In order for leaders to think and act strategically, it often requires a significant step up in skill set. It is common for leaders who make the move to a Director level—despite their best efforts—to get pulled back into unproductive details. This multi-step developmental process provides leaders with the tools (The Big 9 Strategic Leadership Practices) to get things done through other leaders.

While the specific content can be customized to the requests of your organization, our Strategic Leadership Programs use three ingredients:

  1. A strong emphasis on business simulations for participants to practice new skills
  2. An action learning project to deploy the practice of leadership skills learned in the modules
  3. Frequent feedback and feedforward during Module I and in the interim between Module I and Module II.
