Leader of Leaders - On-site Training
Leaders need to carry out the mission and vision of the organization and those who are successful play the role of strategic thinker, leader, coach, counselor, motivator, and team player. In the 6-week/3-session Leader of Leaders program we examine the elements of leadership that have proven effective across roles and industries -- creating a strategic vision, critical thinking and decision making, influencing others, and delivering results. This program includes a leadership skills assessment and executive coaching sessions; two powerful catalysts to becoming the leader you most want to be.
