Our Integrated Learning Model
For all of our programs, we have developed a unique integrated learning model that optimizes skills training and promotes deep understanding of the material. We based this model on our extensive experience delivering outcome-based training and with the input and insight of the top practitioners and instructors in each field.
The model consists of four crucial elements required for deep learning:
The Future Leaders Professional Certificate Program is comprised of the following modules:
The Certificate Program Kickoff serves as a crucial introductory event for participants, providing them with a valuable opportunity to connect with their program coach. During this session, participants will not only establish a rapport with their coach but also gain a clear understanding of the desired outcomes aligned with their organization’s goals.
The program launches with a comprehensive knowledge and skills assessment for each student to evaluate their individual project management strengths, weaknesses, and gaps. This pre-program assessment will establish a baseline to assess knowledge and skills gained throughout the program.
There are five coaching sessions that are conducted throughout the program. The purpose of these coaching sessions is to review the prior modules, solidify the learning, and allow for time for additional questions and further discussion. The coach’s role is to support participants in implementing and adopting the actions discussed during the coaching sessions.
Immediately after completion of course 6, Leading Innovations in Teams, each participant will receive a post-program knowledge and skills assessment to take a snapshot of their current competency levels. The results of this assessment are compared with the pre-program assessment to measure the knowledge and skills gained throughout each student’s journey. The results will be examined in the following ROI workshop.
The culminating ROI (Return-On-Investment) workshop is a four-hour virtual session in which participants review individual performance with the lead instructor and coach, and receive recommendations for how to best apply their new leadership knowledge and skills at their workplace. This session is scheduled about 30 days after the completion of the final course, followed by a brief virtual graduation ceremony to close the program.
