Center for Creative Leadership Launches Tailor-Made Leadership Program for the Russian Market
Moscow, May 8, 2012 - To better serve Russia's fast paced business environment, the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) is launching a tailor-made Achieving Leadership Effectiveness (ALE) program for the Russia and CIS market.
Based on CCL's award-winning Leadership Development Program (LDP), the ALE program addresses the unique leadership challenges facing organizations and business leaders in Russia today. The powerful three-day course specifically focuses on such topics as influencing and working across boundaries, and is aimed at mid to upper level managers.
"CCL has been successfully running leadership training courses in Russia since 2008," says Don Prince, General Director, CCL LLC Moscow. "One thing we have continually heard from participants is their interest in a compact learning option, as the business culture makes it difficult to schedule extended absences from the office. The ALE program is the result of CCL listening to feedback from our clients and designing a tailor-made option that better serves the fast paced nature of organizations operating in Russia and the CIS."
The program is ideal for experienced managers who work in the 'middle zone' of an organization, whose responsibilities include leading other managers and/or senior professional staff and who typically have an operational, group or department managerial responsibility. Over the course of the three day program, participants will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to 'lead from the middle', including the ability to bridge the gap between senior management and the frontline, collaborate across the organization, manage complexity, leverage experience and build resiliency.
The course further includes one-on-one individual coaching sessions, along with post-program coaching via teleconference, to further strengthen the learning experience and help participants transition towards sustainable leadership behavior.
"We're really pleased with the cutting edge design developed by our in-house designers," says Prince. "The result is that participants benefit from the best of both worlds: you have a high level of impact and insights - a characteristic of our LDP programs - all compacted into three very full days."
The program is conducted in the Russian language and will launch in Moscow on May 22 - 24.
