Executive Education - The Executive Coach

In the first workshop of our highly interactive and action-oriented program, The Executive Coach, you will explore, learn and use the key leadership competencies to enable you to lead high performance teams and organizations. We will take a step back from your hectic lives to take a personal strategic retreat, which we will repeat one day each quarter; it will be a strategic time-out so you can tune-up your life and business. This is a time to see yourselves and your business with a fresh, "big picture" perspective. With a combination of readings, discussions, cases, assignments, self-reflection and coaching, you will be immersed into a highly rewarding experience, attitudes and action for leading. You will be able to assess your leadership gaps through our leadership self-assessment tools, learn the key leadership competencies, and learn to coach other participants or leaders to produce high-performance results. Russell Disberger, CEO of Aspen Business Group, leads this workshop.
