Raytheon Develops True Performance Leadership
Our Leadership Development programs were designed to sharpen leadership skills across your organization and help catapult performance to the next level. We will engage with your leaders to collaboratively shape critical thinking skills and define visionary business models and strategies. Our innovative and customized approaches are tailored to align with your organization's key challenges.
Challenges occur even in the most effective of organizations. People and departments become caught up in prescribed roles that do not allow them to fully use their abilities. Data often comes in crushing waves rather than in a controlled flow that allows the right information to get to the right people at the right time. Your customer needs seem to change at an ever faster pace, far quicker than the ability to find and deploy new solutions.
To optimize the performance of your leaders, Raytheon Professional Services (RPS) experts will share best practices to:
- Elevate the skills of highly-effective leaders
- Create agile organizations
- Accelerate execution
- Develop high-performing teams in a climate of constant change and limited resources
Leadership skills are a competitive differentiator today for several reasons. The right leadership can take a business from survival mode to market leadership. The current business environment places extra strain on strong functional leaders as they transition to more strategic organizational roles, where ideas and initiatives emerge from numerous sources and success is equally about building support among a global group of peers as it is about obtaining buy-in from the C-suite.
As a global leader in learning solutions and consulting services, Raytheon Professional Services has helped leaders around the world improve every facet of their business. We will show you a proven methodology — The Fabric of Leadership — that allows a reader to quickly identify issues, use breakthrough innovation techniques that help find new solutions or overcome barriers and then take effective and lasting action to transform the organization, unleashing its true potential for performance.

What separates extraordinary leaders is a time-tested approach. This equation for success begins with innovative thinking about challenges that have not been imagined before: Innovate. Purposeful collaboration is the fuel for fresh perspectives that enable leaders to logically deliberate on critical issues. Achieving desired outcomes hinges on the assessment of calculated risks through the ability to evaluate. Mobilizing resources for implementation with a cause allows leaders to actuate their ideas and turn them into reality. It's not enough to demonstrate skills in only one or two of these attributes. The equation for success applies all of these factors for effective leadership excellence.
Innovate + Deliberate + Evaluate + Actuate = Success
