Leadership in Action
Expand your boundaries to achieve leadership and followership success
For an entrepreneur building a company – or an entrepreneurial thinker strengthening an existing organization – moving beyond the leadership comfort zone is more than an option: It is necessary for survival. Economies and industries are being turned inside out. Traditional corporate hierarchies are no longer sustainable. As a result, standardized approaches to leadership no longer work. In the absence of a roadmap and rulebook, today’s managers need bold leadership skills to drive real change. They also need fresh paradigms to make effective decisions.
Leadership in Action (LIA) shows managers how to achieve both. A rigorous, three-day, total-immersion experience helps challenge, stretch, and push leadership skills in unexpected ways. Using the transitional approach to change, an action-and-review framework extends thinking beyond classic presentation and case-study methods. During the action program segment, participants are challenged to move, perform, communicate, and create during an innovative set of experiential encounters. During the review segment, participants are then engaged in collaborative peer feedback. The combined elements work together to accelerate personal and professional growth – breaking out of the leadership routine and into greater opportunity.
“The effective leader searches for the better question, accepts inexperience, stays in motion, crafts good stories, encourages improvisation. People who act in this way help others make sense of what they are facing; sense-making is about how to stay in touch with context.”
