An alternative approach to developing leaders

Sometimes organizational life only allows for small injections of learning

Large cohort-based, multi-day leadership sessions are not for every organization.  An alternative exists.

Our small group leader development program is an ROI-driven, strategic intervention for improving organizational performance by engaging leaders to build the self-awareness and leadership skills needed to positively impact people and business outcomes through targeted small group coaching sessions.

Program Overview

This program supports the development of leaders with bite size learning segments facilitated by an experienced executive coach. Sessions are designed to engage small groups in learning critical leadership concepts and apply the concepts back at the workplace. Our modules set out dedicated content that is foundational for leadership development. The coach supports the learning by engaging in the lived and learned experiences of those in the group through an inquiry-based learning approach.  The facilitator as coach also enables the participants to determine “the so what” for themselves and the business and commit to tangible actions as a result of the learning.

Each Module has six 90-minute sessions.  Module 1 is a pre-requisite for other modules.  The focus for each module is noted below.
