Based on the results of a 360 assessment, leaders will work to hone their leadership capability while developing supportive relationships with like-minded peers.

This intensive program, customized to meet your particular needs and goals, will give you the opportunity to assess your leadership in the context of your organization’s culture and establish a clear development agenda. During the course of the program, with learning spread over several months’ time, you will work on both an important personal leadership goal and an organizational challenge.


The Mastering Executive Leadership program will enable you to accelerate your progress into breakthrough insights, new behavior, and greater levels of effectiveness. With a cohort of other senior leaders, you will engage in powerful learning experiences that enable you to experiment with new concepts, tools and behaviors, growing personally and expanding your capabilities and insights.


One-on-one leadership coaching between and during sessions is an integral part of the program and will give you the opportunity to reflect on and learn from your experiences and make appropriate adjustments. You will be supported and challenged to apply learnings in your current leadership role and will receive extensive feedback from faculty, assessments and other participants.

“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.”
David Kuehn
Executive Director, Cotuit Center for the Arts

 

“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.”

Steven Aukers
CEO

“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.”
