LEAD is divided into two main parts.
The first half concentrates on the individual participant as a leader, including topics such as personal brand, leadership identity, executive presence, and effective communication with the broader audience.
The second half shifts the focus to team dynamics, exploring how the participant can lead effectively, foster an inclusive culture, and excel in negotiation.
In the introductory session, we will discuss the results of the leadership assessment inventories used in LEAD: CliftonStrengths and Hogan. Before the session, participants will have received their results for reference. During the session, participants explore how the assessments apply to their daily leadership behaviors, perceptions, and competencies.
It’s essential to note that individual results are shared only with each participant, and they have the autonomy to decide whether or not they wish to share their results with other cohort members.
