Townsend Leadership Program
Effective leadership is based on a strong combination of task skills and people skills. Leaders need a foundation of character, a framework of emotional intelligence, appropriate expertise, and the intelligence to put these all together effectively. The best leaders are lifetime learners as they understand the need to continually grow as they progress in their responsibilities and expectations. A cohort system is recognized as a highly effective part of this growth process. Unfortunately many leaders fall short in their effectiveness because they see themselves as too busy to invest in growth.
The Townsend Leadership Program (TLP) is a program developed by Dr. John Townsend, a recognized author, psychologist, business consultant, and leadership coach to help leaders maximize their effectiveness. The fundamental premise of TLP is that leadership is based on the combination of competency and character. TLP is a cohort program where members meet for a full day once a month for teaching on leadership and effectiveness, individual SWOT analysis exercises, and intensive interactional small group sessions. Participants set individual long- and short-term goals. Between the meetings there are resources for growth and a relational-connection accountability system amongst the group members as well as individual coaching from the Program Director.
