Who Should Attend?

Leadership Essentials is a two-day program from the Center for Creative Leadership that is designed to help adults in all facets of life explore, understand, and unlock their potential. It offers key leadership models and helps leaders take stock of where they are and chart a path to greater effectiveness.

 The program includes three main components:

Assessment: Assessment tools to help participants look within and examine their identity, leadership skills and challenges, and set developmental goals.

Challenge: Experiential team-based activities provide a safe place for participants to enact and enhance leadership skills.

Support: The resource materials and peer input helps participants uncover practical steps they can take to reach personal development goals.

By applying the lessons from Leadership Essentials, participants will have the ability to:

  • Identify the essential elements of leader development and key drivers of effective leadership.
  • Maximize their leadership capacity using CCL’s framework for development.
  • Address personal leadership challenges.
  • Give and receive feedback using CCL’s SBI model.
