Principles of Effective Leadership

A Foundational Leadership Program


View Next Start Date

Leaders can be found almost anywhere in the organization, regardless of title or tenure. However, many people do not see themselves as one for any number of reasons. There is great power when you start to see yourself as a leader and understand what it takes to be successful in such a position.

In Principles of Effective Leadership, you will take a deep dive into the five leadership qualities that high-performing leaders possess. This foundational program will leave you energized, focused, and prepared to apply said qualities in your day-to-day life leading people.

This leadership program was designed by two people; one who led a naval submarine and its diverse crew, the other who spent years leading organizations in the boardroom. These experiences are what make Principles of Effective Leadership highly-interactive and relevant.


Ideal For

Whether you are preparing to move into a leadership role, have been promoted recently into leadership, or have been a people leader for many years, Principles of Effective Leadership is for those who want tangible tools they can use to drive individual and team success.

On top of this, pre-work and post-training reinforcement are available and encouraged to further build confidence and competence.

Reviews From Your Peers

"Simply the best training, the most practical, relevant, and effective training I have ever been part of."
"It was both insightful and revealing. It brought two seemingly disparate and unrelated environments together: the close confines of a submarine juxtaposed against the similarly close quarters of the business boardroom."
"It makes it clear that we should be creating an atmosphere of inclusion and treating our biggest investment, human capital, with respect. The contrasts between the Navy and organizations show a clear gap in the way inclusion should be done."
