Leadership Through People Skills

Help new and experienced leaders build their interpersonal skills to solve business issues.

For more than 50 years, Psychological Associates has taught Q4 leadership skills to generations of leaders in our Leadership Through People Skills workshop. Now, it’s time for next-generation leadership development.

To enhance the leadership learning experience, we’re splitting Q4 leadership development into two new learning solutions, available in 2020. Q4 leadership skills will continue to increase managerial effectiveness and transform organizations, with a new focus on individual job level that will increase personal relevancy for learners.

Q4 Leadership: The People Skills Advantage

Designed for C-level leaders, Vice Presidents, and General Managers, Q4 Leadership: The People Skills Advantage focuses on peer interactions and managing up. The intensive, comprehensive 3-day program combines discussion and role-plays to help participants gain self-awareness and skills to engage, involve, and influence others.

The Q4 Edge

In The Q4 Edge, those new to leadership roles, along with front-line managers, team leads, project managers, and supervisors gain competence and confidence in the foundational leadership skills they need to help engage, challenge, motivate, and involve their people. The program combines e-learning modules with a one-day workshop that allows leaders to practice their newly learned Q4 skills in a guided setting.

Both programs build on the legacy of our Leadership Through People Skills workshop, with enhanced learning design and more focused video examples. And both are available in 2020, either as a Public Program offering or an in-house session tailored to your organization.

“Psychological Associates is our “go to company” when we vet employee candidates, implement employee engagement surveys and conduct individual employee coaching sessions.  They greatly increase our ability to recruit and manage our most costly and also greatest asset … our employees.  We would find it hard to operate as effectively and confidently without Psychological Associate’s valued support and direction.”

- Bob Franceshelli, Chief Executive Officer, Pritikin
“With Psychological Associates, we receive a complete solution. It’s a thorough assessment combined with feedback, action planning and coaching. We’re also enhancing our skill building efforts through the courses that Psychological Associates developed.”
- Bill Pitchford, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Wabash National Corporation

“The quality of Psychological Associates reports…in general, they have quite good insights into the people taking the tests. Another one is that, by virtue of having worked with us for years, they know us fairly well. As a result, they are able to do some successful matching between candidates and the company.”

- Peter Allen, Managing Director, Agoda

“We actually sought Psychological Associates out when we recognized that we had a need for higher level resources in our leadership development program… They came back with a very clear and concise approach to helping us with our leadership development program.”
