Personal Leadership Impact

Participants will undergo an individual 360-degree assessment, 1-1 coaching, and peer-based collaboration on their leadership mindset and awareness. This program leverages the Leadership Agility Maturity Framework introduced in the CAL 1 Workshop and helps leaders see their own leadership experience and mindset in practice.

“I am much more aware of myself and my team. The team is taking more ownership and accountability to accomplish the mission and my manager is seeing the results from the team’s behavior directly.”

2018 Program Participant, Martin Still
