Who Attends

Because those who attend represent a broad diversity of reasons, this leadership training program has to be and is highly personalized. We limit the number of participants to typically no more than eight attendees who have expressed interest in either development or intervention. Attendees typically:

  • Are being groomed for more advanced leadership positions (e.g., succession planning / promotions) and thus require an intensive management leadership training experience.
  • Represent those executives who value training while you highly value them, and you therefore wish to retain them by offering opportunities for professional development.
  • Are seeking to enhance their credibility, visibility and presence in addition to enhancing their abilities to value, grow, motivate and inspire their employees/associates/family members. Their focus is on creating greater trust, cohesion, and collaboration.
  • Represent those executives who are highly valued for their industry savvy/technological knowledge yet have received mixed reviews regarding the strength of their interpersonal relationship dynamics or soft skills.
  • May be experiencing morale and/or attrition problems within his or her area due to ineffectual human systems skills/people skills and thus seek to enhance their emotional intelligence. One measure of lowered morale is productivity/revenue slippage.
  • May be experiencing some level of distress in his or her personal life, whether that speaks to divorce or impending divorce, parenting issues, personal issues (grieving the death of a family member, health issues, or other unnamed personal stressors). Your home life affects your work life and overall wellbeing. Having a licensed clinical psychologist and leadership expert facilitate your workshop is a real plus, as evidenced within the video and signature testimonials where both personal and professional takeaways are referenced multiple times.

Participants in all of our executive training programs represent a purposeful mix of experienced executives, managers and staff leaders from a broad range of organizations. In management leadership training programs, a mixture such as this has been shown to create the most robust outcome experiences and results. After all, and for an example, CFOs must work with others beyond the financial arena and throughout different levels within the organization. Note. Some people attend this leadership training program for purely personal development reasons, as noted above.

Whether you are already highly valued and effective, or struggling with some human systems issues or simply wanting executive coaching services, our leadership training program is designed to meet you where you are and take you to where you need to be. Furthermore, because your personal life affects your work life and vice versa, our programs address both arenas of your life regardless of your focus. This is due to the fact that wherever you go, there you are! In other words, once you have made adjustments based upon feedback of what is currently not working, those changes get internalized and thus manifest themselves at work, home and any other social setting you engage.

Why Attend?

The success of The Leadership Trust®, as defined by our client’s success, is derived from bridging theory (academic) and practicality (applied knowledge) and has evolved from thousands of hours of workshop with thousands of executives representing diverse backgrounds and industries over many years while using multiple processes.

Our lessons learned and overall domain knowledge span numerous specializations including emotional intelligence, communication, human systems, conflict resolution, ethics, multiple social psychology and personality theories, 360+ feedback and self awareness. All of these processes are leveraged as powerful tools within each workshop to address your unique needs and goals.

Finally, the personal gains are beyond the usual scope of leadership programs in general, with participants reporting life-altering experiences such as eliminating a lifelong history of stuttering, out-of-control anger, nail-biting, chronic back pain, headaches, asthma attacks, psychotropic usage (e.g., anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, etc.), and writer’s block. This underscores the trend we are currently seeing across prestigious medical centers who are espousing holistic, integrative medicine. It also embraces the latest quantum physics findings reported by the Wall Street Journal since 2004.

Location

Our executive training program and executive coaching services are located in the Triangle area of North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill). The consulting wing (teambuilding and organizational development projects) take place in whatever states or provinces our clients reside. Specific information regarding the location and accommodations will be provided at the time of initial inquiry or registration. Due to the nature of the program, participants are asked to reside at the hotel or conference center prescribed by The Leadership Trust® to obtain maximum benefits from the program.

Investment

Tuition: Starting in January, 2016, The Leadership Trust® raised its fee for the first time in a decade, from $6950 to $7500, of which the tuition is now $6000, which includes everything except transportation and dinner. Check with us to see if you qualify for a scholarship, a partial scholarship, a scout rate, group rate, or special packet rate with payments over time without interest. This fee also includes 4 weeks of post-workshop accountability support, given research shows that it takes 21-30 days to jell a new behavior. Not only does each participant leave with an accountability partner, but he or she also has unlimited access to the program facilitator throughout this time.  These tuition-guaranteed workshops are purposefully small, typically no more than 8, in support of an inordinate amount of one-on-one coaching throughout the program. This explains our tuition-guarantee, for which not a single graduate has ever requested even a partial refund since the inception of The Leadership Trust®.

Hard costs:  Currently our hard costs at $1500 reflect conference center rates (hotel accommodations, conference fees, snacks, mid-day meals), assessments, and materials (books and CDs). Our job is to work with you to make it financially possible for you to attend the program of your choice. Also, anytime we get a break from our vendors, we are known to pass this on to you, dollar-for-dollar.

The Tuition-Guarantee:  Upon completion of the 5-day program, and after having followed our registration requirements and program guidelines, including the time-sensitive deadlines, if you are not satisfied with your higher level of self-awareness and emotional intelligence, we will refund the tuition portion of your payment.

Ninety-eight percent of our participants have described this leadership training program as the best personal and professional development program they have ever experienced throughout their career, and we attribute this rating mainly to our intellectual property, but also due in part to our small group size residing at the prescribed conference center throughout the length of the Personalized Leadership Development Program™. This affords the necessary, intensive focus that explains the distinguishing nature of our graduates’ testimonials.
