Executive Leadership Program
About Executive Leadership
Senior leaders are uniquely positioned to transform their organizations and the communities they touch. To be able to accomplish this, these leaders must learn to see themselves in new ways — now, and over the course of their careers.
This is not your typical leadership development program. We believe that leaders already possess many of the technical and interpersonal skills that have helped them to achieve their current role. Instead, this program will focus on cultivating an expansive, agile leadership mindset that has the capacity to embrace innovation and lead change. This is 21st century leadership.
This cohort experience will provide a collaborative environment where leaders can tap into the collective brilliance of their peers and be guided by leadership experts and personal executive coaches to work on real challenges they face. The result is an invigorated, purposeful and supportive network of leaders who are motivated to move forward — as individuals and together — to inspire a ripple effect of unprecedented positive change throughout their organizations and communities.
With incredible instructors and guidance, I have brought a ton of knowledge and skills back to my employer which has strengthened our workforce.

Built on a foundation of current leadership research, the program is designed to maximize linkages across three themes:
- Leading people: Understand human behavior — self as well as others; develop models and mindsets for innovation
- Leading organizations: Build and shape a culture where excellence thrives and scales
- Leading change: Discover that change leadership is about leaders transforming themselves in order to successfully lead transformation in their organizations
What You’ll Learn
By the end of the program, leaders will have gained the knowledge to:
- Realize their impact and drive behavioral change through the results of 1:1 coaching and leadership assessment data.
