THE LEADERS COLLABORATIVE

For experienced leaders

The Leaders Collaborative is a dynamic, cohort-based experience designed for those in established leadership roles in the Greater Pittsburgh area. You will join business leaders, not-for-profit leaders and church leaders for six days of learning – the first Tuesday and Wednesday of each month for three consecutive months. Your learning from collaborative facilitators and from fellow participants will forever change your perspective of leadership. 

Leaders Collaborative participants will experience a distinct faith-based approach to leadership development that includes:  

  • Historical case studies of transformational leaders 
  • Proven leadership assessments
  • World-class leadership skill-building courses from Development Dimensions International (DDI)
  • Q&A sessions with business, not-for-profit and church leaders who are making a difference in our city
  • Connections with other established leaders and with next generation leaders that will positively impact your leadership effectiveness and impact
  • Small-group coaching to synthesize your learning into practical application

 

Building and Maintaining a Healthy Culture (Days 1-2)

No matter how inspiring your organizational vision or how brilliant your strategic plan, you will not be able to attract, develop and retain the people you need without building a healthy culture/work environment. Even if you cannot transform the culture of your entire organization, you can build and maintain a healthy culture for those in your sphere of influence. You will learn to better understand your God-given leadership strengths through the results of your Gallup StrengthsFinder Assessment and how to leverage your leadership strengths to create a healthy workplace culture. 

 

Helping Others to Achieve their Potential (Days 3-4)

Your role as a leader is not just about unearthing and using your talents, skills and abilities. Your role is also to do everything you can to help those you lead to unearth their talents, skills and abilities. In fact, your success - and ultimate legacy - as a leader is determined by how effectively the people you lead carry on the mission of your organization when you are not there. You will learn about your core motivations as a leader through the results of your M-Core Leadership Assessment and how that impacts you as a coach and mentor. 

 

Leading Organizational Change (Days 5-6)

In our rapidly changing world, accepting the status quo is the greatest threat to your organization’s long-term success. As one leader put it, “If the rate of change on the outside of your organization exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near.” That is why change leadership skills that help others to adapt to and embrace change are becoming a vital part of every leader’s skill set. You will learn about your natural leadership style through the results of your DISC Leadership Assessment and how that affects your approach to change leadership. 

 

Please note that Leaders Collaborative participants typically have five or more years of experience in a formal leadership/management role and are in a current leadership role with direct reports.

THE EMERGING LEADERS COLLABORATIVE

For Next Generation leaders

The Emerging Leaders Collaborative is a dynamic, cohort-based experience designed in partnership with L3 Leadership for Greater Pittsburgh’s next generation leaders. You will join other high potential leaders from our city’s businesses, not-for-profits and churches for six evenings of learning – the first Tuesday and Wednesday evening of each month for three consecutive months. Your learning from collaborative facilitators and from fellow participants will forever change your perspective of leadership. 

Emerging Leaders Collaborative participants will experience a distinct faith-based approach to leadership development that includes:  

  • Historical case studies of transformational leaders 
  • Proven leadership assessments
  • World-class leadership skill-building courses from Development Dimensions International (DDI)
  • Q&A sessions with business, not-for-profit and church leaders who are making a difference in our city
  • Connections with other established leaders and with next generation leaders that will positively impact your leadership effectiveness and impact
  • Small-group coaching to synthesize your learning into practical application

 

Achieving Your Leadership Potential (Evenings 1-2)

When you, as a Next Generation Leader, better understand your leadership potential and how to grow into that potential, it benefits your career, your organization and our city.  You will expand your understanding of how you can heighten the effectiveness and impact of your leadership, no matter what your current role in your organization. You will learn to better understand your God-given strengths through the results of your Gallup StrengthsFinder Assessment and how to leverage your strengths in the workplace. 

 

Building and Maintaining Trusting Work Relationships (Evenings 3-4)

What does trust have to do with your effectiveness and impact in your organization? Everything.  When you demonstrate trust and trustworthiness, you build partnerships that can lead to great things. By learning how to better build and maintain trust, you become a bridge builder and not a bridge burner, a skill that will benefit you in your workplace – and personal -  relationships for the rest of your life. You will learn about your core motivations as a leader through the results of your Enneagram assessment and how that impacts your ability to build and maintain trusting relationships.  

 

Maximizing Your Impact by Influencing Others (Evenings 5-6)

Learning how to influence others more effectively can change the course of your career and your life. That is why John Maxwell writes, “The best investment in tomorrow is to develop your influence today.” You will learn how to have a significant and positive influence on others no matter what your position or job title. You will also learn about your natural leadership style through the results of your DISC Leadership Assessment and how that affects your approach to influencing others.
