Leadership...perhaps the only truly sustainable competitive advantage. Dr. Harold Resnick
UNF Division of Continuing Education, in partnership with Dr. Harold S. Resnick, is proud to offer a proven leadership development program that has been implemented successfully with executives at all levels throughout North and South America, Europe and the Middle East for more than twenty-five years. This program has now been offered in Northeast Florida for more than a decade. Dozens of organizations have implemented customized programs within their own companies, and hundreds of companies have participated by sending individuals or teams of leaders to the UNF-sponsored "Invitational Leadership program." This program has been successfully offered by UNF and over-subscribed for the past six consecutive years.
The program combines the learning experience of core leadership concepts along with real-time applications so that both the participants and their organizations experience real and immediate benefits.
The program is personally delivered by Dr. Harold S. Resnick. During his thirty-five years in organizational development, Dr. Resnick has earned national and international recognition as a leading authority and innovator in organizational transformation and leadership development. He has published extensively, and provides a monthly newsletter available for subscription at no charge directly from his website, www.worksystems.com
This leadership program recognizes and is designed to address the following business challenges:
The Challenges of Today's Business Environment
The Invitational Leadership Development Program is offered by the UNF Division of Continuing Education as part of its executive development offerings. This invitational program enables participating companies to send as few as one and as many as five managers from their organizations to participate as a team. Total program enrollment is capped in order to provide an extraordinary learning experience for each participant.
For smaller organizations, the program is best suited to owners, presidents, vice presidents and directors. For larger organizations, the program delivers the greatest impact among the executive team, vice presidents, directors, senior and upper middle level managers.
This program also creates great benefit for individuals and teams who have significant management or leadership responsibilities in their respective organizations. This may include functional (departmental) management responsibilities, cross-functional team responsibilities or other similar leadership roles.
This is not a program for beginning managers or supervisors.
Once nominated, participating individuals and organizations must be qualified to ensure they meet these criteria, so that the participants will be prepared to make use of the higher level of program instruction and the direct business applications.
This program contains a number of elements designed to provide fully integrated, self-reinforcing learning experiences.
Seven one-day instructional modules
The integrating vehicle for the program is the series of seven one-day facilitated sessions delivered one day per month over seven consecutive months in an action learning style. In addition to the highly developed program content, each group applies the content by working on real-time organizational issues and problems.
Participants receive a comprehensive manual and PowerPoint deck providing the related content for each module. Participants also receive several Harvard Business Review articles each month as part of their preparation for the next session. A wide variety of instruments, personal assessments and other action learning tools are also included as an integral part of the program support materials.
To help ensure application of the concepts and skills developed in the program, learning teams are formed to reinforce personal action plans and on-the-job applications. When participating organizations send several individuals as a team, they maximize this benefit. Company teams of three or more individuals are maintained as intact teams through the program learning experience.
For organizations that only send one or two participants table groups are established with other organizations that are aligned in terms of size, market segment, organizational structure, etc. For example, there may be a non-profit group, a public sector group, a small company group and one or two larger organizational groups.
Companies who compete directly with each other are not allowed to participate in the same class. This is accommodated through a 'first come - first served" model.
Supplemental individual coaching
Dr. Resnick maintains personal availability to the participants between sessions. Individuals may call for personal discussion or coaching, or share materials for feedback via fax or email.
Feedback to senior management
Before, during and after the program feedback sessions are available to the managers of the participants and to the senior executives of the sponsoring organization to enhance the learning and application of each participant. These feedback sessions are provided upon request.
Action learning and real-work implementation
Because this program is conducted over seven months with multiple experiences to tie the learning together, the program can focus on real-time action learning and implementation issues. Learning teams are created and used to identify and apply real-time work issues through collective action. Assignments are given to both individuals and learning teams for real-time work applications between the learning sessions. The class becomes a fully integrated real-work action laboratory in which ideas and activities are developed in the classroom, tried out on-the-job, and then feedback is provided between sessions and in the next formal workshop experience.
