Change can be hard to achieve, even a shift or development we desire or envision for ourselves. This change could be evolving into leadership habit or stopping a personal behaviour that is a barrier to our ideal self. Explore your barriers using the Immunity to Change framework developed by Dr. Robert Kegan and Dr. Lisa Lahey, scholars in the study of adult development theory.
Leaders—executive, operations, human resources—valiantly pursue the growth and development of the leadership behaviour, competence, and presence their organizations need. A process that validates shared understanding and alignment to strategic and business objectives can enable clarity and commitment and support the success of leadership development programs. Using LEGO® Serious Play methodology, leaders can examine programs at any stage of the design or implementation process.
This four-week online course was designed to generate insight and clarity for you—the developing leader—to advance toward the impact and influence that you envision. You will explore a different leadership concept each week to decide for yourself the leadership mindset, approach, and behaviours that are aligned to your aspirations and your real-world context. Combining self-directed, asynchronous activities with a weekly instructor-led discussion, you can “level up your leadership” no matter where you are on your professional journey, from your mobile device or computer.
Team members often know when their team isn’t functioning well; equally frequent is lack of clarity as to what is going wrong, how to articulate what they want, and what they have to do to bring that vision to reality. Using LEGO® Serious Play, teams are taken through a self-diagnosis of team habits that are getting in the way of the kind of work they envision.
