Leadership Advanced Session II: Understanding Your Strengths/Style
October 5, 2017, 7:30 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
Leadership Advanced is a cohort program for leaders with two or more years of experience. It is focused on key leadership assessments and topics. Participants will learn leadership concepts and models, build specific skills, and practice mastery of those skills through real case studies and small group mentoring and coaching. Leaders will focus on how to continue to develop those skills and mentor others through a targeted and specific individual leadership development plan.

Each part of this leadership program offers reflection, models and practice in leading effectively. We start with self-reflection as a leader because this is the intentional pathway to interacting well with others. A commitment to all the sessions as a leadership cohort will provide the fundamental connections and collaborations to make learning meaningful, relevant and sustainable. As an experienced leadership cohort group we will engage a deliberate review of the group’s current successful leadership practices and build upon those shared experiences as we approach each session’s learning.
Part I: You as a Leader: Discovery and Identity
The first three sessions focus on self-awareness about leading. We begin with creating a leadership learning community as we mentor, coach and support each other. We will review leadership approaches and examine which philosophies are most relevant to you, your specific departments, centers, groups or units. By articulating your professional values we will connect how those values translate into the ways you want to lead and communicate.
By using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality preferences and strengths instrument, we start with identifying your own preferences. We will subsequently use the instrument to describe and understand other’s preferences and adapt our communications to appreciate differences. The MBTI provides multiple applications for leading others such as understanding strengths and styles, communications, problem-solving, coaching and decision-making to name a few. Self-awareness and reflections will provide the foundational components of how to build trust with yourself as a leader and effective relationships with others. We will create a common language of leadership competencies using the leadership architect tool and develop an individual plan to continue your leadership learning.
