Transforming Leaders is for those people who want to become more effective and transformative leaders. The program is designed to meet the individualized developmental goals of each participant.
Collectively you will be on a journey of leadership development, and interpersonal journey of learning to be a more effective person and leader through interactions with others. You will be part of a learning team participating in a number of small group kinetic activities to practice concepts presented in the program.
Individually, you will be on a journey of leadership development, an intrapersonal journey of becoming a better person, and better leader, by engaging in behaviors that close the “gap” in where you are now as a person, and a leader (how you perceive yourself), the feedback from your 360 survey, (how you are actually viewed) and who you would like to be by the end of the program, and in the future (an aspirational self). In effect, we are helping you build your personal leadership brand as a result of participating on the program.
The 360-degree feedback instrument the participant takes prior to the start of the program, tends to affirm and clarify strengths, reveal areas where one may be perceived differently by others than thought, and surface areas for potential development. Each participant will complete this prior to the start of the program, and the cost is covered in the tuition. Further instructions will be provided.
In confidential one-on-one coaching sessions, participants are helped to define their goals, examine the reality in which they must operate, be heard, supported and challenged, explore options, identify potential resources, plan and commit to action, and follow up.
During a portion of most classes, participants operate within teams settings to deepen the learning of classroom material, gain insights from one another, and provide mutual support.
Class sessions are usually 9:00 to 3:30, and held approximately every other week for two and one-half months. This gives time between sessions to apply what is being learned “back at work”, practice new skills, and develop and refine competencies.
Sessions consist of a rich mixture of pre-readings, instruction of content material, experiential activities, video clips, case studies, and individual and team reflection time. Returning to class and coaching sessions, participants can celebrate and reinforce what’s working, and revisit and work on areas still needing development.
The faculty is comprised of Col. Joe LeBoeuf, professor, Fuqua School of Business and lead instructor, Mark Molitor, Director of Leadership Development, and graduate of the 1998 class of Leadership Triangle, and Prinny Anderson, executive coach, educator and consultant, along with several special guest instructors.
This dynamic program has developed an outstanding reputation for having an extraordinary impact on participants’ leadership effectiveness, career advancement and even carry-over into their personal lives. Speak to any graduate!
“The organizational insights and team leadership training I received through Leadership Triangle were of a higher caliber, and of more use to me, than those I received during two years of a highly rated, full-time, MBA program. This is a great program, and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to increase their performance and satisfaction as a leader in the workplace, at any level, and in any industry.”
