Leading Others consists of a kickoff, three modules and a closing day. You will also be doing peer consultation and development projects, plus you’ll have a buddy and a mentor to discuss things with. Each day has a specific focus. The full program, from intake to closing day, takes 7 months.
Upon completion of the entire program, you will receive a certificate. One that’s worth sharing – on your LinkedIn page, for example.
We start with an online introduction, during which you will meet the other participants. We will give you a preview of the program and you will have ample opportunity to ask questions. You and your trainer will get to know each other.
BROUT LEADERSHIP LAB
During your personal leadership lab, our professional assessors will help you map out your development. We’ll identify your pain points on the various leadership aspects of this program. Are there any areas in which you’re experiencing friction or getting stuck, or that might even hurt? All those things we’ll uncover. Our approach is based on the idea that it is better to spend 85% of your time on identifying your challenges, as this will leave you 15% to solve them. At the end of your personal leadership lab, you’ll create a development plan, identifying what you need to develop in all areas. For each leadership aspect you determine where you are now, what your strengths are, and what the areas are in which you can develop.
PERSONAL & COACHING LEADERSHIP
“People do as I do, not as I say.”
Leading others starts with leading yourself. You get to work on your alter ego. How are you standing in your own way? In what ways are you fooling yourself? How are you maintaining ineffective patterns in your leadership? And what do you need to break free from all this? We look at ineffective and effective behavior. The process is guided by the questions: “Who am I as a leader?” and “What do I do that causes this?”
“How do I get them to…?”
Together with your buddy, you’ll work on developing coaching leadership. How can you coach your buddy on their development plan? This is what we’ll be working on. You’ll be applying these insights in practice, because that’s what it’s all about, after all.
“How can I help?”
What is valuable to you? You’ll use the value pyramid to determine to what extent you live and lead according to your values. We’ll also discuss what to do when you have conflicting values. We’ll be working with the 10 characteristics of servant leadership. Because true leaders serve their team(s). You’ll start to move from control to trust, and from management to new leadership.
“I’m only human.”
We believe that you can only be a good leader if you show your vulnerable side. You will discover what your limiting beliefs are and where you still have some issues to solve. We will work with the 7 elements that help shape trust. We will also be looking at your capacity. Do you perform to the best of your ability? How autonomous are you, to what extent do you use your competencies, and are you truly involved? From focusing on you, we make the connection to your team. You will learn about the 4 problem teams and the pecking order. From your place of vulnerability, you’ll explore what you do as a leader that makes others do what they do.
LEADERSHIP & CHANGE
“Those who stand for nothing fall for everything.”
Change happens all the time. What kind of change do you stand for? We will be exploring this using the BENTO model. Based on the insights developed by Annemarie Mars (the 5 forces that lead to successful change), you’ll identify what your team needs to achieve the change you have in mind. And of course we’ll be looking at you as a leader. You choose what you’re going to do and what you’re not going to do. To get others on board with change, you need a good story. You will learn about the power of speech and we will look at your leadership communication. How do you interact as a leader? How do you ensure that you move and inspire others? Those two things are essential if you want people to take action.
“In moving others, I create a connection.”
Time to harvest! Everyone gives a final presentation. You’ll share your personal story. You’ll take stock of the steps you’ve taken and those you’re going to take. You’ll look back on an intensive and inspiring journey. The second set of 360-degree feedback you’ve gathered visualizes your development. You should be proud of yourself. We certainly are! That is why you’ll receive a personal certificate from us.
After your personal leadership lab, you’ll start on your 360-degree feedback. You can use this as a baseline to see where you’re currently at on the various leadership aspects. At the end of the program, you’ll do another 360-degree feedback. This will show you your development. Who will you invite to provide feedback as a catalyst for your growth? You decide which 3 people you want to ask for feedback, plus you’ll answer the questions yourself as well.
An important part of the program is peer consultation. At the start of the program, we put together groups of peers and you’ll be introduced to a number of peer consultation techniques. With your peer consultation group, you’ll organize your own meetings in between training days 2, 3 and 4. During these sessions, you’ll discuss and anchor the insights you’ve gained.
