SALT LAKE CITY, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- From its inception Zenger Folkman's premier offering has been The Extraordinary Leader. The workshop takes a unique strengths-based approach to leadership development and its foundation in behavioral and statistical research is revolutionary. Zenger Folkman has recently completed updating and enhancing this award-winning workshop, and will premiere the new offering at the fifth annual Extraordinary Leadership Summit in Park City, Utah, this week.
"This year we have entirely re-branded our offerings," said Joe Folkman, President of Zenger Folkman, "Our look and feel now matches our message about the vital importance of our strengths-based emphasis in elevating leadership skills. This effort now includes our flagship workshop, which has been developed and enhanced to serve our clients and audiences with an even greater level of success than before."
Following are a few of the changes made to the program:
- A new tool, the Overall Leadership Effectiveness Index, is now included. This highly-requested feature displays an overall leadership score covering all competencies and compares the participant's score against global norms.
- The Competency Companion Development Guide has been streamlined and made more prescriptive. The guide lists developmental recommendations for each Competency Companion. These recommendations are found by empirical research to have the most substantial impact on leadership development and success.
- The workshop features updated graphics, new charts, and enhanced case studies to make learning concepts easier and more meaningful.
"Now, more than ever, organizations require extraordinary leaders," said Jack Zenger, CEO and co-founder of Zenger Folkman. "They need people who are willing to step up, work hard, and become more inspiring and extraordinary. Our leadership development programs will boost leaders' effectiveness at motivating others to reach higher levels of performance and create organizational success. The results they achieve will improve employee satisfaction, increase engagement and increase profitability."
The Extraordinary Leader Workshop is featured this month at Zenger Folkman's Annual Leadership Summit. Register now to attend. The summit will be held July 28-August 1 in Park City, UT.
