At the Xavier Leadership Center, we believe that becoming an effective leader is a journey defined by experience, self-awareness and personal development. Leaders need to develop and refine their abilities throughout their career. The Leadership Foundations Certificate program is about great leadership and you. We help you understand what makes a leader great and how to incorporate that knowledge into how you lead—in a way that makes sense and is authentic to you.
The Leadership Foundations Certificate is a hands-on, multi-layered learning experience. The overall approach is to provide framework for understanding who you are as a leader, where you want your team or organization to go and how you are going to get there.
Three Key Elements of the Program:
Part I. Leadership-in-Action Project – To help you frame your learning and apply it to your work when you complete the Leadership Foundations Certificate, there is a hands-on Leadership-in-Action Project. This project is the Leadership Competency Assessment that is used throughout the Foundations of Business Leadership Program to enhance personal leadership awareness and growth.
Part II. The 5-Day Essential Leadership Experience – Includes 5 days of core leadership curriculum (Foundations of Business Leadership, Influencing Without Authority, Leading Sustainable Change and Coaching and Mentoring for Performance Excellence) held with a single cohort group from diverse industries and experiences. This program provides an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning, which we believe is essential for leadership development.
Part III. The 3-Day Individual Experience Electives*– Participants choose any 3 single-day electives in areas of Leadership In-Depth, Enhancing Personal Effectiveness, and Broadening Business Knowledge Programs. This allows participants to customize their leadership and learning experiences to address their specific needs and situations.
