Are you making the right investments in building your leaders? RG’s Development Assessment and Planning services enlighten leaders to their real development opportunities. Our development planning guide helps provide them with the right education, experience, exposure, and environmental solutions to better align and accelerate their performance.
We offer two types of assessments for development that can serve as a starting point for individual development planning. Equally, they can be combined with other development efforts to build a deeper awareness of strengths and weaknesses.
The Comprehensive Assessment for Development provides important development feedback, including strengths to leverage, behaviors to avoid, and skills to develop, as well as an action plan for individual Development.
Our approach is comprehensive and rigorous because leaders are the lifeblood of an organization. We use multiple testing and personality inventories, work-style interviews, and business simulation exercises to assess management and executive style and skills at all levels of the talent pipeline.
The Behavioral Assessment for Development is a powerful yet cost-effective tool for investing in your high performers, those in pivotal or critical roles, and leaders with “blind spots” in their capabilities. It helps both leaders in the middle of the organization and individual contributors grow and succeed in current and future roles.
It is a streamlined, virtual process that provides a basic development summary with a targeted Individual Action Plan. It serves as a good starting point for introducing development planning into the organization.
Each leadership development program we design is focused on helping leaders and their teams expand their capabilities, develop mastery in their domain, and tap into the mindset required for innovation, execution, and long-term organizational results.
RG’s Leadership Academy is specifically designed to accelerate the development of all the leaders in your organization to help improve overall business results, in both the short-term and long-term.

We approach learning differently than most by focusing on learning and development in the flow of work.
From our 5E development framework to customized learning paths to integrated microlearning, we deliver learning experiences that produce exceptional results.
All of our development and training programs are designed to achieve a Double ROI – Return on Individual and Return on Investment.
A Learning Path is a selection of courses tied together for learners to progress through, mastering a particular subject or program. You can enroll multiple users in multiple courses on our platform which saves you time and resources.
During Sequenced Learning Paths, the learner is taken through a Path that contains a number of courses in a particular order. After each course is completed by the learner, the next one opens up. This path offers easeful and sequential learning.
The admin has the power to grant access to the next course immediately or a set wait period can be implemented. For every Sequenced Learning Path, the learner must go through all courses in order for the path to be completed.
The Learner Choice is your more flexible option for a learning path. In this case, the learner has to complete a certain number of courses available within their own designated timeframe.
As an example, there may be one objective where the learner is given 6 courses to choose from, but he or she only needs to go through three in order to complete the goal. The learners will get to pick the three they want to do and the order in which they want to take them.
The learner choice approach allows greater personalization and specification for your path.
A key part of how we are different is our broad use of microlearning. Our development
framework goes way beyond the norm and uses a combination of nine different microlearning
strategies and techniques. Why so many? Simple. Everyone learns differently.
All of our training is designed with microlearning in mind. Everyone is busy. And time is very precious.
In fact, research shows most employees have less than 30 minutes per week to focus on training of any kind. That requires learning and content are flexible.
Microlearning allows learners to select and use training content most suited to their current needs on whatever device they choose. Training can be taken in small chunks between job duties, allowing learners to apply what they’ve learned immediately. Learners can consume only the content or modules that are relevant to their jobs and avoid those that don’t apply.
The learner-driven nature of microlearning maximizes learning flexibility, efficiency, effectiveness and engagement outcomes.
Our clients, big and small, have seen great results from embracing our micro training content. They love the quick and high impact results it provides in all kinds of corporate training scenarios. Most importantly, they see the difference in employee growth and performance.
Whole person approach to individual capability development uses multiple assessments and measurement methods to identify blind spots and gaps.
All learning programs tied to five-level Strategic Training Needs Analysis.
Rotational programs in adjacent functions and roles.
Formal or informal programs that leverage coaches, mentors and/or advisors.
Education, experience, and exposure support strategy and context of the role.
