Leadership Development Communities

Customize Your Own Leadership Development Community for Your Organization’s Leaders

Since 2002, Leadership Outfitters has found that Leadership Communities recognize
and develop a growth mindset in leaders, fueling their success and contributions.
The synergy created in this vibrant learning approach enhances each participant’s
leadership. New tools. New practices. New skills. Wonder if this is for your company’s
leaders? Here are a few of the r
easons you’ll want to involve them:

  • They want to transform their good leadership to great leadership, and need new ideas.
  • They want to more effectively leverage the strengths on their team.
  • They want to find out how they get in their own way unconsciously and change that.
  • They want to exude confidence and composure when under pressure.
  • They have been selected as a successor to a more senior position and would like to improve their viability for success.
  • They have a habit they want to change, but don’t know how.

The Leadership Development Community embraces this belief: learning takes place when in a community of peers, sharing input from everyone, not just the program coach.
It’s in group coaching that we foster connections to receive insights and to contribute to each other’s leadership and business mastery. It is a community in the best sense of the word.

What It Is:

The monthly sessions of the Leadership Development Community teach key leadership tools, practices, and skills with ongoing learning among peers. It is a transformational process that ignites personal effectiveness as a leader because it is application focused and customized to the needs of your business leaders.

The value of the spaced repetition, meeting monthly with peers to learn and reinforce applications, translates to behavioral change that is sustainable. It lasts. You’ll share insights. You’ll share experiences. You’ll conduct live problem solving and develop long-lasting relationships built on mutual respect and fun.

What You Get:

Customized timing and learning which includes:

  • A full day to kick off the Leadership Development Community, 8:30 a.m. -5:00 p.m.
  • A 4-hour or 6-hour session each month.
  • 90-minute Partner Pair Meetings conducted between each monthly session with a different partner each month.
  • One 1-hour individual coaching session for a just-in-time need during the program.
  • One 1-hour individual coaching session upon graduation.
  • All materials, books, and refreshments.

Ideal Participants Are Those Who:

  • Are in leadership positions.
  • Enjoy learning with a small group of fellow leaders in a community of trust.
  • Want to reach a new level of leadership effectiveness and influence.
  • Want to find out how they get in their own way unconsciously and change that.
  • Realize they may contribute to the breakdowns and miscommunications that occur, and are willing to look at themselves to understand how that happens.

We know how busy business leaders can be, so we have designed this in-house Leadership Development Community to be respectful of that.  In addition to the time leaders will spend in each monthly session, there is a 90-minute Pair Partner Meeting between each monthly session to discuss the brief homework assignment.  Past participants have told us their monthly Pair Partner Meetings are one of their favorite aspects of our program. In these meetings, they enjoy discussing applications, learning more about each member of the community because their partner changes each month, and keep the leadership learning alive in between sessions.

We discuss where you started based on the goals you set for yourself, and how you would rate your growth since then.  That includes re-visiting:

  • What has been the impact on your leadership?
  • How are you different today than when you started the LDC?
  • What are the top three practices you are going to take on to sustain the development of your leadership?
  • Any concept, practice, or skill that you would like to discuss for more mastery?

Then we create a plan together for how to best move forward in your leadership effectiveness.
