Bring your talent. We’ll take you to a whole new level.
The development of emerging leaders may be the most critical challenge facing contemporary organizations. Research has shown that the number one reason leaders derail is due to “problems with interpersonal relationships.” A Stanford University study found that of 10,000 people who were let go from a job, more than 90% were fired for interpersonal reasons. Choosing to face your leadership challenges and explore the possibilities of authentic, effective leadership is an important first step to maximizing your potential.
Partner with the Executive Development Center and tap into the experience of a group who has trained leaders and done extensive leadership research for over 20 years. The Executive Development Center is a network affiliate of the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) with access to the latest research, tools, and managerial best practices.
Our leadership programs build in five stages:
1. Leadership Assessment
The Executive Development Center uses 360-degree, multi-rater instruments and self-assessments as the vital first step in leadership development. We help you gain a clear, honest understanding of where you are and how your current approach to leadership is working, with respect to both other people and your organization’s goals.
2. Practical Applications
We employ the best cutting-edge research and thinking available to solve the real-world problems leaders face. Participants leave these programs with concrete skills that increase their effectiveness and ultimately improve the bottom line.
3. Skill Development
Our programs focus on the critical interpersonal skills required for effective leadership such as embracing change, managing conflict, interpersonal communication, and team building. The Executive Development Center can design customized programs for your organization that include any combination of these and other skill sets.
4. Leadership Coaching
Our coaches and coaching teams work with you individually to provide greater insight and to further develop your capabilities.
5. Future Challenges
We give you the tools to apply a forward-thinking perspective to future challenges within your organization.
