The Northern Leadership Development Program (NLDP) is intended to provide individuals employed in “front line” positions in industry with an enhanced awareness of self, self-expression, interpersonal skills, decision making, and stress management practices which result in stronger leadership practices. The program objective is to prepare these individuals to advance to more senior positions within their organization.
The NLDP uses a variety of best practice leadership models throughout the program’s nine courses, including an emphasis on emotional intelligence. A governing theme throughout the program is centered on the awareness that organizational development practices that utilize emotional intelligence result in measureable achievement including higher team performance and enhanced organizational financial performance.
The NLDP is unique in that each student will have an identified leadership mentor located at their place of work to support their growth and their application of what they are learning as they progress through the program. This onsite support is an important element that maximizes each student’s leadership growth and development throughout the program.
This program is designed for potential leaders within an organization as well as people new to supervisory or management roles, such as team leaders or front line supervisors.
