Individual Leadership Development - done in a group setting
This is individual work but done in a safe group setting. So they are not an intact team but will represent a cross-section of the company's departments. They are focused on themselves but have the benefit of learning from the experiences and ideas of their peers. Through the process, they strengthen themselves and also their relationships across the company.
The curriculum can be chosen from a variety of possible modules. And we can customize this together to be either a six or twelve month personal development program.
I have developed processes around existing leading edge tools like Gallup’s Strengths-Based Leadership and The Leadership Circle's 360 Profile to create a robust program that is guaranteed to give your participants significant insights at every turn about their impact and blindspots and limiting beliefs and natural strengths and then support in generating strategic action steps and then following up on that momentum.
The outcome being that these leaders have some tools to give them a better understanding of their impact and a specifc action plan on how to consciously calibrate it.
A decade of expertise:
This is not just theory. For the last ten years, Suchitra has spearheaded Morpheus, the major leadership development initiative for Softchoice, a fast-growing IT Solutions Provider. In that time they have grown into a billion-dollar publically-traded company with more than 1,200 employees. In 2012, they were recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute for the first time as a Large company, but the seventh year in a row as a Best Workplace. They also ranked 17th amongst the Top 50 Large & Multinational companies in Canada. And Suchitra coaches their high performers! She is responsible for the original design and ongoing delivery of their elite Morpheus program that grooms high potential leaders across the organization. During the recent economic slowdown it was one of only three development programs they continued to run at the unanimous opinion of the executive.
"Suchitra is amazing to work with. She has helped create and facilitate many different programs at Softchoice but the one that she is most known for is our company's top leadership program which she has built and facilitated for 10 years now. Not only was I lucky enough to participate in the program, I've also had the privilege of supporting the program internally and getting a chance to work alongside her. Through her expertise, calming nature and the way she builds instant rapport, Suchitra has an amazing way of taking your initial reactions to a 360 assessment and putting everything in perspective for you. People feel comfortable opening up not only about their professional lives but also their personal lives because they immediately know they can trust her. Her knowledge and passion for Strengths has helped participants realize what they really want to do with their lives; what is important to them, and has given them the confidence to make those changes. The participants come out of this program with a stronger sense of who they are and are motivated to be a better version of themselves both professionally and personally. Her enthusiasm for supporting others in their personal development and leadership is inspiring."
