According to HR.com, “For the past 30 years, Leadership Excellence has identified and recognized the top 500 leadership organizations and their strategies and solutions in our yearly ranking issues. This award recognizes top leadership practitioners.”

The lead program designer and instructor for ODJFS is David Sapper, a pioneer in leadership development. David taught segments of the program and assembled a team of leadership experts to augment him in providing a high impact experience that delivers ongoing value to the agency.

Metcalf, also an instructor for the program, says, “Leadership needs innovation the way innovation demands leadership. By combining them, you improve your capacity to deliver results and your organization’s capacity to affect change.”

The Innovative Leadership Workbook for Emerging Leaders and Managers, designed specifically for busy people, includes field-tested processes and worksheets for innovating how you lead, transforming your organization, and creating sustainability. The workbook takes readers on their own leadership journey through a series of development activities while providing insight into the thought processes of two different and highly successful emerging leaders whose unique challenges provide invaluable insight into how leaders develop and incorporate innovation both personally and professionally.

The Innovative Leadership Workbook for Emerging Leaders and Managers provides a six-step process for developing innovative leadership qualities through a combination of well-researched theory, two practical business case studies, and corresponding tools and templates. The first two chapters of the book are available for complimentary download.

We also have a companion online ten-month program with leadership development exercises delivered weekly by e-mail. For an additional fee, participants also have the option to take part in webinars, or select coaching to accompany the online development process. This model provides a range of options for emerging leaders to enhance their skills and build their careers.

“This workbook helps you ask key questions of yourself as you emerge into leadership roles. Be patient as you grow. Take notes and be grateful for both good and mediocre leaders. The good ones model the way. The bad ones remind us what not to do. This workbook will help shape you into an excellent leader.” —Carla Paonessa, Chair, LeaderShape Board of Directors and Retired Managing Partner, Accenture.
