Leadership 254 challenges, stretches and, most importantly, transforms participants into leaders who can positively affect their county and Texas.
Participants can expect to engage in the rudiments of self-examination to better appreciate the personal awareness and growth needed to be an effective leader.
Participants will take part in mental and physical challenges by means of experiential exercises and activities. Some participants may find these exercises challenging, but accommodations can be made in order for participants to meet the objectives of each module. If you require special accommodations, please contact , (800) 456-5974.
Participants will complete pre-module and post-module assignments throughout the program, individually, in teams and with an accountability partner.
Assignments will be sent electronically, to the participant email provided, prior to the corresponding module. Printed material will be distributed during each module. Participants will also have access to download a free smartphone application called CrowdCompass that will be customized for each class to create community and connectivity during, between and after modules.
In-Depth Assessments Included in Leadership 254
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ® (MBTI)
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment traces the patterns in behavior to one of 16 distinct personality types. It provides a framework for self-understanding and appreciating the differences in others. Strengths, tendencies, perspective, decision-making style, communication style — these are all components of personal nature. When a person really knows them self, possibilities open — in their job, their relationships and their life. With MBTI® insights, participants will not only better understand and appreciate themselves, but also better understand and appreciate others. Participants will see themselves in a new light — learning their strengths and difficulties; how they think, feel and communicate; how they relate to others and how those people relate to them; and how to move ahead with their life.
Gallup’s StrengthsFinders 2.0
StrengthsFinder is the Gallup Organization’s assessment tool that helps individuals and teams understand their unique talents and how to use their strengths effectively when working with others. The tool is grounded in decades of research based on two fundamental assumptions: 1) Each person’s talents are enduring and unique; 2) Each person’s greatest room for growth is in the areas of his or her greatest strengths.
