The Leadership in Action program is an opportunity for leaders to further develop and expand their leadership skills. Through a series of workshops and 1-on-1 coaching sessions, participants will learn critical actions the most effective leaders take. Participants will also set goals for themselves as they move through the program and share with their leadership coach the challenges and successes they experience.

Results from the CliftonStrengths assessment will be an important tool used by every participant to understand ways they can apply their unique strengths to be more effective leaders.

You will be expected to put into action what you have learned in a specific setting, or context, of your choice where you can use your leadership skills. Although you do not need to be a formal leader, you can use a formal leadership position as a context for applying what you are learning. You may also use an informal leadership context, where you are regularly and consistently influencing the same people to accomplish tasks and work together as a group. In total, you can expect to spend about 2.5 hours a week participating in this program. It is essential that you participate in at least 85% of all workshop and coaching sessions.
