The Doniphan Executive Leadership Institute has announced its fall 2022 and spring 2023 sessions.
Co-sponsored by the EDC, the Institute develops leaders for Clay County and the Greater Kansas City area in private and public sectors. The six-month executive leadership program focuses on leadership development and vision. Key elements of the program include leadership development theory, 360 Degree Feedback Assessment with consultation, in-depth group discussions and experiential learning activities.
Held in the Pryor Center for Leadership Development at William Jewell College, the program also features personal interaction with leaders, focusing on vision and executive leadership. Consultants, mentors and professional trainers with specialized skills and backgrounds deliver the program to the participants.
Now in its 16th year, the Leadership Institute will commence its 32nd Cohort Sept. 9, 2022. The spring 2023 session will begin Jan. 5, 2023. The spring 2022 program began last month and will end its monthly sessions in June.
The program provides executive leadership training with a comprehensive, challenging program for tomorrow’s leaders in business and non-profit organizations.
Several recent graduates have been surprised at what they learned in the program, which is entering its 15th year. “They forced me to step out of my comfort zone and deal with my weaknesses,” noted on participant, an assistant manager for an area entertainment complex. “That surprised me.”
Another recent graduate, a bank vice president, agreed. “No one prepared me for the level of insight I’d gain about myself,” she said. “It was really dramatic.”
The program consists of one day each month for six months. With an aggressive list of reading required, program topics include 360 Degree Feedback, personal consultation and servant leadership. A major element involves direct interaction with veteran leaders who discuss their techniques and philosophies.
