Roundtable for Leaders

Accelerate & Retain Your Key Leaders

Designed for motivated mid-career leaders who are looking to take their career to the next level, The Roundtable for Leaders is a powerful leadership development process that harnesses the power of peer to peer interactions while also leveraging the benefits of one-on-one coaching and peer mentoring.

Working in small peer groups, leaders meet at regular intervals over 12 months. Led by an experienced group coach, they learn and share practical strategies and tools; discuss crucial issues related to their immediate challenges and opportunities; and, get feedback and insights to help them move forward against goals.

As part of the process, participants learn how to coach and mentor one another and how to accept and internalize feedback. Between sessions, they individually work on their
plans and, with the support of learning partners, implement new tools and strategies.
The process is powerful and intense and leads to sustained behaviour change. Personalized coaching around the core peer sessions provides further support on the leadership issues that matter most to them individually.

Graduates come away with clear direction on how to maximize their leadership and business impact, the confidence to make better decisions and lead with purpose and broadened capability in order to take on more.
