Every leader rose to their position based on expertise and talent in delivering results. High impact leaders don't stop there. They commit to ongoing learning and development to continually fine tune their craft and better serve their organizations.
If you work in collaboration with others, the Heroic Leaders Institute might be your answer. In times of constant change, the capacity of teams to move with agility is paramount. Teams take their cue from their leaders. So what skills do leaders need to engage employees and drive excellence?
Heroic Leaders Institute (HLI) focuses on six core competencies identified by the Center for Creative Leadership as essential to transformative leadership. Over the course of four days, leaders explore:
Personal and professional development begins with our own awareness. Throughout HLI, participating leaders have multiple opportunities to assess themselves to determine what tools would be most useful to improve performance.
Identifying team needs can accelerate results. Carol Kovach's research at UCLA demonstrated that diverse teams have the potential to be either the lowest performing or highest performing depending on how well differences are managed and utilized. HLI participant leaders assess their teams to determine what areas to focus on to strengthen individual and collective results. Using case studies from the participants, leaders discuss and plan how they would apply the learnings and tools. Then each participating leader generates a customized action plan to strategically move their team forward. Participants are encouraged to share their plans with colleagues at work to further align with organizational directives and efforts.
If you are ready to examine your leadership skills and assess the needs of your team in order to take action for improvement, we'd love to talk with you about how the Heroic Leaders Institute can help.
