Bell Leadership Expands Licensing of Seminars in Response to Surge in In-House Training

Chapel Hill, NC – June 25, 2013 – While companies strive to keep pace in an exceedingly complex, fast-changing business world, those who invest in leadership training can obtain an edge over the competition.  Bell Leadership Institute, a recognized leader in executive education and development, gives companies a cost-effective way to build leadership by offering a Train-the-Trainer program. Through this, trainers can become certified to teach Achievers I, an intensive 3-day leadership development program requiring participants to undergo rigorous feedback on their personal and leadership effectiveness.

Since the program’s inception in 2005, Bell Leadership has trained more than 48 trainers in 25 companies. To date, over 3,300 people have graduated from Bell’s trainer-taught programs.

Dr. Gerald D. Bell, Founder and CEO of Bell Leadership, and lead architect of the Train-the-Trainer Achievers Program, says, “The success of a company depends on the strength of its leadership. In the long run, building leaders makes good business sense, giving companies a distinct market advantage. By training trainers to lead in-house Achievers programs, companies can reach deeper levels within their organizations — building more leaders at an effective cost.”

Due to increasing popularity of Bell’s Train-the-Trainer model, the institute has licensed seminars to include Achievers II.  The first group of trainers will be receiving certification this October and rolling-out the seminar in their companies by the end of this year.

Julie Thomas, Director of Operations at Heartland Dental, and a Bell-certified trainer since 2005, describes the benefits of Bell’s in-house program: “Being able to bring this great information back to our direct reports, peers and company leaders has been the most humbling and fulfilling experience from a workplace perspective; it is amazing to watch people growing personally and professionally with efficiency and depth.”

Bell’s Fundamentals of Training program, the first step towards trainer certification, will be held on August 19 – 20, 2013.

Bell Leadership Institute is a recognized leader in executive education and development. Since 1972, Bell Leadership has helped organizations develop leadership mastery through its programs and services.  Its training programs have been used by more than 500,000 leaders in more than 4,700 organizations in over 30 countries.
