|Leadership Assessment Experience
The purpose of this workshop will be accomplished through the use of feedback instruments (MBTI, FIRO-B, Benchmarks, for example), experiential exercises, individual reflection and analysis, and brief lectures. One-to-one consultation with participants regarding patterns and themes in their feedback would strengthen the program and is an option.
Target Audience: Mid to upper level managers and executives.
The Leadership Assessment Experience requires a minimum of two days, and
depending on the needs of participants, can be designed for as many as
|Leaders Growing Leaders
i. A review
and application of Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) research of how
individuals develop their leadership skills and perspectives over the
course of their careers. The role of challenging job assignments, developmental
relationships, hardships, and coursework, and other experiences will be
presented discussed. Participants will complete an audit of the development
experiences they have had; they will also complete and get feedback from
the Job Challenge Profile and the Learning Tactics Inventory. Participants
will develop a clear understanding of how they, and the people report
to them, learn, grow and change.
Target Audience: The target audience for this workshop is managers and executives who have as part of their role and responsibility the development of other leaders and managers.
Designed as a two-three day program.
|Becoming a Leader is Becoming Yourself
One purpose of this workshop is to invite participants recover a sense of true self or identity. The culture in which we live, the organizations for which we work, the people with whom we work, often encourage us to become caricatures of ourselves. In the language of May Sarton, we learn to wear “other people’s faces.” This purpose will be partially accomplished by engaging participants in a consideration of their birthright gifts and limits.
A second purpose of this workshop is to assist participants in developing the insights needed to work and lead out of a deep sense of integrity. For the purposes of this workshop, integrity is understood as wholeness. Three different aspects reclaiming wholeness will be explored:
from Collusion to Congruence. Speaking our truth without blame or
judgment (Angeles Arrien) rather than hiding what we really think or feel
is the operational definition of congruence. Emphasis will be placed on
the intra-personal, interpersonal and organizational problems caused by
groups, small groups, and solitary settings, these work and leadership
issues are explored, making us of personal stories, reflections on work
experience, insights from poets, and experiential activities as a way
into reflection and discussion.
Requires a minimum of three days. Ideally, the program would be held in
four or five retreat-like sessions spread out over the course of a year.
|The Leadership Essentials
A secondary purpose of this workshop is to provide participants with optional ways for the leadership tasks to be accomplished - from a strong dominant individual leader to a shared or relational leadership model.
Target Audience: The practicing organizational leader, ideally one who has been in a leadership role for a minimum of three years.
This program is designed for a two-day workshop, and it also can be modularized
to fit within another program.
