VIVO Team’s



We love data. It provides insight into the efficiency of your talent and workplace culture by clearly showing what’s working and what areas need improvement. Our initial assessment provides the data set that helps drive decisions about your team and leadership development needs. Not only interesting, our analytics are instructive GOLD!


Assessing again when training is complete shows the impact training has made on both individuals and your bottom line. It also ensures you see a measurable return on your training investment.


Effective, long-term learning is rarely achieved by a one-off event. Enter Spaced Learning, a new, research-based and highly effective approach to learning design and talent development.


A proven strategy to help people learn more quickly and remember better, Spaced Learning is a series of short, intense training sessions punctuated by an interval of no learning. When training reconvenes, the learning objectives are repeated so there is no “assimilation” lag time: learners can see change by practicing and implementing their training right away.


No same-old-same-old, pre-recorded learning here! All VIVO Team training and coaching is engaged, dynamic and instructor-led.


Guided in real time, all training is tailored to your specific needs, with leaders and their teams learning together. The online environment is ideal for unifying and building teams with members in multiple locations so that wherever there’s an internet connection, learning happens on the schedule you and your team set together.

Why develop your leaders?

The most successful companies in the world have a culture ongoing leadership development. Why?


Leaders create environments that drive performance. They motivate and enable those they manage. Today’s business environment requires everyone to perform at their best, especially in the areas of creativity, innovation and breakthrough thinking. These outcomes only come from leadership that’s highly engaged.

The 4 kinds of

leaders we train


An emergent leader is a strong performer who’s been identified as having leadership capacity or they may be an individual preparing for their first management role.  Let us coach, train and develop their leadership understanding and skills for the best outcomes individually and for the organization alike.


Due to unforeseen circumstances and often based on their technical knowledge, an accidental leader is someone who’s unexpectedly been assigned a leadership position. Let us help prepare them for their new role and give them the foundation they need for success.


Involved in the daily supervision, planning and administrative processes that help your company meet its business objectives, a senior leader is someone who already knows how to lead. A move to the executive deck may be imminent or they may need support around shifting culture or building more effective teams. VIVO Team training and coaching can help with that.


Executive leaders are those individuals directly responsible for fulfilling a company’s organizational goals, creating and implementing strategic plans, spearheading product or service development and directing big-picture decision making. Now provide them targeted coaching on how to develop and nurture new leaders or successfully manage succession planning.

How we help

Every successful organization or business exists, thanks to great leadership. In alignment with big picture business strategies, a good leader focuses teams, inspires performance and creates a positive and motivated work environment. Ongoing leadership development is vital to the success of your business.


Teams are a reflection of their leaders. Good leaders boost employee engagement, increase trust, build better relationships and get more done in less time. Talent development is simple: The better your leaders, the higher functioning your teams, the better your business results.


We’re committed to ensuring our training is relevant to your leaders real-time, real-life issues. 60% of the VIVO Team Leadership Development program consists of practical training models, scenarios and techniques in an online group setting, while 40% consists of each learner receiving one-to-one coaching to work through specific workplace issues. The combination of theory and practical, applicable tools is meaningful and immediately useful.

Reinforcing leadership development

One of the most important developments of the global leadership scene is the rise of Millennials who will now obtain more leadership positions with high level responsibilities.

Among the trends reported in a study published by the Center for Creative Leadership is the decline of the “heroic leader” and the successive rise of a new form of leadership – a collective one.

Millennials are the best-placed generation to develop as leaders because of their understanding of the reality of today’s world. Millennials don’t need traditional classroom-based leadership training. They don’t want to spend time studying. In their time-pressed world, they’re eager to get to action. They will respond much better to approaches that allow them to practice and ritualize new leadership behaviors without leaving the context of day-to-day life.

More than 3.6 million baby boomers are set to retire and more than one-fourth of millennial workers will become managers.  Succession planning and next generation leadership development (needs) to be prioritized.

Companies with high leadership qualities are six times more likely to be among the top 20 financial performers of all organizations. Those with high levels of leader engagement and retention and leadership quality are nine times more likely to outperform their peers financially.

In the near future, organizations will need to learn how to mitigate the generational differences that will arise once Millennials get ahold of executive jobs and develop new strategies to benefit from the strengths of this generation.
