Enroll in the program and you’ll join a group of peers (limited to 18) to complete key six leadership courses:

  • Communicating for Leadership Success | September 11 | 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
    This foundational course helps leaders communicate effectively so they can spark action in others. The course teaches leaders the interaction essentials they need to handle the variety of challenges and opportunities they encounter every day in the workplace and beyond.
  • Building and Sustaining Trust | September 18 | 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
    This course introduces Trust Builders, actions leaders can take to build and sustain trusting relationships, as well as common Trust Breakers that can erode or quickly break trust. Applying these skills to build trusting relationships enables people to take risks, identify and solve problems, and collaborate to achieve business results.
  • Addressing Poor Performance | September 25 | 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
    This course builds leaders’ skills in handling chronic performance problems. They learn how to document and present a solid case for needed improvement and use effective interaction skills. They identify the steps to take after the performance problem discussion to provide ongoing feedback and support, and determine if it is necessary to impose formal consequences.
  • Driving Change | October 2 | 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
    This course provides the skills and resources leaders need to accelerate the process of implementing change with their team members and to create an agile work environment where people are more open to change.
  • Maximizing Team Performance | October 9 | 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
    This course focuses on how leaders can work with their teams to build the infrastructure that enables maximum performance. Leaders gain experience in diagnosing and applying the five Team Success Factors—Results, Commitment, Communication, Process, and Trust.
  • Adaptive Leadership | October 16 | 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
    This course teaches leaders how to enhance the effectiveness of their interactions by adapting their approach to people based on what they want to discuss and how they think people will respond. By better meeting the needs of each individual, leaders create higher levels of engagement and organizational results.

As you move through the curriculum with a consistent peer group, you share learning on a deeper level. This team-based format builds an invaluable skillset in today’s workplace.

The Program includes prep work, ongoing action items, peer check-ins, and on-demand virtual reinforcement activities.

What if you miss one of the sessions?
You have one or two options to make up a class. For any class, you can have a 1×1, hour-long phone coaching session with the instructor to learn and practice the materials. For the first three classes you also have the option to complete a two-hour web-based version of the class. The fee for both options depends on your organization’s membership level. You can also choose not to complete the make-up session, but you will not receive the certificate and display cover upon completion of the last class.

Requests for cancellation received at least 48 hours prior to the class date will be accepted and the class fee will be refunded in full. For cancellations received within 48 hours of the class date, and for participants who fail to attend the class, no refund will be issued.
