Issue 7 2023, Acquisition International | 15 LiDRS: Developing Organizations, Teams, Managers, and Leaders s a highly regarded leadership training and consultancy firm, LiDRS is proud to offer tailormade solutions that are customized to meet the needs and requirements of its clients. The flagship product of the LiDRS Academy is the ‘LiDRS Practitioner Program’, which is a six-day leadership training course. On top of this, the academy offers a three-day course titled ‘LiDRS Master Program’, a ‘train the trainer’ course. All of LiDRS’ offerings have been designed in line with the unique LiDRS model, which was developed based on thorough research related to the distinctive skills and traits that many leaders possess. The company zeroed in on the six essential skills of an inspiring leader, referred to as the “Key Leadership Features” (KLF), which include guiding, observed, diplomatic, mental, social, and action features. Since its establishment, LiDRS has worked to keep up with the changing environment, for example by adding social emotional intelligence skills to its list of KLFs. As well as this, it has utilized its philosophy to create an innovative, fun, and easy-to-use SaaS solution called the LiDRS Online Portal. Useful to managers, directors, and HR officers alike, the portal allows users to measure how others perceive their methods of leadership, identify development areas, and measure their progress as a leader. In its consultancy and interim management solutions, LiDRS uses its portal and philosophy as a reference in order to grow organizations, teams, create leaders, and drive performance. Over the years, LiDRS has provided assistance to several companies that needed help to improve their operational performance. This has involved working with a number of semiconductor companies that could not meet their growth potential, businesses with failing ERP implementations, and leaders who had found themselves unable to make the next step. LiDRS has successfully brought its expertise to these companies, providing practical leadership solutions that have enabled them to obtain their desired results. In its work on these projects, LiDRS has found its unique model to be astoundingly successful and has driven results for countless businesses with its use. This is why LiDRS has been chosen by a number of renowned companies to serve as their provider of leadership training, consultancy, and coaching. Alongside its unique model of leadership consultancy, LiDRS stands out from others in the field because of its exceptional team of trainers, coaches, and consultants who have real-time, infield leadership experience working at senior levels. The company prides itself on the fact that it trains all of its employees itself, using its own renowned courses and effective model. LiDRS is headed by a strong, driven team of leaders who are equipped with an excellent network of industry connections and extensive professional experience in managerial roles. Over the last 10 years, they have become well-known in many industries, primarily the semiconductor, process, maritime, and aviation sectors, as well as healthcare and defence. The LiDRS leadership team have worked hard to remain relevant in their field, writing extensively about leadership, team development, and improving operational performance as interim directors. For example, the company’s most recent book, which dives into the topic of increasing psychological ownership, was nominated to receive the title of Management Book of the Year in the Netherlands. As a result of its excellent leadership training courses and solutions, LiDRS has been awarded Best Leadership Training & Consultancy Firm, Netherlands, in the Global Excellence Awards 2023. In the future, the company plans to continue to improve its online portal and add more selfdeveloped training courses like “Leadership During Change” and “Effective Team Leaders” to its offerings. As well as this, LiDRS is in the process of rebranding, as part of which it plans to launch a new website. It hopes that this will enable it to reach a broader audience with its training courses.
