Leadership Development Workshop Series

What to Expect from the Leadership Development Series.

One of the most important elements of any organization’s success is the quality of its leadership. Today, all organizations ─ public, private and non-profit ─ live in a much more complex and competitive environment, not to mention, a world of work that may be very different, as a result of the COVID pandemic. To be successful, organizations need well prepared and well-equipped leaders. At Ahria, we think that it is not enough to train leaders on new concepts and skills. We believe it is imperative to help individuals translate learning into action. Therefore, participants will leave each workshop with a concrete action plan and specific next steps to embed their learning into their day-to-day leadership approach.

In addition, participants will receive a followup coaching call to support their accountability for applying their new knowledge and skills, troubleshoot any barriers or challenges they may be experiencing, and encourage advancement of their identified action plan. Each Ahria Leadership Development workshop is delivered by an expert Ahria consultant who is a skilled trainer with practical experience and expertise related to the workshop topic. Participants will benefit from the breadth of experience and knowledge amongst all workshop participants throughout each interactive learning experience.
