Leadership Foundations Certificate Program


http://xavierleadershipcenter.com/programs/leadership-foundations-certificate/

The Leadership Foundation Certificate is a hands-on, multi-layered learning experience.  The overall approach is to provide framework for understanding of who you are as a leader, where you want your team or organization to go, and how you are going to get there.

There are 3 components to the program:

Part I. The 5-Day Essential Leadership Experience – Includes 5 days of core leadership curriculum held with a single cohort group from diverse industries and experiences.  This program provides an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning, which we believe is essential for leadership development.  The core curriculum is designed to enhance your effectiveness as a leader by developing capabilities in the areas of personal leadership, implementing strategy, influencing others, effective coaching and mentoring and leading sustainable change.

Part II. The 3-Day Individual Experience Electives – Participants choose any 3 single-day electives.  This allows participants to customize their leadership and learning experiences to address their specific needs and situations.  The 3 days of electives include areas such as communication, management skills, leadership development, innovation and change, as well as business fundamentals.  (See Program Outline for list of eligible programs.)

Part III. Leadership in Action Project – To help you frame your learning and apply it to your work when you complete the Leadership Foundations Certificate, there is a hands-on Leadership In Action Project.  This begins with a personal assessment of your leadership strengths, and ends with a leadership roadmap.
