Leadership Assessment Tools
Assessment tools help participants better understand their personal leadership style. You take these assessments prior to your arrival to the program and their results will guide your on-campus experience.
Divided into coaching clusters, participants serve as in-person peer mentors during the program and as members of a virtual developmental community afterward. Each coaching cluster will work with a professional coach to ensure progress is tracked and goals are achieved. You will also have the chance to work with a coach individually to define your personal goals and develop specific leadership competencies.
This comprehensive reference resource is the compass that will guide your progress through the institute. It contains personal application questions, space to note your “ah-ha” moments and additional post-program readings. In essence, the Action Journal tells you what you can expect from each session and how it applies to your workplace. It will also help you to understand what is expected of you.
