Leadership Process: Motivated Explorer

Comprehensive program to empower new leaders

The strongest companies in today’s evolving world are those who invest in their leaders’ development. Strong employees promoted to management often find themselves unequipped to handle the very different demands of their new leadership role. This program helps these new leaders gain confidence in their practices as they begin to apply the new knowledge they gain through these interactive learning sessions.

LPMEThe Motivated Explorer program provides new leaders with an understanding of both the art and science of leadership. SSCA has been leading the way in delivering powerful leadership development workshop programs since the 1970s, making us uniquely equipped to deliver this training.

Participants gain both theoretical knowledge and practical direction in the skills they need to lead confidently in their specific environments. Mastery of these skills happens through an ongoing learning process that enhances leadership effectiveness and the ability to influence and interact with others.

Learning sessions are held virtually at this time. Each session is made up of two same-day 90-minute video conferences, with a 90-minute break in between.

The first group meeting invites a look in the mirror, to focus on your own strengths and challenges. The following month, the group meeting builds on the content from the first session, continuing a focus on self while incorporating how you can lead your team through the session topic. All virtual sessions are very interactive with chat, case studies, polling, breakouts, and video.

This year-long, results-oriented interactive program is designed for entry to mid-level managers and supervisors who want to understand the leadership behaviors to instill that will support senior leadership, deliver performance results, and motivate a healthy team climate.

The only thing I wish I had done differently is to take these courses much earlier in my career. The increase in effectiveness, the ability to align people has had an extraordinary impact on myself and the companies I serve.
