Soft skills In the 21st century especially, technical skills have become commodities. Research clearly shows that leaders increasingly need to be self-aware, situationally aware and bring high-level collaboration skills and empathic thinking.
The ELM program is focused exclusively on soft skills. Program participants tend to already be deep in technical skills, but need to increase their ability to develop relationships, leverage the work of teams and envision the future. We’re on it.
Cohort-based Adult learning benefits from a social environment, with lot of opportunities to reflect on one’s own circumstances and experiences, but in the context of others who are in a roughly similar situation.
The ELM program involves peer groups of roughly eight individuals in each cohort. The diversity of roles, company environments and personality types creates a dynamic learning environment that can’t be replicated within a single company.
Customization and application Leadership development at 30,000 feet is ineffective. It must address the unique circumstances of each person and emphasize the application of new skills in the emerging leader’s particular environment.
The ELM program utilizes world-renowned thought leadership material, but in the context of each emerging leader’s specific situation. Individual assessments also promote this, as do challenging projects in both years of the program.
