Theories in Practice is pleased to announce The Conscious Leadership Program
What is the Conscious Leadership 360 Program?
The customized 360 developmental feedback program is designed to expand a participant’s self awareness in significantly researched competencies (and derailers) that define conscious leaders. Participant’s will grow immensely through a focused coaching process resulting in an actionable development plan that guides the individual in building their capability to become a more conscious leader and achieve future business objectives. Follow-on coaching is added to acquire deep and lasting developmental change which allows leaders to identify and practice new beliefs and behaviors, develop self-coaching techniques and create a feedback infrastructure for long term leadership development support.
How does the program work?
The 360 development is facilitated in multiple phases:
- Phase I takes the participant through a 360 degree assessment process using a customized leadership profile, and supports the participant in creating a personalized, actionable development plan based on the results. Time: approximately 6 weeks.
- Phase II provides participants with weekly coaching support to begin the process of identifying new and more conscious beliefs and behaviors, and allows them to process and practice those behaviors in a safe environment. The outcomes include significant change based on developmental feedback and the creation of a personal ”board of mentors” to provide on-going feedback and support. Time: approximately 3 months
- Phase III follow-on coaching cements the new behaviors creating lasting change for the participant. Participants typically meet with their coach once every two weeks for a focused, personalized coaching session while they are continuing to integrate new behaviors into their leadership style. This extension of Phase II allows for the development of self-coaching techniques to the participant which can be utilized for a lifetime Time: 3, 6, or 9 months
Who would benefit from this program?
The program is recommended for Emerging Leadership through Senior Executives. Individuals who want to learn how their leadership style is being perceived and are ready to make significant, and long-term change make excellent candidates. Our team utilizes a wide variety of assessments including The Leadership Circle 360, the Hogan Assessment series, and a variety of customized assessments based on the Harvard Business Competencies, and more recently researched competencies such as emotional intelligence, trust, consciousness, authenticity, and transcendent leadership. We choose the 360 competency assessment that is appropriate for the client’s level; however, each of these assessments has been developed with significantly researched competencies and include character traits and derailers in addition to attributes which have been identified for years as requirements for great leaders. The competencies which are currently being measured through the Conscious Leadership Program support individuals in making lasting change in their leadership capability because they are linked to core behaviors and problem solving ability.
Our current 360 system is built on ”state of the art” technology, is utilized through the internet and email, and is supported 24x7 by a global technical support organization. Our team of professionals can easily customize a survey that is specific for your organization or function including recently researched competencies, competencies which are accepted globally in your organization, and competencies that are linked to high performance for a specific function.
During a recent case study, we customized a 360 consisting of high performance company behaviors, conscious leadership behaviors, and behaviors linked to a key talent program. Coupled with coaching and our new class, Authentic Leadership, participants gained clarity around both the strengths and gifts that they possessed that needed to be leveraged, and behaviors and patterns that needed to be changed.
