What is Leadership Development?

Leadership entails each person becoming the best they can be, leveraging their strengths, working in their passions, and energizing their team around purposeful work. The Encompass Executive Leadership Program works closely with clients to ensure our workshops are customized to the specific needs of each cohort. We aim to develop the whole leader—connecting them with their innate strengths and showing them how they can be leveraged to inspire their teams and clients.

The Leadership Development Workshop Module Topics

Who am I as a leader?

Participants explore fundamental questions about leadership and begin articulating their own leadership style and goals.

What are my vision, mission, and values?

Vision, mission, and values together can create a ‘north star’ to guide companies forward as their strategies and tactics evolve. This session helps participants understand and begin to articulate what their organization is looking to achieve.

How do I influence?

In this course we turn the traditional ideas of influence and negotiation on its head. We move from the idea of "I (the influencer) need to push you (the influenced) to do what I want" to instead, asking you: "who are you trying to influence?" "what does the other person or situation need from you?" and "how do you both get what you want"? Together we work through an Influence and Negotiation Map grounded in real world people and situations.

Who is on my team?

Leaders get things done through motivating others; this is what makes the foundation of a high-performing team. We will examine who you need on your team and the roles each person needs to fulfill. We also look at strengths both in leaders themselves and others to ensure they are being strategic as they build and develop their high-performing teams.

How do I execute?

We know one of the biggest pitfalls of leadership is not knowing precisely how to execute on your vision, mission, and strategy. In order to drive toward success, it is imperative to be aware of your own behavioral pitfalls and understand how to prioritize through the noise and focus on the impactful work that needs to be done.
