Leadership Triangle is now taking applications for the Fall 2016 class of its Transforming Leaders Program (deadline August 26th). Participants, take part in a series of sessions around the Triangle that develop their personal style of leadership and prepare them to take larger roles in their personal and professional life.
They will gather every other week with the full class to hear lectures and then break up into smaller groups for further discussion and activities. In the small group kinetic activities, the participants will have a chance to practice these skills, give each other feedback and build community with those in their groups. These activities are tailored to ensure the program’s lessons are absorbed experientially. Alumni will often reach back years later to something learned from these kinetic activities to apply in their lives and careers.
The Transforming Leaders Program doesn’t just have large group lectures and small group activities, but is also personalized with one-on-one coaching. “Alumni” Coaches, who receive 10 hours of training, meet with participants throughout the program to work with them individually on their goals and strategies for achieving them. This personal mentoring is another part of the program that makes it a top echelon leadership program in the area.
Participants start the program with a 360 assessment survey of their personal, social and leadership style. This survey gives feedback that works to close the gap between how one might perceive themselves and how others perceive them. It can be eye-opening to realize that a large part of what might be standing in the way of emerging as a strong leader is simply one’s false perception of oneself.
All of these elements, and many more, make it a very high value leadership experience for any emerging or seasoned leader. The Transforming Leaders Program is headed by Colonel Joe LeBoeuf, a retired Army Ranger and West Point Professor who now teaches at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. Assisting Colonel LeBoeuf are Mark Molitor, who is Director of Leadership Development for Leadership Triangle, as well as an alumni himself, and Prinny Anderson, an executive coach, educator and consultant. Other speakers and special guests also contribute throughout the program.
Prospective participants would attend sessions every other week from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for two and a half months – from September 21st to December 5th. These session take place across the Triangle area, at Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, NC State and other locations. The total cost is $1900 but there are scholarship available which are explained on the application page. If you are at a point in your life or career where you need to exhibit more leadership, consider this program. All graduates join the Leadership Triangle alumni family as Goodmon Fellows.
