Here’s how a Leadership Learning Journey works:

1. After discussing your goals for the initiative, we assess what improvement opportunities exist on the group level and on individual-participant bases. This includes structured interviews with stakeholders and participants, as well as personality and motivation testing.
2. We review our assessment results and proposed program design with you; we then integrate your feedback into a final design. Similarly, we create development plans with coachees and collectively share those plans with their managers.
3. We deliver a series of customized skill-building workshops, complemented by one-on-one coaching sessions to your participants; the number, length and duration of coaching sessions are tailored to meet individual needs.
4. Throughout, we track results against the goals and opportunities defined at the outset, and fine-tune accordingly; we conduct post-coaching assessments and jointly explore ongoing development goals with you
