Leadership Transformation

What makes great leaders and great leadership? What are the steps along the path of leadership development? How do we cultivate leadership transformation?

These questions serve as the foundation for Language of Leadership, a powerful program that calls forth the unique nature of each leader.

wob-2013What makes great leaders? The quality of our leadership resides within us — within our unique way of being. Way of Being is the embodiment of our beliefs, language, reactions, moods and emotions. It’s the way we show up and engage with the world and it’s often the unconscious driver of our actions and results. Language of Leadership is a six-month, personalized program with three facilitators to ensure each participant gets the focus and customized information they need to shift their way of being to align with the results they desire.

“I wish I had attended this program 10 years ago! I’ve participated in many leadership development training programs during my 36-year career in federal service but Language of Leadership integrates professional and personal development in a powerful way I’ve not experienced in any other program! I learned how to shift my Way of Being to be more in alignment with how I want to lead and I learned how to coach employees for the betterment of the organization.” K. Titus; BLM District Manager, Salem, OR

We must learn to observe ourselves, identify the outcomes we want and gain insight into how we get in our own way. Finally, we must have the willingness and courage to take the action necessary to shift our way of being to align with those outcomes. To support participants along the path of leadership transformation, Language of Leadership provides customized exercises and practices to help each participant develop and integrate new behaviors and responses that move them toward their desired outcomes.

“Learning about my leadership Way of Being had an immediate, positive impact on all of my relationships! And this is just the beginning — the dividends from Language of Leadership just keep paying off. I’m grateful, grateful, grateful.” T. Sizemore, General Manager, Hult Center of the Performing Arts

That’s why each participant at Language of Leadership has a six-month partnership with a certified coach and receives a personalized coaching program designed to help them leverage their unique Way of Being to expand their leadership capacities, and create the results they desire.

“Language of Leadership is an outstanding program! It’s a dynamic leadership growth opportunity that pushes participants to turn the camera onto themselves in order to become better leaders. T. Keffer, Director of Human Resources, Oregon Community Credit Union
