The Leadership Accelerator Program
Are you ready for the challenge?
Leadership matters – in so many ways and at all levels of an organization. And it’s not only about getting leadership ‘right’, but it’s about every leader continually becoming better and more effective. The research is clear that the best leaders are continually building greater self-awareness and taking action to continually develop their skills and behavioral repertoire – big and small. The Leadership Accelerator Program is designed to sharpen both. This program will transform managers from task-oriented contributors to operational leaders focused on moving the organization’s priorities forward in innovative ways. Participants can expect to gain focus in their efforts and plans, lead and influence more effectively both upwards and downwards, and develop a concrete plan for continued acceleration of their leadership momentum.
