Course Descriptions

Module 1 - Discover Your Potential (Required)  Feb 8-9 8:30am-12:00pm
Understanding yourself is an important step to becoming a better leader of others. In this class, you will learn to distinguish between your core and aspirational values. You’ll explore unconscious bias and consider your leadership blind spots. And you’ll explore how to become a more authentic leader by leveraging your emotional self-awareness. You’ll reflect on where you’ve come from, what you’ve learned, and how to apply this as you define your ideal future state as a leader. This enhanced self-awareness will provide a solid foundation so you can be heartfully engaged in this program.

Module 2 - Express Your Vision (Required) Mar 1-2 8:30am-12:00pm
Now that we are more comfortable with our authentic selves, we will cast a vision and set some goals. We are becoming aware of patterns and will use self-perception to shift the balance of power from old internal voices to new internal voices. We will practice using our self-perception to assertively express thoughts and feelings and how others view this. Explore how to become more emotionally independent and discover how to communicate our feelings in constructive and socially acceptable ways. We will recognize how to balance our independence to gain empowerment in ourselves, but not alienate others. At the end of the course, you will leave with a personal vision and skills to practice building your self-esteem, your self-confidence, and improving your assertiveness techniques.

Module 3 - Inspire Impact (Required) Mar 15-16 8:30am-12:00pm
You will learn how effective leaders can build more meaningful relationships with others in a way that builds trust, loyalty, and motivation. You will understand the impact your communication style has on others and whether you are achieving the results you intend. You will appreciate the importance of an empathetic leader; recognizing and acknowledging the emotions of others and how to effectively manage your emotions in your response. Lastly, you will appreciate the importance of being a socially responsible leader, and inspiring others towards a greater purpose of your organization or community. 

Module 4 - Choose with Purpose (Required) Mar 29-30 8:30am-12:00pm
Apply a decision framework for the next steps in our personal leadership journey. We will discover how our individual approaches to risk influence decision-making processes. As part of the course, we will become familiar with decision analysis and problem-solving frameworks to gain skill and comfort in making strategic decisions. We will practice gaining alternate perspectives as a means of understanding innovation and anticipating risk. We will come away with our own next steps and an appreciation of how transformational leadership can improve the quality of team decision-making.

Module 5 - Achieve Resilience (Required) Apr 12-13 8:30am-12:00pm
Is stress something to worry about or can it be a tool to improve our level of function and actually help us accomplish more?  This course will help you to identify and manage triggers of stress in yourself and others. You will gain an understanding of leadership and workplace factors that influence individual stress and learn how your personality can impact your perceptions of stress, and your approach to managing it. You will learn coping approaches, along with strategies to improve personal resilience. By the end of the course, you should be able to recognize different approaches to stress
