Leadership Certificate

While the worst seems to be over, there are plenty of unique challenges left facing organizations of all types; indeed for some, those challenges are just beginning. As a result, now more than ever organizations need and want individuals that can make a difference.

The Leadership Certificate (LC) 3.0 “The Making of Leaders™” is designed for those who wish to take charge, seek new strategies to lead in tough economic times, and tangibly contribute to the achievement of the organization’s goals.

The Certificate experience is comprised of 10 one-day sessions plus a final half day session. The sessions are on alternate Saturdays and the first one is February 27, 2010!

Led by successful senior executives and proven subject matter experts, “The Making of Leaders™” provides insights, practical guidelines and personalized coaching on a variety of topics central to the creation and development of leaders.

In addition, the experience offers the opportunity to conceive and implement a project within one’s organization to make a bottom-line impact, and thusly make the enrollment an investment neutral process. We call this “Session X”. Time is allocated at the end of each session to carry the projects to successful completion.

These are challenging times for us all. LC 3.0 focuses on how you can turn challenges into opportunities. While Leadership Development can be characterized as an ongoing process, when new and unique difficulties face us, added dimensions emerge. At such times, leadership takes on a whole new meaning, and the challenges of being a leader become magnified.

*How can you positively increase the impact you have on your work environment?
*How can you become a role model for your organization?
*How do you ready yourself for enhanced roles in the context of your career goals?
*How can you leverage your understanding of how others see you, towards enhanced contributions?
*How do you “re-invent” yourself to address these unprecedented times while remaining an authentic leader?
