Module 1: Power, Influence & Accountability

There’s a key difference between power and influence, and good leaders know the difference and how to use both effectively. They also know the impact of effective accountability. Understand how to use your points of power in a healthy and productive way and how to use influence, delegation and healthy accountability to achieve strategic outcomes.

Module 2: Executive Presence

Based on the concept of Executive Presence as a superpower, we’ll explore a model built around the acronym CAPE™: Communications, Actions, Polished Presence & Emotional Intelligence. Learn how to accelerate your impact and increase your self-awareness, skills and approach in all four categories.

Module 3: Navigating Toxic Cultures & Leaders

Toxicity in the workplace affects everyone. It negatively impacts productivity, performance and morale. In a word, it makes people miserable. How can we identify it and how might we manage through toxic situations? We’ll explore how to identify signs of workplace and leadership toxicity and how to effectively navigate it as leaders.

Module 4: The Leader as Coach

The best leaders develop their people by helping them identify and build on their strengths and abilities, and then helping them move through challenges to realize their potential. Using a practical coaching model, we’ll explore the importance of inquiry, listening, and feedback, and how a coaching mindset can help you better influence and lead others.

Module 5: Emotional Intelligence 1

Emotional Intelligence is often touted as one of the most important characteristics of good leaders. Building on our EQ learnings from the Executive Presence module, we’ll go deeper on two key components of Emotional Intelligence – Self-Perception and Self-Expression – using the EQ-i 2.0 model. Gain a greater awareness of your own EQ, explore ideas to develop it, and learn why EQ is so critical for leaders, aspiring leaders and strong team players.

Module 6: Emotional Intelligence 2

In this module, we’ll focus on three additional core components of Emotional Intelligence: Interpersonal Skills, Decision-Making and Stress Management. Build awareness and greater confidence in your EQ and explore ideas to develop your EQ in these categories.
