “managing” or must hone their business knowledge and vocabulary to make better decisions for the company.

REAL EXAMPLE

A resource company regularly promotes field labourers to the position of team leader or supervisor. These employees require practical, hands-on training to help them be successful in their new role.


SOLUTIONS

We offer a highly customized program that covers such topics as: effectively promoting safety, hiring processes, performance management, coaching, and day-to-day priority management. Following this initial success, the program is now offered across Canada whenever the company promotes a group of supervisors.


REAL EXAMPLE

A top telecommunications company has pinpointed a group of employees with high potential and wants to provide them with management training every year as part of their career progression.


SOLUTIONS

McGill Executive Institute develops and delivers a multi-modular program for these future leaders. The goal is to leverage their ability to think strategically, innovate, and implement change. The program is renewed every year and delivered to various divisions across Canada, evolving along with participants.


REAL EXAMPLE

Key talents at a technology company compete to participate in a customized McGill Mini-MBA program every year.


SOLUTIONS

We create an intensive learning experience similar to our Mini-MBA program. Here, select employees learn via customized business cases as well as an ‘impact’ project that is presented to their company’s internal executive panel. Several of the impact projects go on to be implemented internally.


3. Customized Support for Senior Leadership

McGill Executive Institute provides coaching, consulting, and development solutions to senior leadership, whose positions require an expert approach that’s credible and objective in order to address their company’s unique issues.

REAL EXAMPLE

A team of executives at a private technology company requires outside support to align ideas for future growth and come up with a process for mergers and acquisitions.


SOLUTIONS

We meet with each member of the team, then use the feedback to set up and facilitate a strategic off-site retreat to help align all members involved.


REAL EXAMPLE

An executive team of government deputy ministers and advisors attend an intensive leadership seminar at a different world-renowned university every year.


SOLUTIONS

This year, they select McGill Executive Institute to provide a premium, one-week experience on a range of leadership topics. We welcome the visiting group, from the Middle East, to our Montreal facilities, where we oversee all logistical details, from providing halal meals to setting up activities such as a parliamentary visit to Ottawa. Participant satisfaction ratings place our institute on par with Ivy League universities in the U.S. and top institutions across Europe. As a result, the organization continues to partner with our institute for other projects.


REAL EXAMPLE

A global bank headquartered in Europe brings its international executives together annually to prepare them for future CEO responsibilities.


SOLUTIONS

We deliver a customized development initiative, hosting delegates from all over the world at our downtown Montreal facility. All logistical details—from company visits to guest speakers, activities, and networking events—are put together by the Institute. The initiative is renewed every year in different worldwide locations.
