Sample Custom Programs

Leadership Fundamentals for Elevance Health (formerly Anthem)

We developed a one-day Leadership Fundamentals program for Anthem specially designed for mid-level managers to build a shared mindset and hone collaborative skills and self-insight as effective tools for building a stronger organization. This one-day program challenged individuals to define key factors essential for more effective workgroups.

The program begins with discussion topics that included successfully leveraging personality and using communication strategies to maximize performance. In the afternoon, participants completed an experiential learning activity designed to show how collaboration and teamwork breed success. The day ended with a case study on how a great leader’s decisions are shaped and influenced by his/her values. These foundational principles challenge participants to think about leadership as a personal and authentic journey built on tangible skills and behaviors that have seen tangible results-driven solutions in the workplace.

Emerging Leadership Program for Carnival Cruise Line

We partner with Carnival Cruise Line in the development and delivery of the Emerging Leadership Program. This program is aimed to boost awareness, develop a growth-oriented leadership mindset, and highlight essential skills for emerging leaders and first-time managers.

This 1.5 day program begins with a deep dive into the identification of personal core values and the roles these values play in participant’s behaviors and decisions. A conversation around the power of interpersonal dynamics follows with a focus on behavior changes to foster effective teamwork and overcome barriers to collaboration. The program them shifts to focus on the skills participants need to be move strategic in managing their time and tasks with practical suggestions to minimize time intrusions, achieve greater productivity, and correctly delegate tasks. The program ends with an extended session on leadership presence and encouraging participants to draw on their unique life journeys to use the power of storytelling to engage, motivate, and inspire their teams, communicate authentically, and build relationships.

The Leadership Labs for the Miami Fellows

We partner with The Miami Foundation in the presentation of The Leadership Labs for the Miami Fellows program. Each cohort of the Miami Fellows program is comprised of young executives who are inspired by our community’s potential, have demonstrated ethical leadership, and have the dedication to do more.

The Leadership Labs consist of a 2.5-day opening session, followed by 3 morning labs scheduled throughout the course of the cohort. We provide sessions that utilize in-depth assessments and critical thinking tools to inform the leadership and decision-making characteristics of the Fellows. The sessions are custom designed to assist in identifying and leveraging a broad spectrum of competencies and assessments to assist the Fellows in developing personal and organizational strategies to address complex leadership issues. This program provides participants with tools to:

  • Ensure leaders who have a strong sense of self, make the right choices when it matters the most.
  • Reflect on their personal leadership characteristics and identify areas of focus and development.
  • Identify and be able to articulate a personal set of core values.
  • Acquire practical tools that ensure effective and successful conversations.
  • Develop a concept of vision that creates meaning and provides a compelling way forward.
  • Create a framework for long term and continuous leadership development.
