Custom Education for Your Organization

Through our customization service, your program will be designed in accordance with your organization’s goals to deliver real-world results. Your organization will gain from relevant learning that your team can directly apply in the situations they face daily. 

  • "Working together, a customized program was designed and delivered by Haskayne that combines our unique company culture with leading-edge thinking and real-world applications to advance and accelerate the development of Pason’s current and future leaders."
    Ron Dudar, Human Resources Manager, Pason Systems Corp
  • "Our program partnership with the Haskayne School of Business helps our key people to think strategically, manage risk and find creative ways to sustain accelerate growth. Our investment in Executive Education has rsulted in higher performance for both the participants and the company."
    Curtis Bunz, Head of Law, Bayer CropScience (Calgary)
  • "Not only did Haskayne faculty design and develop a program that addressed specific leadership development requirements of the Transportation department, they refined the program over multiple cohorts to ensure continued relevance to our current environment. This leading-edge program supported us in preparing managers to address complex challenges and in facilitating the development of cross-functional relationships, benefits that we continue derive value from today.”
    Uanna Chudyk, Manager, Support Services Division, City of Calgary
  • "The Haskayne Executive Education customized leadership training program was above my expectations. I am very familiar with different learning programs, even what Harvard has to offer. It is impressive that we don't need to send our people to Harvard to receive top level leadership training; we have such excellent programs right here at the University of Calgary”.
    Naweed I. Syed, FRCP (Edin), Professor and Head, Dept. Cell Biology & Anatomy, Postdoctoral Program Director, Office of the VP (Research), University of Calgary
  • “We started our custom education in 2011, since that time we have implemented participant’s projects that have impacted all areas of our operations resulting in a increasingly marketable proposition for our clients. As well, we have seen a 93% employee retention rate of all program participants and 43% have received promotions due to their increased abilities.”
    Jon Koop, Director, Director of Training and Development at Calfrac Well Services Ltd.
  • “The strength of Haskayne’s custom programming comes from how tailored the sessions are. The Albi High Performance Leadership Development program was designed specifically for our organization with content, exercises and projects that were relevant to our business and maximized the program impact.”
    Jason Mauro, Vice President, Albi Homes

Client Success Stories

What You Can Expect

Here’s what you can expect from Haskayne’s customized programs:

Contextualization: Haskayne will work in partnership with your organization to design and develop a program that integrates into your strategic goals, directly addresses current and long term challenges and supports learning longevity (stickiness) and continuous improvement. Haskayne will work closely with your team to ensure that the content delivered is relevant to your organizational context.

Application and Integration: Action Learning Projects (“ALPs”) incorporated within our leadership programs serve three main purposes:

  1. Application of knowledge – ALPs provide an opportunity for participants to apply the concepts, skills and tools gained during the program to a project that is relevant and meaningful. The result is increased “stickiness” of program learning.
  2. Enhanced Program Value - Working on projects deemed “important” by your organization allows both the organization and program participants to realize greater value from the learning experience. Emergent leaders grow most when tasked to work on ALPs that are real, challenging and that are endorsed by senior management. 
  3. Tangible Program Outcome – ALPs provide a tangible outcome of participant learning that is typically missing from executive development programs. ALP presentations allow senior management to see and hear just how much participants have grown as a result of the leadership program. ALPs can also have significant influence on your organizational culture, processes and bottom line.

Practical and Relevant Faculty: Haskayne faculty are chosen based on their broad range of real-world experience and facilitation with executive learners. Haskayne faculty facilitate learning by leveraging relevant knowledge and practical application. Faculty will link class ideas through experiential activities and problem-based learning approaches that apply to your organization's context. As participants start to work on their Action Learning Projects, the Academic Director will provide support through mentorship and seek out subject matter experts within Haskayne to assist each participant with completing their comprehensive and critically mapped projects - thereby challenging each participant to reach and stretch his or her capabilities. 

Customer Service: In addition to the Haskayne program development team, the Executive Education Client Experience Manager and a designated program coordinator also support each custom program. Our dedicated team oversees all custom programs from beginning to end to ensure the best learning experience and highest level of service is achieved. Following the program, participants will still have access to the expertise base at Executive Education, as Haskayne encourages all participants to realize and implement the results of their leadership education.
