High School Principal
School District of Hillsborough County, Florida
Based on the most recent leadership research, the Leadership Institute focuses on a proven, self-awareness-based learning process to enhance leadership capacities. Graduates typically describe it as the most beneficial development experience they’ve ever had.
During the program, participants
- Receive a thorough appraisal of their leadership styles and behaviors from a wide range of observers--supervisors, direct reports, peers and other professional colleagues in the program
- Gain an honest and candid appraisal of personal strengths and developmental needs and identify potential career-derailment hazards
- Improve their ability to give and receive constructive feedback
- Understand the connection between their individual impact and their work group and organization’s effectiveness
- Learn how to lead through change
The Leadership Institute features in-depth, 360-degree assessment and participant feedback, videotaped sessions that help develop coaching and interpersonal skills, and a half day of leadership and team problem-solving challenges that allows participants to practice new behaviors in a supportive environment.
All feedback is strictly confidential, and each person receives a one-on-one session with a feedback coach to review the results of the week and to begin setting clearly defined goals.
