Leaders are active learners. This session uses the research from David Kolb to clarify the essence of learning (i.e. how one takes in information and makes meaning from the information). Through a variety of engaging activities, participants not only understand their own learning style, but also, how to value learning styles of others. Practical applications (e.g. presentations) for engaging all learning systems are provided, as well as approaches to develop one’s leadership capability.
- “Very practical. I can readily use this today when I return to my work”
- “Very enthusiastic approach”
- “Great balance of learning more about myself, and applying it immediately”
Typical audience: Participants in a leadership development program
Length: 2 hours – 1 day
“To every person there comes in their lifetime that special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for the work which could be their finest hour.” – Winston Churchill
What is it about a leader that captures your trust and incites action?
“Leadership presence is the assessment others have of our capacity to act powerfully and skillfully in the present moment.” This quote from Richard Strozzi-Heckler, founder of the Strozzi Institute, is the focus that Mary Jo Greil brings to this leadership development program. Through group participation and experiential learning, Mary Jo introduces leadership practices that can produce proven results. Takeaways include: a leadership development framework that can be applied to every day work, a common language regarding leadership that increases clarity of communication, and experience deepened relationships through intentionally managing trust.
“Mary Jo delivers a thought-leadership session which is a “masters-level on leadership development.”
