Purpose-Driven Leadership Training - Virtual


  • VIRTUAL Purpose-Driven Leadership Training

    54% of Business Leaders Cite Gaps in Their Leadership Pipeline as One of Their Top Challenges

    This six-session leadership training program has been designed specifically for new and seasoned leaders to help them bring out the best in the people they lead. Purpose-Driven Leadership Training focuses on "turning the mirror" on leaders to recognize that their leadership has the greatest influence on those they lead and directly impacts engagement and retention. This training is NOT an event, but a catalyst for continuous development. There are six training sessions which focus on learning, developing, and applying new leadership skills.


  • The Six-Session Virtual Series Includes:

    SESSION 1: Leadership Essentials – It all begins with TRUST

    Trust and engagement go hand in hand. Organizations built around trust and respect see higher levels of engagement, productivity, and retention. Participants will look at their own trustworthiness as a leader and how it effects their teams.

    SESSION 2: Masterful Communication—Speak and listen to UNDERSTAND

    Different communication styles can bring about different outcomes. Masterful communication means being mindful of our communication, the outcome we want to achieve, and the impact it has on others. Participants are given the DISC assessment to identify their personal communication style while learning how to flex and adapt to other styles to foster stronger interpersonal relationships.  

    SESSION 3: Emotional Intelligence – The more you know, the more you GROW

    The most successful leaders know who they are, how they interact, and the impact they have on others. Participants will take the Emotional Intelligence 2.0 assessment and gain insight into their own management of stressful situations and how to respond vs. react to others.

    SESSION 4: Giving Feedback and Coaching Conversations – The key to ACCOUNTABILITY

    Leaders who know how to give feedback and have coaching conversations see a return of trust, personal and professional development of team members, and stronger accountability. Participants will learn models for how to give feedback and have coaching conversations to empower their teams to problem solve and take ownership of their development.

    SESSION 5: Situational Leadership – One style does NOT fit all

    An effective leader must customize their management style to motivate employees at all levels of development. Situational Leadership helps you develop a common language to direct, support, and coach your employees in a way which fosters competence and motivation.

    SESSION 6: Final Project

    This session is an integration of all five training sessions, reinforcing and using the knowledge, skills, and tools in a case study simulation. A certificate of completion is given along with a year-long action plan to promote continuous development.
