Language of Leadership

Back to Programs

The Language of Leadership is a 6 month executive intensive designed for senior teams committed to causing a culture of widely distributed leadership and high performance. In this program, the team engages in a rigorous inquiry that unveils the fundamental structure of their leadership and trains them in the essential behaviors and practices (conversations) of high-performance teams. This unique developmental program leaves participants with a new access to their own power and responsibility in a way that alters who they are as leaders and sows the seeds for a new culture of leadership within the organization.
This program consists of 4, two day group sessions, one-on-one coaching and team coaching. The team is coached to create and deliver on Strategic Objectives, allowing participants to apply what is learned in the program while simultaneously delivering critical business results. These objectives are drawn from challenging business objectives that are at risk of not happening or happening in the time, quality or budget that is needed.
