Top global CEOs, executive committees, managers, and high potential leaders trust the Tantalus Group to provide the custom leadership training they need to perform at the highest level. We have coached and trained hundreds of leaders on a wide range of strategy, management, and communications topics. This includes areas like stakeholder planning, crisis communications, media training, M&A strategy, restructuring, and more.
Other training programs often do not have clear objectives, goals, or strategies. Companies end up wasting time and budget on misaligned training. Competency-based training from the Tantalus Group helps organizations understand what skills their leadership needs to succeed and helps grow those skills effectively.
Competency-based training starts by understanding what competencies managers and executives need to be successful. The Tantalus Group has helped billion-dollar global organizations create competency frameworks. These frameworks identify the work completed in an organization and the skills needed to complete that work effectively. We tailor these frameworks to align with company goals and objectives.
Based on these frameworks and our real-world experience, we have created several training programs to improve competencies in core areas. Each focus has objectives, applicable content, and key outcomes. Leaders will see an improvement in efficiency and performance after they have been through our training. They will be better equipped to take on the challenges of a modern-day manager and leader.
“We tie learning to real scenarios and real situations within the company. Leaders will see an improvement in efficiency and performance after they have been through our training.”
Wylie Rogers, President and CEO, The Tantalus Group
We tie learning to real scenarios and real situations within the company. Our content comes from experience in the field and working with leaders in top companies worldwide. All workshops include takeaways such as strategy documents, sample methodologies, and feedback.
We run these programs with top organizations globally and each has competencies tied to them:
Working as a global leader comes with a unique set of challenges our team knows well. Let us take you through examples of successful and unsuccessful global leadership. Gain the skills needed to work inter-culturally. Grow your ability to manage teams effectively at the global level. Develop the skills you need to go from a manager to a global leader.
All leaders work with stakeholders: employees, executives, suppliers, competitors governments, and more.

We will teach you how to create frameworks and tailored messaging for different stakeholder groups. Our workshops will also teach you how to map stakeholders and proactively address issues. Become a better stakeholder manager and get projects done faster.
Bringing a brand to life is a challenging task. We help leadership teams capture their unique company culture and help them describe it. This requires the ability to express complex ideas and issues in ways audiences can understand. Choosing stories, knowing your audience, and creating powerful content are all required to succeed. Our course will teach leaders these skills, as well as how to put the new narratives into practice, with employees, customers and media, amongst other important stakeholders.

Core to project management is the ability to compose plans, understand stakeholder objectives and expectations, and select the right channel.

Find threats and opportunities in CSR and how to deal with them.
Crises require leadership. Crisis management and communications are all about preparation. Developing and understanding the tools, skills, and processes necessary to address a crisis is critical. Our team will work with you to develop the skills needed to deal with a crisis.
Communicating within a company is difficult. Employees are busy and they have their own problems to worry about. Great internal communications get employees to change behavior and support strategic goals. Employee engagement is core to successful internal communications. Learn how to prompt employee dialogue, be a trusted advisor, and manage partners.
