Leadership Excellence Acceleration Program (LEAP) - Individual

Leadership Excellence Acceleration Program (LEAP)

The “Leadership Excellence Acceleration Program” is a 12-month, integrated program designed to equip senior-level women leaders with the full range of strategic, operational, and interpersonal capabilities needed to excel in today’s organization. The in-depth development experience combines ongoing assessments; hands-on learning, led by senior experts, during and in between sessions; peer-to-peer interaction; structured in-company mentoring; and individual coaching.

The Guttman Leadership Institute’s recognized expertise in leadership and organizational development ensures that participants will quickly and effectively optimize their current leadership talent and acquire the capabilities needed to meet future challenges.

Each program is limited to 12 senior-level women leaders who meet in two-day sessions, four times during the program year.

To qualify for this program, participants must be in a senior leadership position within their organization. They are also required to participate in all four quadrants of the program.

The curriculum begins with “you” as a leader:  Where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you want to go.  Participants will assess their leadership behavior, identifying both strengths and areas for improvement. This creates a development roadmap for participants and our facilitators.

The GLI Leadership Excellence Acceleration Program is divided into four quadrants:

  Quadrant 1:  Leading for High Performance
  Quadrant 2:  Leading High-Performance Teams
  Quadrant 3:  Leading by Influencing Across Your Organization
  Quadrant 4:  Leading Strategically

Following each Quadrant, participants return to their organizations guided by specific objectives and assignments intended to reinforce and extend their learning; ongoing assessments will monitor progress.  In addition, LEAP provides:  a structured mentoring program with on-site support; a world-class GDS leadership coach; ongoing research-based insights into women’s leadership issues and trends; and access to the network of peers with whom to exchange ideas and experiences.
