Who Should Attend Lead 4 Success?

Leadership Development Roadmap - Lead 4 Success - Leading Others

The program is ideal for

  • Emerging leaders with no direct reports, but on the path to leadership in the next 12 to 18 months;
  • First-time managers who have been in role for 6 to 12 months;
  • Leaders with 3 to 5 years of experience leading others;
  • Participants who want an intensive focus on the fundamental four competencies critical for all levels of leadership; and
  • Leaders who desire a compact yet compelling experience designed to enhance effectiveness in the workplace.

I really enjoyed the program! It was a great opportunity to learn new perspectives and tools to evolve as a leader. The activities were memorable and helped illustrate points, and the table conversations and 1-on-1 allowed for deeper discussion and sharing of real world, personal examples.

Benefits – Fundamental Four Leadership Skills

No matter the intelligence, experience, or drive, there are four core skills that are important for every leader at every level. The Center for Creative Leadership calls them the Fundamental 4: self-awareness, learning agility, influence, and communication. The Fundamental 4 have endured the test of time and are the basis for the Lead 4 Success program, where participants immerse themselves in development, adapt these skills to their own leadership contexts, participate with peers in learning, and share ideas to apply to their leadership lessons to their real world.
