The Exceptional Leader Training 2024

The Exceptional Leader Training 2024

The Exceptional Leader program is a high-impact, comprehensive, six-session leadership mastery program geared toward established and emerging leaders and is ideal for supervisors, managers, and project managers. This program is designed to upgrade the management skills of leaders and dramatically increase their effectiveness.

This program is ideal for current leaders or employees who are slated for a leadership role in the next year. This program focuses on specific skills and strategies for managing people such as how to lead people effectively through coaching, developing, engaging, and holding crucial conversations. Participants will also learn tangible skills for better planning and productivity.

Participants will attend 6 VIRTUAL meetings through Zoom from 12:00pm – 3:30pm

Topics include:

  • Module 1: Time management and productivity
  • Module 2: Leadership coaching skills and performance management
  • Module 3: Engaging and recognizing employees
  • Module 4: Crucial conversations and communication in the workplace
  • Module 5: Effective delegation, holding people accountable and driving consistent results
  • Module 6: Leading at a higher level

This program has proven to be successful because the leaders have an opportunity to learn over the course of three months rather than all at once. This allows your leaders to go away after each session and implement new skills deliberately and get the support they need along the way. Our program includes homework and accountability to ensure your leaders are applying their learning. This is truly an active and participatory workshop rather than a class where leaders are just learning principles and theory.
