Program Highlights

What’s in it for me?

  1. Develop your professional identity with enhanced self-awareness and emotional intelligence (EQ).
  2. Create a personalized leadership approach for you and your work, a plan for tangible impact, and new tools to make it all happen.
  3. Enhance your ability to work in a team and support the learning of others.

What’s in it for my organization?

  1. Improved leadership ability in those who have growing responsibilities but have little formal leadership or management training.
  2. Increased engagement from individual contributors and emerging leaders - an important group in the success of any organization.
  3. Employees who emerge with a sense of direction for themselves and their organization, and a plan for having an immediate impact.

The Leader Lab provides all of this at an affordable cost of $1800 per person or $7,500 for a team of five.

This program is also available for the Canada Alberta Job Grant which can cover up to 2/3 of the total training costs up to a maximum of $10,000.00 per Trainee per fiscal year and $300,000.00 per organization per fiscal year).
