The Growing Leadership Program Process

Program OverviewOur Facilitators

The Growing Leadership Program is not only about learning and developing. It also identifies two key challenges that a participant faces and these challenges become project goals which are the focus of measurable outcomes by using an “accountabilty loop” between the business owner or leader, the participant and the program facilitator. The return on investment to the business is not only a better participant whose leadership has grown … but also some real business goals achieved through the process. This process then becomes an ongoing process of achievement toward further project goals for the participant post course completion.

The Leadership Program Delivery

The content is delivered by professional facilitators with a combination of “live workshop” experiences …typically of two hours duration off site. There are also videos to watch and learn from, podcasts to listen to and written exercises to complete. The participant group is made up of many individuals from different working situations so that their exists the opportunity of further growing the participants’ understanding of business in different business scenarios. Then there’s case studies to discuss and question posing situations for the group to “wrestle with.” You see, a significant part of this program is that some aspects of leadership can be taught, but some need to be “caught!

By “caught” we mean the process that is applied in the program involving interacting and discussion to explore solutions and then to see various possibilities and options and the value and risks of different courses of action. This program is not about completing a series of modules, receiving a certificate of recognition, and being done! This Program is about commencing a process of learning receiving recognition for being able to lead and Influence and the process being internalised … and it continues!

Pre Program Process

This involves the Participant and the in-house Mentor meeting with the Program facilitator to discuss potential Projects and to undertake an evaluation of skills, attitudes, and abilities. This is a very positive opportunity to gain clarification around the issues, and challenges that the business is facing that can be handled more effectively by developing the participants leadership. This evaluation by the participant and the in-house mentor ensures the real identification of issues and challenges, and that real projects are put in place.
