Four years ago, Paladin began our hugely successful Junior Management Training Program and, this year, is our inaugural Enhanced Management Training Program - the first of many.
Last week, managers from across the country were brought to Paladin Head Office in Vancouver for our first ever three-day Enhanced Management Training Program, designed to help them get to the next level in their burgeoning security careers.
Chief Operations Officer Leo Knight noted that this is just the latest in Paladin's ongoing initiatives to invest in our people and aid them in getting the most out of their work.
"We cannot rest on our laurels," said Knight. "Or be happy with where we are. As leaders in our industry, we must constantly strive to come up with new and innovative ways to make our people better which, ultimately, allows us to offer a better service to our clients."
The program allowed many members of Paladin's senior management team to present their ideas on best management practices; enabling them to give our eager younger staff the benefit of their wealth of experience and expertise.
Don MacAlister, Vice President of Healthcare & Institutional Security, said he was honoured to be able to participate and impart his knowledge; “I thoroughly enjoyed the time I got to spend with the EMTP group in the session on Leading Teams. A high-functioning group, the level of discussion we were able to engage in was dynamic and focused. As our business grows across the country, it’s terrific to experience the quality and calibre of the leaders who will help us continue to be successful.”
One of the participants, Central Alberta Client Service Manager (CSM) Michael Cooper, commented; "This training was so beneficial, informative and inspiring. I left Vancouver with a fire within me, and even more passion and enthusiasm to bring back to our Paladin family nationwide, to keep us at number one."
"EMTP was awesome from a networking aspect, and I now have an extended network of friends and colleagues across the country that I can source for all of my business needs," added Vancouver CSM Courtenay Mitchell, CAHSO. "The training was geared towards 'big picture thinking,' so I have a much better understanding of the skill sets required at the Branch Head / Director level."
"It gave us a great venue to share ideas among colleagues from all of our different branches, and it was awe-inspiring to learn first-hand from our experienced executive management team. Most importantly for me," ended Toronto CSM Amrinder Dhinsa. "It was refreshing to see how The Paladin Difference has transcended our teams across Canada. Thanks for the opportunity!"
This week, senior management will meet to debrief and analyze what they learned after the inaugural EMTP, to make the next sessions - scheduled already for June and September - even better.
