    Discovering & Nurturing the Leader Within Us

    Program Description

    What are the traits & characteristics that distinguish high-performing CEO’s in today’s world?  What do each of us have in common with those high-performing CEO’s?  These will be the leading questions in our June program.  We will start with an infusion of findings from a recent psychometric study featuring results from three well-validated psychometric instruments (the 16pf, the OPQ-32, and the Hogan Development Survey) to compare over 900 CEOs from around the world to a broader database of senior executives.  

    We will learn about 3 key traits that tend to distinguish CEO’s – Initiative, Inference & Influence.   Our facilitator will engage us in remembering leaders whom we have seen demonstrate these traits, and those that have not.   We will then be challenged to reflect on our own minds and hearts, to identify our own levels of these 3 essential leadership traits, and what we might do to nurture and build those capabilities

    Full-day Workshop - Using Brain-Aware Approaches for Optimal Learning

    In this day-long interactive workshop, stories and analogies will illuminate how the adult brain learns without getting mired in unnecessary details of brain architecture. By understanding why and under what conditions the brain shies away from learning and resists new behaviors, you will discover new approaches for learning and growth. You will also explore ways to stimulate adults’ brains to be curious, to seek new learning and new ways of doing things. This workshop emphasizes brain-aware approaches that incorporate research on the embodied, analogical brain. Through a variety of activities, you will share and build on your current best practices, and you will explore new and expanded approaches to add to your repertoires for fostering optimal learning.

    The following learning objectives determine the outcomes of this workshop: 

    • Understand how the brain learns best
    • Discover why the brain (sometimes) resists new learning
    • Become familiar with new research on learning and the brain
    • Identify and expand effective brain-aware strategies to improve learning   

    Workshop leaders’ latest book Facilitating Learning with the Adult Brain in Mind: A Conceptual and Practical Guide (Jossey-Bass, 2016) will be distributed during the workshop at no additional cost.

    Applied Improvisation: A set of tools, skills, and mindsets to enhance leadership development and educate change agents

    The Corporate University Professional Development Network (PDN) is excited to announce our May program, Applied Improvisation: A set of tools, skills, and mindsets to enhance leadership development and educate change agents. You will have the opportunity to experience a variety of improvisational exercises and their debriefs.

    This will be an ‘on-your-feet’ session where you will discover how to use applied improvisation to enhance leadership development and change management in your organization or for your clients. This program will be led by Jackie Gnepp of Humanly Possible®.

    In keeping with the PDN’s practice of alternating between downtown and the suburbs, the May program will be in downtown Chicago.

    In a world of accelerating change, leaders cannot be successful doing only what leaders did in the past. Where there is neither script nor playbook, leaders and change agents must improvise and help their organizations to do the same. “Applied improvisation” is a set of tools, skills, and mind-sets that were developed by improvisational theater experts and modified for purposes of application to real-world challenges. Organizational leadership and change leadership are examples of such challenges and the focus of this program.

    The session includes:

    A brief overview of Applied Improvisation.

    A series of 3 to 5 improvisational exercises, including ones useful for teaching creative problem-solving, stakeholder perspective-taking, system dynamics, and other concepts and skills the group deems important for leadership and change.

    A debriefing of the learning outcomes of each activity, in both small and large group discussions.

    Reflection and sharing of how participants might use applied improvisation to help leaders build the capacity to respond to unforeseen challenges in ways that are positive for the organization.
