Take your leadership potential to the next level.  Great leaders are not born – they are made.  But how?   We believe that highly effective leadership skills are learned through a process of self-reflection, training, experience, and a willingness to challenge oneself and challenge conventional ways of problem solving. 

High-Impact Leadership: Maximizing Your Leadership Potential combines the best practices and principles behind the art and science of leadership, decision-making, problem solving and organizational effectiveness.   

The program focuses on three key areas:

Understanding oneself:  Through a rigorous 360-degree evaluation process you will gain a full understanding of your strengths, weaknesses and potential career "derailers."   An additional suite of leadership and conflict-management style assessments will provide further insight into the role these styles play in leadership effectiveness.   After the program you will receive a one-on-one coaching session with a skilled executive coach who will help you make use of the rich data provided in the assessment process. 

The Mindset of a Leader:  Through stimulating exercises and engaging discussions that explore the discipline of leadership, you will learn the best practices for improving individual and organizational decision making, how influence and power is leveraged in organizations, and powerful tools for coaching for performance improvement. Learn how to lead in today's multi-generational workplaces and improve your behavioral interviewing skills to build strong and successful teams.

Leading Others:  Building upon the perspectives gained earlier in the program, we take a deep dive into a number of diverse leadership models.   By understanding these different models, you will walk away with a tool-kit of approaches for managing others using the model best suited for each situation.  Through exercises and discussion you will also gain the strategies to build successful teams, manage conflict more effectively and link individual performance to organizational strategy.
