About the course

Meta-Leadership for Emerging Leaders in Crisis provides the participant with the knowledge, skills, and tools to lead effectively in a crisis. Through lectures, group discussion, and team exercises participants will increase their understanding of how to strengthen their internal leadership capacities, inspire those around them to follow, enhance techniques to lead up, effectively engage with partners and key stakeholders, improve their crisis communication competencies, and drive their teams and organizations toward higher achievement. These new and improved skills will be tested in a dynamic group exercise at program conclusion to ensure they can be fully utilized when the learner returns to the workplace.

This curriculum will help participants to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of Meta-Leadership and how to apply the dimensions
  • Strengthen crisis communication skills by differentiating between non-crisis vs crisis situations in engaging all stakeholders
  • Develop skills to assess, engage teams, create a plan of action, and measure success, in order to drive sustaining, high achievement in organizations
  • Grow personal leadership style by learning how to cultivate relationships, resolve conflict, and develop others
  • Gain practical application of skills taught by participation in dynamic learning sessions
  • Utilizing mentoring as a tool to support lifelong learning

As a candidate for the ELC program and part of your application you will be required to individually choose a mentor.
