Developing Executive Leadership

1. Design Concept:

The role of the executive leader in business organizations has changed over the last ten years.  The pace of organizational change has increased to the level where executives are being held more accountable by boards of directors for their actions.  Executives face many challenges in today’s business environment.  Executives need to be savvy not only about strategic and financial issues of the business, but they also need to know and understand their leadership style and emotional quotient, ways to motivate direct reports and employees throughout the company, and how to manage organizational development to impact the culture of their organizations.  To this end, the participants will assess their leadership style and their emotional quotient, look at leader competencies, participate in a 360 degree feedback process and coaching process, and complete a post-course developmental assignment

This three-day seminar focuses on helping executives learn how to identify and manage the challenges they face.  Current research is cited in a way that the participants can immediately apply to their personal and professional lives.  In this highly interactive and fun seminar, the participants learn how to gain insight into their executive role and practice new knowledge and skills for their jobs.  The course structure and learning activities include:

1.   Course pre-work to be completed online via the internet Situational Leadership LEAD instrument and Executive Emotional Quotient on-line assessment,

2.   During the three-day course, the participants will complete the Situational Leader self-assessment instruments, view the Excellence Files video, participate in individual exercises, create an end of course developmental assignment to be completed before the second course session, small groups and large group activities; 

3.    After the completion of the course, the participants will complete the 360 degree feedback materials (within two weeks following the course), receive individual coaching by telephone the course leaders (to be completed within six weeks the end of the course), participate in a TELECLASS debrief process via telephone, and a final written report from the participants will be due back within six months after the completion of the course online. 

The role of the facilitator is to model the behaviors learned in this course, disclose personal examples from their work lives, and to use a high directing/high supportive leadership style with the participants based on the Situational Leadership Model.
