Since the return of Leadership Development Initiatives in October 2014, more than two hundred staff and faculty have attended at least one class and over one hundred and twenty-five employees have completed all six modules of LDI I: Foundations of Leadership, and received their certificates.
The “new” LDI was redesigned as a rolling, six-course program to give participants the flexibility to attend courses and complete the program on their own schedules. LDI I equips experienced, and aspiring, supervisors with practical leadership tools to build relationships, communicate effectively, delegate, plan, and conduct performance evaluations.
A central theme that weaves all LDI courses together is that a leader is the “CEO” of the work environment. They have the influence, and some say – responsibility, to create a workplace where people feel appreciated, accepted, valued, prepared, and connected so that they can do their best work.
Our more advanced leadership program, LDI II: Transformational Leadership, debuted this fall 2015 and offers leaders the knowledge and skills to build confidence, lead change, manage relationships up, down, and across, and develop coaching skills. Twenty-six staff and faculty completed the two-day intensive course thus far with thirteen more who are scheduled to attend the program in December.
