The “Growing Leaders” Program
Our Leadership Development combines group-based leadership sessions, accountability circles and one-on-one coaching to help leaders take their performance to the next level and get results.
Success as leaders depends less on what we can accomplish on our own, and more on what we can achieve by working with and through others.
Many of us gain deep functional and technical knowledge and skills in school, college and traditional training programs. But we often don’t learn how to gain self-awareness, to question our thinking and shift into more powerful way of leading, improve collaborative action, how to create mutually-beneficially relationships with colleagues, or how to have the purposeful, effective (and sometimes difficult) conversations that actually drive the company’s most important results.
Most of us – if we do acquire these competencies at all – do so the hard way, through our life experiences. And for increasing numbers of organizations in a wide variety of industries, the ability to initiate and build strong relationships and have effective conversations are the foundation upon which extraordinary breakthrough results are achieved.
This leadership program is about acquiring and practicing these skills and competencies. It provides a new foundation and new set of tools for improving leadership effectiveness, professional and personal productivity, relationships, “emotional intelligence” and our ability to actually achieve results desired in a wide variety of areas.
- Increased self-awareness and knowledge your approach impacts others
- Improved emotional intelligence and relationship building skills
- Increased trust, collaboration, and accountability
- Greater effectiveness in producing desired outcomes
- Broader set of tools, strategies and frameworks to shift perspectives
The program is typically presented as 8 half-day modules, with each module spread out over time with assignments to be completed between session as well as the start of the program. This allows participants to reflect on, apply, and deepen the learning. In addition, participants learn with and through and from each other – in the process enhancing communication and relationships, trust, collaboration and teamwork, and boost individual and team effectiveness and productivity and performance. The program can also be customized to suit the specific needs.
