Workshop: Leadership Practices Inventory

November 28, 2014 - November 29, 2014
4:00 PM
Columbia Global Centers | Rio de Janeiro

The first half of this module provides leaders with the information they need to realize their full leadership potential.  Prior to the session, leaders will have an opportunity to complete the Leadership Practices Inventory™-Self and submit feedback from staff under their supervision.  An extensive 16-page report will be provided with an accompanying workshop.  Participants will complete a workbook that will help them make the most of their LPI Feedback Report, appreciate how others see their leadership behavior and understand how to use that information to become the most effective leader possible.

This module with supplementary text is about how leaders mobilize staff to want to get extraordinary things done in their organizations.  It’s about the leadership required to transform values into actions, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, separateness into solidarity and risks into rewards. This session helps leaders create the climate in which people turn challenging opportunities into remarkable success.

The second half is a guided experience to assist leaders in the construction of their leadership development plan.  During the first session, the participants will have gone through a series of activities to help them understand the information in their feedback report, make a short-term improvement plan and strategize on how to share the results. 

This section assists in the development of a long-range plan that is customized to meet individual needs.
