WHY IS HAVING A STRONG FOUNDATION IMPORTANT?

The world around us is in constant motion -- the marketplace and the workplace are continuing to evolve.  There is no one “best” way to move forward; each of us is the leader of our own experience. 

You have the opportunity to design your future, including how you will respond to and navigate what you don’t directly control.  The design process incorporates how you define success and what you will do to continue to grow both professionally and personally.  This is not only about what you want to do, but why you want to do it, which then leads to alternatives on how you can get there.  Career development starts with personal leadership.  Partnering with a coach is a great way to design and establish your leadership foundation.

 

HOW CAN I BUILD AND STRENGTHEN MY FOUNDATION?

The Esprit de Merci Leadership Foundations Program provides an experiential learning environment combining individual self-paced assignments, small-group facilitated workshops and a one-on-one session with an experienced certified executive coach over a 12-week period to:

  • Gain insights from a deeper dive into your values, strengths and energy

  • Identify, articulate, and refine your authentic operating style as a leader

  • Improve your understanding of how your leadership style relates to others

  • Further understand and leverage the power of “hidden diversity” within a team

  • Increase awareness of how you lead with your energy – how you show up and respond to a given situation

  • Know how to adjust when things are out of alignment and potential courses of action

  • Develop your personal leadership Design Principles to use as a basis for goal setting, planning and decision making

  • Connect with fellow participants and become part of an ongoing Esprit de Merci community

 

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?

This program is recommended for, but not limited to, early to mid-career professionals who are ready to do the work, build community and have fun along the way.  Enrollment is limited to 6 participants.

 

WHEN CAN I START?

The next offering of the Leadership Foundations Program begins in June 2019.  Participants must be available to attend 4 bi-weekly group sessions and will schedule a personal one-on-one coaching session during the final month.
