The initial online leadership development program will focus on emerging leaders and managers by applying the methods and philosophy of the Innovative Leadership Workbook for Emerging Leaders and Managers as its foundation, and will deliver weekly e-mail with leadership development exercises. Additionally, participants have the option to take part in webinars and can also select a coaching to accompany the online development process for an additional fee. This model will provide a range of options for emerging leaders to enhance their skills and build their careers. See sample series posted on Metcalf & Associates blog as a series from December 5, 2012 through January 21, 2013.

“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,” says Metcalf. 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 a leader develops and incorporates 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.

“This workbook helps you ask key questions of yourself as you advance 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.
