Leadership Training and Development

Leaders and managers often excel at setting direction or goals. However, being a leader of leaders requires a different perspective. Leaders of leaders must think strategically; a mindset to adapt, innovate and succeed. They tackle problems efficiently and creatively. Welcome challenges. And understand what the organization can do to grow into the future.

Become what your organization needs. A strong and capable strategic thinker who can motivate, align ideas to strategy, and inspire your teams to make significant contributions to the organization’s success with Davenport University’s Leader of Leader program. Training participants will take a pre-assessment (DNA® 25 Competencies Assessment) to identify their leadership profile. Throughout the 6-week program, participants examine how to use their leadership strengths to make the right strategic decisions.

The Leader of Leaders program includes three (3) personalized executive coaching sessions. This program is offered in a live-virtual format (using Blackboard Collaborate). Live virtual sessions are held every other week with coaching sessions conducted in the off-week.
