  • What is Leadership Effectiveness?
    Leadership effectiveness is the ability of a leader to effectively influence followers and other organizational stakeholders to reach the goals of the organization. In effect it is the measure of how well a leader is able to lead, manage, influence, guide, coach, and grow their team memebers. A leader influences others to achieve a common goal. A leader is someone who helps others reach their full potential.
  • Why is the program 10-months?
    ...Great question! Simply put, Rome was not built in a day, and neither are great leaders. At the Leader's GPS Academy we recognize everyone has a different learning style and because of that training should not be a one-off event. Developing new habits requires repetition, and memory retention is improved when information is regularly accessed and applied.
  • How is LEP different from other leadership programs?
    ...Many new and mid-level managers are being placed, or thrust, into leadership roles without any formal training, prior experience, or support system. There are many challenges these first-time leaders typically face including delegating, communicating effectively, or navigating the transition from peer to boss. With a shortage of resources, many company's today have taken on the "You'll have to figure it out" philosophy. Sadly, these leaders are being set up for failure, which is why more that 50% of new leaders fail within their first 18 months on the job. First-time leaders success depends on the actions they take to lead others within the organization towards achieving organizational goals. These actions, or choices leaders make set the tone for their leadership- which will either positively or negatively impact engagement, performance, productivity, and the culture- all of which has a direct effect on the bottom line. Being a leader is not an easy task. It comes with great responsibility. It is a big job. A big job like this requires leaders to posses big, badass skills, such as soft skills. Do not let the name fool you, soft skills are anything but soft. For many, soft skills are often much more difficult to master than hard or technical skills. The Leader's GPS Academy philosophy, we believe every leader deserves the opportunity to unlock their full potential, to discover and tap into thier strengths to build highly engaged and productive teams, and stand out as a trusted and valued business partner. Our goal is to help leaders tune into the tone! Understand the choices you have as a leader- and help you increase your leadership effectiveness. Our Leadership Effectiveness Program (LEP) is not a one-and-done type of program. Unlike some of the one-day or multi week programs, the LEP has been designed for long term results, to promote continued growth and development long after the completion of the program. LEP is structured around 8 of the most in demand competencies company's expect and look for in top talent. It can be lonely at the top, but you will feel anything but alone when you attend the LEP. We believe in fostering a safe learning environment where leaders feel comfortable taking risks, showing vulnerability, and sharing ideas and information with one another. We encourage our leaders to connect and engage with other participants in the program, to form lasting professional relationships. At The Leader's GPS we believe in keeping class sizes small in order to give personalized and specific attention to each leader.
