Best in the Biz Awards: Best Leadership Program

Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2023, 1:00 pm CT

According to a recent BizLibrary survey, the TOP business challenge organizations face is underdeveloped leadership, and 65% of organizations surveyed want to focus on leadership training above anything else.  

Leadership training is at the top of almost every training and development professional’s priority list because they know how important it is to empower their people to reach the next summit of their career. Additionally, it helps with identifying hi-potentials for people management positions, improves the skills of existing leaders, and prepares employees for senior leadership opportunities. When programs like these are in place, it leads to more internal promotions, better productivity, and less turnover. 

BizLibrary is thrilled to be joined by Milo’s Tea Company, our Best in the Biz: Best Leadership Program award winner, to discuss how their program equipped leaders with the resources and support needed to implement effective and impactful coaching techniques and to elevate their leadership impact. By utilizing microlearning sessions and “Coaching Circles,” they have been able to focus on building a peer-elevated community of support for all leaders in the program.   

Join Adam Roderick, Manager of Learning and Development at Milo’s Tea Company, as he walks us through:  

  • How Milo’s Tea Company determined the growing need for leadership development 
  • How they gained leadership buy-in  
  • The process of building and launching the program  
  • Key components to measuring success  
  • Challenges they overcame and advice for anyone trying to launch a similar program
