CORE PROGRAM ELEMENTS
Each of the program’s three phases consists of three and a half days of instruction combined with intervening project work and individual development activities.
Phase 1: Leading with Authenticity This session is devoted to developing ‘self’ and understanding the power in executive development. Participants will gain insights to use cultural awareness – individual, corporate and national – for optimal individual and business performance.
Phase 2: Leading High Performance Teams In this session participants learn to leverage cultural diversity in others to maximize the performance of teams and to work effectively across wide-ranging differences. Coaching and mentoring tools are introduced to emphasize development of talent.
Phase 3: Becoming a Corporate Leader Participants learn to apply heightened cultural awareness and develop social capital needed to lead strategic thinking, innovation and change at enterprise levels. They gain an understanding of roles and behaviors associated with the highest levels of corporate leadership, including the relevance of active community engagement.
■ Assessment – Each participant takes an assessment of competencies identified with successful executive leadership. This self-awareness becomes the baseline of a mentoring relationship that continues throughout the program. Mentors are chosen for their significant experience, typically within a Fortune 1000 company.
■ Project – Throughout the program participants work in small teams applying new tools and concepts to create an entrepreneurial solution to a social problem. Resulting business plans are presented to executive stakeholders at the conclusion of the program.
