Being a successful leader requires more than a title. Leaders who have the skills, knowledge, and tools to effectively lead are the ones that grow their careers and their employee's careers.
This is why it is no surprise that leaders have the most significant direct influence on the employees they manage and their levels of engagement, productivity, and, ultimately, results.
To be that leader that others want to work for requires intentional effort in building your leadership capabilities. That's where Leadership Fundamentals comes in. Based on 35 years of experience coaching and developing leaders at all levels, this program builds the essential leadership skills you need to understand how to best focus your efforts and time for maximum results.

What to Expect
Leadership Fundamentals is delivered online over a number of live virtual sessions guided by a skilled facilitator. Between the sessions, you will complete personal reflection and application exercises to build your confidence and competence with the leadership skills and tools taught in class.

Create the right conditions to build and nurture high-performing teams
Identify the leadership style you naturally gravitate towards, and when to apply the others to have the greatest impact
Motivate, coach, and develop your team for optimal performance
Navigate the day-to-day requirements of leading with new knowledge, skills, and practical tools
Create and deploy an action plan that supports the advancement of your career in leadership
Maximize Your Learning Experience
To enhance your leadership development experience, the option is available to complete the LeadNOW 180° Assessment ($650) as an add-on to your program. This assessment was designed to help you bring out the best in yourself and your team. It provides leaders with insight into two factors that are most critical to ensuring teams have what they need to perform effectively: leadership styles and team conditions. While these two factors are part of a larger framework for leadership effectiveness they are the two factors that are directly within your control, creating an ongoing opportunity for action, reflection, and refinement in your leadership approach. This is where our greatest development can happen.
Reviews from Your Peers
“I became more self-aware of my leadership tendencies and how I most naturally respond to situations within my organization or teams that I lead. With my increased level of self-awareness, I feel more capable now of being able to focus on the areas of leadership that come less naturally to me. Upon completion of the course, I feel much better equipped with tools and strategies that I can apply to quite complex team dynamics within my organization."
