Leadership Development Goals
Expect to review a range of leadership frameworks and explore how to manage the pressures of delivering in a VUCA environment. The emphasis throughout is on application, to help you become a better leader in the context in which you work now whilst building skills for the future. Deep dive into your personality using psychometric profiles to gain genuine insight on yourself as you function in your current business context.
Expand your peer networks with cohort from your session and alumni from the earlier sessions for cross industry insights.
Experience a variety of thought-provoking insights and experiential learning format. Apply your learning in a management challenge through simulation and role play.
Each Excel faculty member addresses one of the components of the leadership model. Though the faculty varies for different sessions, each faculty will challenge you to think, behave and motivate others differently with tools related to their particular area of expertise and competency.
Optional one on one coaching is available for participants at a cost. You will be assigned a coach that will help you to have a deeper understand of your psychometric assessment results, and to jointly craft your Individual Development Plan (IDP).
Four to six weeks after Excel, you’ll reconnect virtually with your coach twice to discuss the implementation of your IDP, to monitor its progress, and to identify and/or modify next steps based on your current status.
