"The only way to discover the limits of the impossible is to go beyond them into the possible."

--Arthur C. Clarke


  • Obtain written approval from your supervisor. We will meet in half-day sessions, with the exception of the first session which is longer, every 2-3 weeks. You are expected to be at each of these sessions. The session dates are identified in a Participant Agreement that you and your supervisor will sign upon your acceptance into the program.
  • Commit on average 4 hours/week through the duration of the leadership series beyond class  time. This time will be spent completing assignments related to the exploration and development of leadership outside the formal meetings. These activities are likely to include:

- reading
- journaling
- listserv discussion
- small group conversation
- observation
- being coached
- taking on a self-directed project that can enhance current work projects

  • Participate in both traditional and non-traditional learning formats to explore both leadership and self through leadership principles. The series is designed to be both a personal and collective experience. Working with a performance coach to elevate your experience is one non-traditional format that may be requested.
  • Fully commit to the activities and come prepared to the classroom sessions. You will be expected to be an active learner and commit to working with minimal direction. A framework will be provided with many options to pursue. You'll be the one to choose what works for you.
  • Participate in any assessments related to the program. The successful design and development of Journey into Leadership continues as a result of the constructive feedback of participants. Your feedback will be requested through written, oral or electronic means.
