Key Organizational Principles Used in the Elusive Leadership Programs
May 12th from 11am - 1pm at Luganos Ristorante
Lunch will be served.
Networking from 11-11:30 am.
The Elusive Leadership program has demonstrated proven success in building high performance teams capable of making transformational change. Implemented just five years ago, the program has successfully revitalized teams in conflict, rebuilt teams during transitions and mergers, and strengthened change management efforts to make transformational changes after years of static resistance. The program draws on 20 years of research and 30 years of practice in both the academic and “real world.” The program takes a multidisciplinary approach that integrates the best principles from Adult Development, Community Development, Psychology, Business Management, Communication, Group Dynamics, and Organizational Development.
This presentation will give a "behind the scenes tour" of the techniques used to strengthen the impact of the program. Come learn about the Elusive Leadership approach, the key principles used in the design of the program, and explore how you might use these techniques to strengthen the impact of your organization development programs.
