Leading Leaders



Success requires a purposeful change in mindset and approach.

Our Leading Leaders course is for those who truly desire to lead in a way that will expand your reach across your organization and have a lasting impact on your teams.

As a participant in this live virtual program you will engage with your peers and Lake Forest Center for Leadership faculty over a series of four 90-minute interactive sessions. Together, you’ll explore the mindset shift that happens when you’re tapped to lead a larger organization with direct reports who are also leaders themselves. It starts with a new focus to protect your time and your attention in order to concentrate on what your business needs to achieve exceptional results.

Leading Leaders Framework:

Shifting from an active agent to a catalyst, you’ll learn how to challenge your direct reports to step up to new responsibilities. In turn you’ll explore how you can free yourself from distractions and delegate in order to focus on what’s critical for your organization’s success.

Taking this course will help you:
  • Eliminate distractions to protect your focus on true business drivers as a leader of leaders.
  • Explore the mindset shift necessary to strategically shift control and take risks to build the business through liberating your leaders.
  • Assess your direct reports’ capabilities in three key areas: strategic capability, organizational influence and relationships, and talent management.
  • Coach direct reports to amplify their leadership potential, becoming more of a catalyst than an active agent in delivering business results.
  • Use a strategy model to identify key business drivers and refine the value proposition for your business.
  • Develop autonomy and accountability in direct reports to achieve business results using the Leading Leaders decision framework
