Approach Three pillars for growth

Self-awareness: The Cornerstone of Strong Leadership

To grow beyond their specialist reflexes, leaders first need to clearly understand their own needs, strengths, challenges, and goals. No matter where participants are at in their introspective journey, the Leadership Challenge invites them to deepen and articulate their values, their leadership approach, and the role they play in the success of their teams and companies.

Courage: The Key to Lasting Engagement

While a boss may move faster alone, a leader knows how to use their listening skills and kindness as a tool for going farther with their team. To help each participant fully embrace their role as a team leader, the Leadership Challenge allows them to flex their influence, cultivate their adaptability, prepare for difficult conversations, and develop the relational courage needed to build innovative, collaborative, and productive teams.

Impact: The Multiplying Effect of Strong Leadership
Accordeon's chevron

Being a rallying leader goes beyond simple team management, it’s in your ability to empower each collaborator and infuse daily actions with meaning.

In a complex and, political professional landscape, leadership involves being able to understand and act with discernment. By providing the right information, the necessary support, and the positive reinforcement their teams need, Leadership Challenge graduates give energy and momentum to projects, therefore fostering a culture of innovation and productivity.

METHODOLOGY An Opportunity to Take Action

If behavioural transformation theory serves as our core methodology, then self-defined challenge, microlearning techniques, introspection/action alternations, role models, and co-development squads are our tools. Since action is the only way to sustainably adopt new behaviours, our workshops and web conferences create safe spaces to ask targeted questions, reflect on desired outcomes, adopt an open-minded approach, and test out new practices before integrating them.
