Running Cohort-Based Leadership Development Programs

The single biggest way to impact an organization is to focus on leadership development. There is almost no limit to the potential of an organization that recruits good people, raises them up as leaders and continually develops them. - John Maxwell


Highly effective tailored leadership development programs

Enabling Participants To Strengthen Specific Competencies While Building Strong Cross Organizational Relationships

Change Essentials has designed, facilitated and evaluated tailored leadership development programs for commercial and federal organizations. These programs have included 10-75 participants. These highly rated interactive programs have included classroom-based, virtual and blended formats.

Some programs have focused on building specific competencies such as leadership resilience or managing conflict. Other programs focused more broadly on meeting the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) to include leading change, leading people, getting results, building coalitions and business acumen.

The programs have been transformative for many participants and have resulted in more confident leaders who have received a higher rate of promotion and success than their peers.

Our leadership development capacity building process involves:

Partnering with you to assess what will be most beneficial to participants - conducting a needs assessment
Designing a tailored and highly interactive leadership development program best suited to meeting participant and organizational needs
Managing the logistics to execute a smooth program
Ensuring participants have robust development plans
Facilitating the program in structured modules over time to meet organizational capacity building needs
Evaluating outcomes to assess effectiveness and sharing relevant program and organizational insights with you

Assessments such as Myers Briggs, the Conflict Dynamics Profile, Emotional Intelligence (EQ 360) and DiSC as well as 1-1 coaching are integrated to reinforce participant learning.

Organizational Change
The rate of change facing government and commercial organizations is staggering. Changes can be driven by legislation, new leadership, old structures and processes no longer working, a change in mission/purpose, new systems, an unhealthy culture, or a need to innovate.
