Leadership Development

Leadership is ultimately about scaling capacity and capability in others, through teams, and in the organization to create outcomes that matter most. Our leadership development service offerings not only help you gain the knowledge you need to do this well, but also support you with putting it into practice.  

Assessments 

Assessments

Leadership assessments are a way to increase both self and social awareness. These assessments can help you gain insight into your strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and reactive tendencies. We recommend pairing a leadership assessment with follow on coaching to help you turn your new awareness into action. 

All assessments include a debrief with a certified coach who can help cut through the noise and understand what the results of the assessment mean for your specific situation and leadership context. For team assessments, we facilitate a group debrief session to help team members understand their results in relation to the groups overall results. We then support the team in deciding what actions to take to support their overall effectiveness.

Lab

Leadership Team Cohesion Lab

A cohesive leadership team is the backbone of a healthy organization. The absence of a cohesive leadership team can hinder organizational performance, erode employee morale, and impede the organization's ability to adapt to change and achieve its strategic objectives. Whether that team is the board of a non-profit organization, a group of departmental directors, or the C-suite executive leaders for a large organization – functioning as an effective team of leaders is essential for success.

Transition

  1. Trust-Building Foundation:

In the first step of Leadership Team Cohesion Labs, we focus on establishing a solid foundation of trust within the team. Through interactive exercises, facilitated discussions, and team-building activities, participants develop rapport, mutual respect, and psychological safety. This trust-building process lays the groundwork for effective communication, collaboration, and openness throughout the program.

2. Behavioral Strength Training Cycles:

In Step 2, Leadership Team Cohesion Labs takes a hands-on approach to leadership development through Behavioral Strength Training Cycles. Participants engage in skill-building workshops focused on specific leadership competencies tailored to their needs and objectives. After each workshop, participants have dedicated time to practice and apply the newly acquired skills in real-world scenarios, fostering experiential learning and sustainable behavior change. This cycle can be repeated for multiple skills as desired by the client, ensuring comprehensive development and mastery of key leadership capabilities.

3. Transition and Reflection:

Step 3 of Leadership Team Cohesion Labs is the transition phase, where participants reflect on their growth and prepare to sustain the changes moving forward. Through guided reflection exercises, group discussions, and individual coaching, participants consolidate their learning, identify areas for continued improvement, and develop action plans for ongoing development. This transition step ensures that the insights and skills gained during the program are integrated into everyday practice, leading to long-lasting behavior change and enhanced leadership effectiveness.

Skill Building Workshops 

Our workshops are designed as short (1-2 hour), intensive sessions focused on skills that support organizational effectiveness. These workshops, while helpful for leaders with positional authority can also be beneficial for staff at all levels of an organization. Adults learn by being engaged.
