Just like sailing a boat, becoming an effective leader involves acquiring skill. Understanding leadership components, learning how to combine those components in just the right way, and practicing what you learn will lead to success.
The goal of the Principles of Leadership Excellence series is to provide participants with opportunities to learn the skills, behaviors, and knowledge needed for effective, successful leadership.
Inside-Out Leadership Model
Knowing that the most effective leaders have a clear understanding of themselves, our leadership model takes an inside-out approach. First, you’ll reflect and learn about yourself. You’ll learn how to apply methods to your own work. Then, you’ll use your knowledge to connect with others and apply leadership principles within the context of your organization and the surrounding community environment.
In this certificate series, you’ll build not six, not ten, but 18 leadership competencies. You’ll learn how to communicate well with your crew and how to respond when the wind is against you. You’ll know how to change course to head for a brighter shore and ensure that every adjustment you make to the sails continues to take you to your goal.
This series is not yawn-filled lecture and tedious note-taking. It’s an exciting ride, with interactive learning that teaches you how to be a better leader through self-assessment, skill practice, group discussion, and application to your day-to-day work. You can stay connected to everyone in the series between sessions through the life-line of an on-line community. Instructors with real-world leadership experience in a variety of industries are at the helm, making the topics come alive and helping you catch steady wind in your leadership sails.
MRA encourages you to take the series in sequence because skill sets in each session build upon what is learned in the previous session.
