A Unique Program for Senior Leaders
|Today’s leaders need a competitive edge to navigate and manage the pace of constant change. Flexibility, adaptability and skills working with others are no longer enough to accomplish business goals. It is essential that today’s leaders know how to get the best from their colleagues, their organizations, and from themselves.|
Few development programs actually teach leaders how to leverage their highly developed competencies and apply new skills that promote individual and group success. GISC’s Leadership program uses a well-established and proven approach for increasing personal impact that will expand participants’ knowledge about themselves as leaders—helping them build on personal strengths and develop the potential of those with whom they work.
GISC’s Leadership program is tailored to address both a personal leadership challenge and an organizational leadership challenge selected by each participant. The program provides a range of learning methods, including experiences which promote immediate insight, opportunities for intensive skill practice, plus time to reflect on one’s own leadership profile within an organization. Each cohort’s success is supported by seasoned faculty and coaches who believe that all leaders can increase the range of their individual leadership style to achieve greater influence and impact.
Session One: Understanding Myself as a Leader
Session Two: Leading Groups & Influencing Change
Individual Leadership Coaching
“This is the first training where I practiced and experienced leadership instead of being ‘taught.’ Great, great program! Fran and Gerry are fabulous!”
“The GISC faculty were able to adapt the program to perfectly match our group’s needs”
“I was the only director of a small nonprofit arts organization in a room full of major business executives.... The impact each of them had on my approach to leading my organization in the future was profound. The course at GISC was one of the richest experiences of my life.”
“While companies spend time focusing on management and financials, they often ignore the most important elements: people and leadership. The Leadership in the 21st Century experience was one of the most profound personal and professional experiences that I have ever had. The impact was such that I have implemented a full leadership program in my company based on what I have learned in Gestalt. We are working to make Gestalt leadership a “way of being” for us - a central component of our culture, and a primary driver of our future success.”
“Leadership in the 21st Century changed the way I thought about being a CEO in a family business. I had taken many leadership training courses over the years, but being able to apply them in a family business was difficult. In this program I learned so much about myself as a leader through feedback from the other participants. What stuck with me most, however, was a better understanding of the importance of awareness within a group. I am now able to see my team as a system, and understand how I can support them to be a better team. Having an executive coach between sessions helped me stay focused and practice what I learned during the first week. I now have confidence to handle any type of resistance, turn it into constructive energy and use the power of emotion to get the best results out of my teams.”
