Are You Ready to THRIVE?
"In today’s business environment, if you’re not developing, you’re dying."
THRIVE is an intensive 4-day Leadership Development program designed to provide current and future leaders with the tools needed to inspire and lead their team and organization, today and into the future. Thrive is designed to be provocative. The degree to which you will experience a personal change in your leadership is entirely up to you.
What are the goals and objectives of THRIVE?
The goals of the program include, but are not limited to:
- Understanding the role of leadership in organizational success
- Developing greater self-awareness and competence in use-of-self as an instrument of change
- Increasing one's ability to recognize and manage emotions
- Learning how to develop a high performing team
- Creating new strategies using influence to deal with workplace situations
- Gaining a deeper understanding of conflict styles and resolution techniques
- Recognizing your own learning styles, strengths and challenges to create a personal learning plan
What is the difference between training and development?
Both training and development are necessary for the growth of a leader. However, they have different purposes and therefore address different needs. Training is the process of teaching a specific task or transferring knowledge. Training is a short-term, tactical effort to address today’s business needs. Development is the progressive growth of acquiring a set of skills. Development is a long-term, strategic effort focused on tomorrow’s business results. Thrive is a leadership development program.
Who will be leading this program?

How is this program different from other offerings?
Thrive limits the size of each cohort to ensure personalized attention and an optimum faculty to participant ratio. The customized content incorporates the latest in industry best practices and lessons learned. The “intra-session” component enables enhanced real-world experience in the setting that matters the most, your organization.
